now in the process of converting all of its stores to
LED lighting. At the time of this writing, 35 of the
chain’s company stores have already been outfitted
with LED on the canopy. Looking into the future,
Fishback notes that local utilities and Ricker’s oil
company partners are beginning to step up with
LED rebates and incentives that should boost their
savings and shorten their payback even more. With
the success of LED in the forecourt, Ricker is now
looking to bring the new lighting technology inside
their stores, as well.
For a community-friendly chain like Ricker,
the nonfinancial advantages of LED are just as
important. Fishback was particularly pleased with
how the lighting makeover helped transform one
underperforming store. Within days after the February 2012
conversion was completed, he received a thank-you note
from the store’s manager raving about the difference the LED
fixtures had made. Customers who were previously hesitant
to visit his once poorly lit store now felt comfortable and safe.
That kind of benefit is obviously worth its weight in gold.

In fact, the PMP mission is to remanufacture products to performbetterthannew! That’sthe PMPstandard.
We accomplish this by completely remanufacturing every product that comes our way — not just repairing the
obvious defects. We go through each valve, printer, cash drawer, meter, computer,
vapor recovery pump and register from top to bottom, inside and out — inspecting,
repairing and replacing anything that’s not 100% operational. We use the best parts
and highest quality materials throughout the remanufacturing process. Finally, we
rigorously test each and every unit to ensure it performs according to the PMP standard.
That’s how we make our customers shine!
