Cashzone, one the UK's fastest growing independent ATM providers, today announces that it will retain and add to the ATMs it operates at the First Motorways sites newly acquired by Roadchef, one of the country's leading Motorway Service Area (MSA) operators.
Roadchef's acquisition of First Motorways in August added the Magor MSA, at junction 23A of the M4, and the Symonds Yat trunk road site on the A40 to its portfolio of sites, increasing its motorway service area estate to 20 locations across the UK.
Cashzone, which fully manages all ATMs across the Roadchef motorway network, will retain its existing ATMs at both sites and acquires provision of the unit at Magor.
"Having just extended our contract with Cashzone to 2017, it makes perfect sense to continue the exclusive ATM partnership with the company as our business evolves and expands," remarks Michael Heaton, Roadchef's Director of Loss Prevention.
"We're planning to invest over £1 million on developing the Magor MSA, installing leading catering and retail brands, and a customer environment which best reflects Roadchef's values. Cashzone's ATM reliability and availability is a proven and natural fit for that standard of service."
Tim Halford, Business Development Director at Cashzone, echoes the sentiment: "Our relationship with Roadchef just goes from strength to strength and we're proud to be its ATM partner of choice. Retaining and expanding our fully managed services at the two news sites underpins the mutual value and reflects the trust inherent in our long-held partnership."
Earlier this summer, Roadchef reported its ATM revenues up by some 3% on 2010 - exceeding projected forecasts, which it attributes to Cashzone's service excellence.
The expanding portfolio and exclusivity agreement with Roadchef firmly underpins Cashzone's position as its trusted ATM partner of choice in the motorway service sector.
