Maxol to create 60 jobs in Antrim with largest site to date in Northern Ireland
25 October 2016 | 0
Following the opening of its largest development in the Republic of Ireland earlier this year at Mulhuddart in Dublin, Maxol has now announced its largest development in Northern Ireland at Tannaghmore, County Antrim.
The 2.5 acre site on the main A26 between Antrim and Ballymena will be a state of the art motorway style service station offering first class forecourt convenience and facilities for trucks and coaches. Well-known franchises will provide freshly prepared food for eating on the premises or to take-away. Maxol has appointed Lowry Building & Civil Engineering as its main contractors to develop the facility and work began on the Ballymena bound service station in September.
The service station is scheduled for completion in the Spring of 2017 and will create 60 new jobs. Maxol is seeking an experienced retailer to be the licensee at the new premises and you can find out more at Maxol.ie/opportunity.
“Today’s announcement comes on the back of a rolling programme of around £95 million worth of investment,” said Brian Donaldson, CEO, Maxol. This was spent on introducing Maxol’s new modern forecourt identity across Ireland and in acquiring 17 new properties and developing a further 15 service stations since 2012.
Describing Maxol Mulhuddart as the brand’s “first award-winning large scale motorway style services area,” Donaldson added that the company is “looking forward to bringing this successful model to Northern Ireland”.
