Maxol Marks Centenary With Commemorative Book Launch

Maxol today marked 100 years in business with the launch of a commemorative book charting the 100-year history of the company in Ireland.

'Maxol 1920–2020: Celebrating the First Hundred Years of an Irish Family Company' was compiled and written by historian and author, Turtle Bunbury.

The forecourt retailer said that the book features archive material and personal recollections, which is set against a backdrop of historical events including the Second World War, the Suez Crisis and the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

'Response To The COVID-19 Crisis'

Printing of the book was delayed to allow for a chapter on Maxol’s response to the COVID-19 crisis, the company explained.


Founded by William McMullan in 1920, Maxol is today a fourth-generation family business.

The 260 page, hardback coffee-table-style book is available to purchase from Easons nationwide.
