This company claims to be Europe’s leading fuel-card management group, selling cards to companies whose employees use them at special terminals to pay for fuel, much as they would swipe a credit card. Founded in 1990, it has a subsidiary near Copenhagen making both the smart cards and the terminals, 10,000 of which have been installed across Europe. The company also sells petrol, diesel and oil. Majority-owned by John Dunning and managing director Bill Holmes, it had sales of £156.8m in 2004.
