Our core values

We're driven by a unique set of values that underpin everything we do, every day. We created these values together, to reflect our culture today, and to drive the company we want to be tomorrow. More than just words on a page, we're ready to live these ideals - always striving to be a better employer for our colleagues and a better partner to our customers.


We work as one, and together, we’re ready for anything.


We’re open, curious, and honest with each other, unafraid to embrace the new.


We’re driven by a passion for better, because we love what we do.


No matter what, we do the right thing – we’re all responsible for the right outcome.


We take time to recognise and celebrate each other, and what we achieve together.

Our engineering team is one step ahead - developing tomorrow’s fuel storage, today. We lead because we listen – to customers on the ground, and innovation from within.
