Wayne Helix™ Fuel Dispensers Featured at Expo Postos & Conveniência

Wayne will Showcase Its New Global Platform, the Helix Fuel Dispenser, at Expo Postos & Conveniência Trade Show in Brazil.

Austin, Texas - August 21, 2012 — Wayne, A GE Energy Business (NYSE: GE) and a global innovator of fuel dispensers and forecourt technologies, is presenting its new global dispenser line at the Expo Postos & Conveniência trade show in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The international trade show, which features products, technologies and services that support fueling stations, convenience stores and food service outlets, runs today through August 23. This year the event celebrates its 10th anniversary and is expected to receive 170 exhibitors and 15,000 visitors.

Among those exhibitors, Wayne will showcase its recently launched Wayne Helix™ fuel dispenser. This dispenser line is built on a global platform that represents the best of Wayne’s advanced technologies and transaction security in an intelligently designed pump. Wayne created the Helix dispenser based on feedback from around the world. Distributors, retailers, technicians and motorists helped to influence the features, functions and serviceability of this redesigned and reconceived fuel dispenser.

"The Helix dispenser line represents a big step in the progression of forecourt fueling, and we are excited to present it to our customers in South America,” said Paul de la Port, Wayne vice president of products. “The Helix dispenser achieves a sleek iconic design that improves the experience for users, and our customers can expect consistency and simplicity to own and maintain it over the life of the product.”

In addition to the Helix family of dispensers, Wayne will feature its Wayne Vista™, Global Century™ and fleet fuel dispenser lines. Complementing the dispensers will be the Wayne Xflo™ fuel meter, which combines revolutionary engineering and precision design to help maintain accuracy and reduce meter drift. Fuel retailers also will see demonstrations of the Wayne Fusion™ forecourt system, which provides comprehensive forecourt control—including multiple device and POS management, reporting and remote visibility—all in a single tool. Wayne also will showcase several value-added solutions, including media, automatic tank gauging, technology services and remote support via Wayne’s network operations center (NOC).

Wayne Global President Neil Thomas remarks, “It is a very exciting time here at Wayne, and we are looking forward to the opportunity to display our hard work and dedication to the fuel dispenser industry and our customers. This is our chance to show the world the fuel dispensers and forecourt technologies of the 21st century.”

Fuel retailers around the globe will have additional opportunities to see the new Helix fuel dispenser line along with the latest Wayne products, technologies and services. After Expo Postos & Conveniência, Wayne travels to Frankfurt, Germany for Automechanika in September, and then to Las Vegas for the NACS Show in October. Wayne will begin taking orders for Helix fuel dispensers later this year.
