Australia’s largest independent fuel operator Puma Energy has expanded its national network this week with the opening of its Puma Mt Larcom service station on 17 May.
The development will provide much-needed fuel and convenience services to the Mt Larcom community as well as tourists, truck drivers and locals travelling along the Bruce Highway in Far North Queensland.
Puma Energy Australia General Manager Jim Raszyk said the station would bring 20 local jobs to the region and includes high flow diesel, dedicated truck refuelling bays and a 7th Street café.
“This new site is part of our plan to provide exceptional service and unique customer benefits throughout Queensland, and we are excited to become part of the Mt Larcom community,” Mr Raszyk said.
“As we grow our network across Queensland, it’s important that we provide real benefits to local communities and Puma Mt Larcom allows us to service our customers where demand is great.
“We know competition provides choice to customers and we are confident this new site will help connect locals to our fuel network in the far north and provide a point of difference to competitors.
“We are proud of our strong network of more than 400 sites and look forward to becoming an important part of the local infrastructure.”
Mr Raszyk said Puma Energy wanted to celebrate the Mt Larcom site’s importance to the community so Puma Energy commissioned the construction of a metal bull from car parts to feature in front of the service station.
“We would love the community’s help to name our Mt Larcom bull, so will be running a social media competition seeking ideas and suggestions from those keen to have naming rights!” he said.
“To celebrate our opening, we will be hosting a Community Day on June 2, and encourage everyone to come down to enjoy a live radio broadcast, sausage sizzle, face painting and great giveaways.”
“Plus, customers will receive some great perks on the day, and we’ll be announcing the winner of our name-the-bull competition.”
