Maxol’s expansion in the Greater Dublin area continues with the signing of an Asset Purchase Agreement with Topaz, to acquire three of the latter’s service stations. The sites are located on the Naas Road in Kildare, Greenhills in Dublin 12 and at the junction of Naas Road and Long Mile Road, also in Dublin 12. A mergers notification has been submitted to the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission.
Brian Donaldson, Maxol’s incoming group chief executive said the company is delighted to add the three sites to its network. “We have been keen to strengthen our presence in the Leinster area for some time,” he said, “and these three stations will allow Maxol to serve a great many new customers in Ireland’s most densely populated region.”
The new sites, when the transfer is complete, will complement four other new Maxols in the offing, in Dundalk, Donabate, Ballycoolin and in Mulhuddart where the company’s largest-ever station opened very recently.
“The future for Maxol is exciting as our current expansion strategy continues,” said Donaldson. “The service station business today is about much more than motor fuel, it’s about the entire customer experience. In that regard, all of our new developments include high quality convenience and fresh food offerings.
“We look forward to the outcome of the current CCPC process and to making further announcements on our expansion plans across Ireland in the very near future,” he added.
