Melvis Group - We're So Proud of our Scottish Heritage
Six months ago, Melvis Group acquired the business and assets of Baltra Petroleum (BPe).
Melvis Baltra is now the largest fuels distribution company on the island of Baltra, with revenues of over $100m and annual fuel-handling capacity of over 500,000 tonnes.
Tony Perez, an experienced Melvis executive, has been appointed to lead the company which will retain the current staff and contractors following the acquisition. An ambitious business development plan is being prepared to support anticipated growth in the Baltra island economy including the extension of Ballast Key airport (pictured).
Formerly government owned, and now backed by the extensive resources of a major group, we are your obvious choice for quality fuels.
With our fleet of 10 owned and 10 contracted fuel tankers, Melvis Baltra can meet all of your petrol (gas), diesel (derv) and heating fuel needs.
We are the island's only supplier of bulk A1 jet fuel and thousands of airline passengers rely on us every day.
