MCW Fuels Receives Prestigious "Circle of Excellence" Distributor Award From Valero

SHEDIAC, NB and FRANKFURT, GERMANY--(Marketwire - Apr 16, 2012) - MCW Energy Group (FRANKFURT: MW4), a Canadian company involved in oil production/distribution and oil sands recovery technology, today announced that the Company has received a prestigious award as a key distributor for Valero Marketing and Supply Company.

During the 2012 Valero National Distributor Conference (VNDC) held in San Antonio, Texas in March 2012, MCW Fuels was honored by the Valero Marketing & Supply Company with a prestigious "Circle of Excellence Award" as an outstanding distributor/jobber for the growing Valero Brand. The Award recognizes accomplishments by Valero's distributors for outstanding leadership in fuel branding, as well as maintaining a high level of industry business relationships.

"Everyone at MCW Fuels and the MCW Energy Group are extremely pleased to be selected as a recipient of this benchmark award from Valero, one of America's key fuel suppliers," stated David Sutton, Chief Operating Officer. The "Circle of Excellence Award" represents the culmination of several intensive research programs which were applied to Valero's 4,800 branded jobbers in four regional areas throughout its vast distribution network. Only 12 distributors were chosen to receive this award on the basis of criteria such as high mystery shopper scores, point-of-purchase promotional participation, site growth and average service station sales volumes.

Valero is currently one of America's largest fuel producers/retailers with service stations from coast to coast, and is one of the country's largest ethanol producers with considerable investments in biofuels. Valero is also expanding its service station network into the southeastern, Great Lakes and northeastern regions.

Established in 1938, MCW Fuels (formerly McWhirter Distributing Company), has been distributing fuels for several major brands including Valero, and offers comprehensive branding programs, signage assistance and state-of-the-art accounting systems to a wide variety of independent customers who embark on re-branding programs. These services include credit card processing, inventory control systems and price management. MCW Fuels is also currently involved in marketing its own brand of fuel, MCW Fuel, which is now being introduced throughout several Californian markets.
