£30m contract extension for Wincanton

AvantiGas, the LPG supplier, has extended its contract with Wincanton or five years in a deal worth £30m.

Wincanton has worked for AvantiGas since 2002 delivering liquid petroleum gas in a 40-vehicle fleet to domestic and commercial customers from seven sites around the country.

Richard Buggins, operations manager at AvantiGas, said: “We are looking to drive the business forward, and to strengthening this partnership over the coming years.”

Driver numbers range from 56 during peak winter months down to between 30 and 40 during the summer.

Chris Kingshott, managing director manufacturing at Wincanton, said the redeployment of assets and drivers to other Wincanton contracts with complementary seasonal demands ensured that AvantiGas’s investment would be “fully optimised”.
