Award-winning dealer Nick Baker has sold his business to the owner of the Jet brand, Phillips 66, and the oil company says it is looking for acquisitions.

Mary Wolf, managing director UK marketing at Phillips 66, said: "We’ve been reviewing our UK strategy for the past 12 months and this announcement marks the first phase in the rollout of our plans. Over time we will look to purchase additional sites that will complement the existing Jet network and the regions we currently operate in."

The acquisition, which took effect on October 1, sees Phillips 66 take ownership of four sites in the north of England which were operated by Nick Baker, through his company NJB Services.

The acquired sites are Abbeyside Filling Station in Selby, Newton Park Service Station in Newton Aycliffe, Askern Service Station in Doncaster and Balby Road Filling Station, also in Doncaster.

The agreement also sees Phillips 66 take over the operation of Refinery Filling Station, a Phillips 66-owned forecourt in Immingham that Nick Baker has operated since 2005.
