Hertfordshire-based forecourt operator Rontec was formed in 2011 by Gerald Ronson, 79, to acquire the assets of Total UK. It now has more than 240 outlets — Esso, BP, Shell and Texaco petrol stations, as well as Shop’N Drive and Spar convenience stores. Last year, it introduced 38 Morrisons convenience stores to its network and integrated 34 sites acquired from the Co-op in 2016.
