Matt Terry 25 years

In 2013, he took over from his father, Mike Terry, to become the Managing Director after being the Commercial Director for 15 years, which started a new chapter for the company, which has gone from strength to strength ever since.

Centre Tank Services has been established for over 35 years and under Matt’s guidance has resulted in CTS becoming one of the UK's leading suppliers for fuel dispensing, storage tank, lubrication and AdBlue equipment.

The day was celebrated with a buffet, speeches, gifts, and a presentation for Matt on his accomplishments over the years in pictures, with all employees in attendance to show their appreciation and support.

Graham Morrell, Group CEO of Flowmax, kicked off proceedings with a speech on how Matt started within the business and his achievements over the years.

“CTS is one of the most consistent growth and delivery businesses within the Flowmax Group, and I think a lot of that is down to the employees and the support that they get from Matt in his role. We really appreciate him for that as it shows a really strong community here at CTS.”

Matt Terry 25 years

Centre Tank Services was the third company to join the Flowmax Group in 1998, which now comprises of 15 companies from the UK and overseas, which are all involved in the fluid handling market. Being part of the group strengthened the businesses market position and offered CTS the strategic and financial backup of being part of a larger group to create the CTS Group.

The CTS Group was initiated after acquiring Castle Pumps in 2012, a marine and industrial pump supplier near Nottingham. Then, in 2018, The CTS Group ventured further into the pump market and acquired a company called Whisper Pumps, a leading independent water pump supplier.

At the end of the presentation and speeches, Matt opened his gifts and card – one of which turned out to be a confetti bomb (the cleaners were thrilled) – and thanked the team at the CTS group.

“It's been a fantastic 25 years! I've worked with some great people in all the companies, CTS and more recently Castle Pumps and Whisper Pumps. A lot of my time over the years has been spent here at the CTS office and some faces have been with me for the whole journey, it's great to be part of such an amazing team. I appreciate everybody who has helped me get to this milestone, thank you very much.”
