Maxol’s acquisition of three service stations, formerly owned by Esso, has been cleared by the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC), paving the way for the company's expansion plans in Leinster.
The service stations in question are located on the Naas Road, Kill, Co.Kildare; Greenhills Road, Greenhills, Dublin 12, and at the junction of the Naas Road and the Long Mile Road, Walkinstown, Dublin 12
Commenting on the news, Brian Donaldson, the incoming Group Chief Executive of Maxol said, "This year is particularly exciting for Maxol as the success of our expansion strategy is evident in our multiple site openings of late and those in the pipeline.
"We are delighted to now add these three quality Leinster locations to our growing service station network from 1 July."
He went on to say that the company is keen to grow its presence in Leinster, and that the addition of the three service stations complements the other four locations that is has been developing in the region.
After opening a new outlet in Dundalk last October, this year has seen Maxol open its biggest service station to date near Mulhuddart in North Dublin, as well as its Donabate site, which was unveiled last week with the help of local TD, Brendan Ryan.
Maxol has also started work in another site in Ballycoolin, Dublin, which is expected to be open by the end of the year.
Donaldson added, "The future for Maxol represents even more exciting developments and investment right across the country as we continue with our innovative approach to forecourt convenience retailing."
