The Nexxus Group Welcomes Alliance Energy into its Growing Family

DANVERS, Massachusetts (May 12, 2012) — Alliance Energy, the retail division of Global Partners LP, has become the latest company to partner with The Nexxus Group, an industry-leading provider of Scan Based Trading solutions. The Nexxus Group will employ its proprietary Scan Based Trading program to manage the newspaper category at more than 125 Alliance Energy locations throughout the Northeast.

Alliance Energy was established more than 70 years ago by Abraham Slifka as a one-truck retail kerosene business in Eastern Massachusetts. The company’s third-generation owners follow the same guiding principles as their grandfather and have seen the company grow to the point that it now owns and operates convenience stores and gas stations in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The program with The Nexxus Group will commence on Monday, June 30, 2012.

“We are excited to move forward with The Nexxus Group! The next generation of publication consolidation that Nexxus represents will save us significant processing time at both the store and accounts payable level not to mention an advocate in ensuring the accuracy of our billing and credits,” says Peter G. Kempton, Alliance Energy’s Director of Marketing.

“We are excited about the efficiencies that our program will bring to Alliance Energy,” says Jim Rao, Chairman and Founder of The Nexxus Group. “We look forward to working with such a growth-minded company with such a long and storied history.”

Fortune 500 company Global Partners LP, a leader in the storage, distribution and marketing of energy products in the Northeast, completed its acquisition of Alliance Energy in early March. Alliance President Andrw Slifka has joined Global as President of its service station, convenience store and related supply division.
