Whale Tankers has expanded and restructured its service department with Phil Greenfield leading the business side of the team as service business manager.

Phil joined Solihull-based Whale after spending 19 years in the service department with commercial vehicle specialist Listers.

Andy McFarlane continues to head up the technical element as service manager which includes coordination of Whale's 17 field engineers operating the length and breadth of the UK and providing service support to customers.

Phil said: 'We've created what we believe to be the best tanker service offering in the UK today. Our aim first and foremost is to give excellent service involving a quality and speedy turnaround for the operator. This in turn will ensure maximum uptime on all of our customers' vehicles.

'Among the services we can provide are technical and electronic servicing and support as well as specialist repairs such as welding.

'Speed of turnaround on repairs and service is critical and making sure customers' vehicles get back on the road as soon as possible to avoid any costly downtime is one of our main goals.  We believe our new structure and method of operation will deliver this and more.â€
