GREENSBORO, NC--(Marketwire - March 28, 2011) -  Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores ( has awarded Gilbarco Veeder-Root a three-year contract to supply Gilbarco® forecourt equipment, including Gilbarco® fuel dispensers, Veeder-Root® tank monitoring systems and Red Jacket® submersible turbine pumps.

Love's ranks 18th on the 2010 Forbes List of Largest Privately Held U.S. Companies.

"Gilbarco Veeder-Root's superior quality, support and service network, made it a logical choice to continue our partnership," said Terry Ross, vice president of construction for Love's.

Their decision was based in part on Gilbarco's broad selection of dispensers for truck stops, including the first-of-its-kind Encore® S DEF + 1 that provides Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) from one hose and Diesel fuel from another at the same fueling position.

"Travel plazas are looking for maximum uptime and minimal delays on their forecourt," said Chad Johnson, marketing manager at Gilbarco Veeder-Root.
