Dresser Wayne® and Additech™ Provide Consumers with Unique Fuel Additive to Keep Their Engines Clean – Available at Retailer H-E-B®
Austin, TX (October 16, 2009) – Dresser Wayne, a global innovator of fuel dispensers and technology, and Additech, Inc., a leading North American outsourced operator of at-the-pump interactive merchandising systems, are pleased to announce the first fuel dispenser that incorporates the Additech fuel additive dispenser technology. The fuel additive injection system, on the popular Dresser Wayne Ovation dispenser, is in use at H-E-B fueling sites.
Customers will now be able to add the Additech engine cleaning solution to their fuel at the dispenser making it convenient for motorists to maintain their fueling systems while they pump gas. The Additech system integrates seamlessly into Ovation dispensers through the Dresser Wayne iX™ Media platform. It is installed, operated, and maintained by Additech. Retailers receive the benefits of a hassle-free, reliable system that helps to boost net profits.
“Together, Dresser Wayne and Additech delivered a solution that exceeded our expectations and improved the fueling experience for our customers,” said George Presses, director of petroleum marketing at H-E-B. “H-E-B customers appreciate the interactive Ovation dispenser with its Additech service offering, and H-E-B enjoys the profits this solution delivers,” added James Aulds, vice president of petroleum marketing at H-E-B.
“This solution from Dresser Wayne and Additech allows retailers to increase their forecourt profits and in-store sales without a large investment in car wash or other forecourt technology,” said Mike Carlson, president of Dresser Wayne North America.
“Not only is the new Additech system on the Ovation dispenser easy and convenient for consumers, it also creates an attractive profit stream for retailers. These profits can be used to fund fuel dispenser upgrades, such as PCI compliance improvements, or to improve a retailer’s bottom line,” said Ralph Koehrer, CEO of Additech.
