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

MFG acquires 10 Shell sites

09 January, 2013

Motor Fuel Group (MFG), which is number five in the Forecourt Trader Top 50 Indies, has grown its network to 58 stations with the acquisition of 10 outlets from Shell.

Jeremy Clarke, MFG’s managing director, said: “This acquisition adds some high volume stations to our network. They are located in the Midlands and the South and all fit into our model by offering customers a great forecourt and shop offer.”

He continued: “All of these new stations are now BP branded and after a shop refit they will be offering the extensive and competitive range of Costcutter products.

“It’s good to end our first year of trading with some positive news. We will continue to look at opportunities for growth during 2013 while maintaining our ongoing investment on our forecourts and in our shops.”

A new management team took over at MFG in December 2011 after it was bought from its previous directors, and in October the company announced that it had signed a shop supply deal with Costcutter and would be converting its entire estate to Costcutter branding by the end of March.
