Suttons Group has renewed its contract with BP Acetyls, the largest single producer of acetic acid and anhydride in Europe.

The deal sees Suttons confirmed as the exclusive distributor of bulk hazardous liquids in the UK for BP Acetyls . As a result of the deal, Suttons will also invest in a new fleet based at the BP Acetyls site in Saltend, East Yorkshire.

Michael Cundy, MD of Suttons Tankers, said: “We are delighted BP Acetyls chose to renew this business with Suttons and we look forward to a continued successful partnership.

“Our track record of providing a flexible, reliable, and safe service was a key factor in their decision and we will continue to focus on delivering a first class service,” he added.

Suttons did not place a value on the contract, nor a duration for it to run.

Andrew Williamson, commercial director at BP Acetyls Europe, said that Suttons had proved itself as a safe and reliable partner that delivered a high standard of service.

“Our relationship with Suttons means we have a solid understanding of how our teams can work together to ensure continued success and that a quality product is delivered,” Williamson added.
