Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 12, 2012
Petrocon Corporation, a leader of commercial buying groups for construction and heavy industry, and FleetCor Technologies Operating Company, LLC, a global leader in providing fuel card and workforce payment products to businesses, have launched a program to provide fleets an opportunity to purchase fuel at retail fueling stations nationwide while earning rebates on the fuel purchased. “With the rising cost of fuel impacting the construction and trucking sector, we are proud to have partnered with FleetCor to offset the expense of fuel purchased. We looked at some of the other national fuel card providers, but Fleetcor is one of the few that offer a universal card that is accepted at over 160,000 fueling locations nationwide and program packages that allow you to earn substantial rebates-every gallon, every day,” said Joseph D. Giovinazzo, president and founder of Petrocon.
“FleetCor is excited to be partnering with Petrocon to launch an innovative product that offers convenience, control and helps reduce fuel expense for each and every Petrocon member. Petrocon has an established network of members nationally, and we see an opportunity for FleetCor to help those members buy fuel more efficiently,” said Jeff Lamb, executive vice president of Global Products and Strategy, FleetCor Technologies.
“By partnering with FleetCor we are doing a lot more than just offering a fuel program with rebates. We found that many of our members purchase fuel out of habit. They also purchase fuel in avenues that may not be the most efficient. When a member expresses interest in our fuel program, we contact them to perform an evaluation of how they are currently purchasing fuel. More often than not, our consultation provides an avenue for additional savings to the member just by educating them on more efficient ways of purchasing fuel for their fleet. Petrocon is constantly looking at programs that can save our members money and reduce operating costs. We are excited about this fuel program. Fuel costs are having a major impact on our industry, which is already in a state of turmoil with businesses struggling in this economy. We will continue to look hard at how we can leverage our buying power and provide progressive solutions to purchasing commodity materials for our members,” added Giovinazzo.
Petrocon was formed in 2007 to benefit construction companies. A wholesaler of commodity materials, Petrocon gains it strength by leveraging commercial and industrial businesses in the aggregate, mining, cement and heavy duty trucking industry sectors. Petrocon originated as a commercial petroleum buying group made up of construction companies that leveraged buying efforts to purchase lubricants and antifreeze nationally through a wholesale buying platform. Today, Petrocon provides an avenue for construction companies to leverage buying efforts for fuel, lubricants, antifreeze, tires, energy, recycling materials and waste management, as well as wireless expense management.
