Atlanta-based Patriot Capital Corporation has entered into a long-term relationship with the BP Amoco Marketers Association (BPAMA) to provide enhanced services to the trade association’s membership, it was announced today.

The two-year agreement includes designation of Patriot Capital as a “silver sponsor” of BPAMA, as well as access by its membership to special incentives that can help finance desired improvements and expansion at their BP branded retail fuel locations.

“With EMV and other business changes on the horizon, the need for a range of capital and equipment financing options will only increase in the coming years,” said Jack Allard, Executive Director of BPAMA. “We are thrilled that Patriot Capital Corporation has joined with us, and know that our members will benefit from their vision and expertise in financing fuel pumps, point of sale (POS) systems, underground storage tanks (UST’s) and convenience store equipment.”

BPAMA is a collection of 167 BP branded marketers, representing nearly 6,000 domestic BP retail sites and over 80% of all BP branded volume. The Association is dedicated to improving programs while connecting its members to industry best practices and new ideas in an ever-evolving business.

“We know that often, what stands in the way of a Marketer or dealer’s aspirations, is access to competitive and affordable equipment financing,” said Chris Santy, President, Patriot Capital Corporation. “We are committed to helping the BPAMA members access the needed capital to stay competitive by providing hassle-free financing solutions.”
