Fuelman Cites Expertise, National Footprint as Deciding Factor
HOUSTON, September 21, 2011 --- Today, Jiffy Lube International -- the company that pioneered the quick lube industry -- announced Fuelman as a key addition to its roster of fleet customers. Fuelman -- a leading independent provider of commercial fleet fueling services and a division of FleetCor Technologies, Inc. -- is looking to Jiffy Lube to help drive expansion into the preventive maintenance space and offer customers a broader variety and consistency of services.
The Jiffy Lube Fleet Care℠ Program is a valuable resource for fleet preventive maintenance needs. The new relationship with Fuelman means thousands of added vehicle visits to Jiffy Lube service centers in the next 12 months. "Expertise, speed and convenience are three characteristics every customer -- consumer or business-to-business -- values. The relationship we've developed with Fuelman shows how respected our services and brand are in the industry," said Mike McFadden, Fleet Sales Manager for Jiffy Lube International.
Fuelman helps businesses and government entities manage and reduce their fuel expenses and maintenance services.

"We chose to join with Jiffy Lube because of their quality service, national footprint and strong reputation in the marketplace," said Jim Prantl, VP, Merchant Services for Fuelman.
