Fairbanks' commercial director, Michelle King, said: "The industry has embraced the benefits of real-time data analysis and we are pleased that such a significant operator as Morrisons has chosen our system."

 

 

Pace's growth spurt

Meanwhile, 45 existing Pace dealers now have the new imagery after re-signing for another term. These latest additions take Pace's site total to 148. The company said the brand was being favourably received by prospective, new and existing dealers as well as by customers.
