Englefield, Inc., an Ohio-based provider of fuel and lubricants, chose to standardize its c-store and forecourt infrastructure with Gilbarco’s EMVTM solutions, including the Passport® Px60 platform and new Encore® 700S dispensers provided exclusively by Jones & Frank. Jones & Frank will also be providing installation and maintenance services as part of the upgrade.
Englefield operates 118 convenience stores and fuel stations in greater Ohio and West Virginia, under the Duchess and BP brand names. As part of its competitive strategy, it invests in modern equipment and technologies. “We are excited to leverage Gilbarco’s payment expertise, both inside the store and on the forecourt as we complete our EMV transition,” noted Ashley Englefield-DeWitt, Director of Marketing. “We believe that the addition of contactless and large color screens to our refreshed dispensers will attract more customers to our sites,” said Englefield-DeWitt. “Combined with the enhanced security provided by EMV, which our customers are coming to expect, our sites will become our customers’ preferred fueling locations.”
Englefield is approaching the transition in steps, but has already upgraded most its 118 locations to the Passport Px60 platform. The remaining locations will be converted later in 2017. It has also committed to replacing over 300 dispensers by the end of 2018. The dispensers will feature 10.4 inch screens to reach customers with relevant messages to drive customer loyalty and in-store sales. They will also feature contactless payment to enhance transaction speed and security.
“We are pleased to be able to be part of the Englefield team providing state of the art EMV solutions including Gilbarco fuel dispensing and point of sale equipment” said Jim Bolch, CEO of Jones & Frank. “This investment will certainly position Englefield well to serve their customers with modern, secure fueling solutions. It has been a privilege to serve Englefield for over 30 years as their primary provider of fueling equipment.”
