Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

Certas Energy buys its first three forecourts in England

Certas Energy has bought forecourt sites in England for the first time in a deal that will see 13mlpa of retail volume moving to Gulf from Texaco.

It has struck a deal with Petromex Forecourt Services to acquire two sites, Millbrook Way in Preston and Canal Head in Ulverston, with a third, Harwood Bar, also in Preston, secured on a long-term dealer supply agreement. Certas said the acquisition signals a step change as the existing portfolio of 26 sites run by Certas forecourt staff are all in Scotland. "Year-on-year we have been growing our business across the UK and this presented a perfect opportunity to create three flagship Gulf forecourts in the north of England," said Certas retail director Ramsay MacDonald.
