Estate expansion for MFG

Jeremy Clarke, Motor Fuel Group

INDEPENDENT forecourt operator Motor Fuel Group (MGF) has further expanded it’s portfolio with the acquisition of seven operational sites and nine new to industry sites (NTI) from BP.

The acquisition comes as part of a wider agreement between the two businesses, which includes fuel supply for 100 sites.

Jeremy Clarke, chief operating officer at MFG said: “We are particularly delighted with this transaction given the quality of the operational assets and geographical spread of the NTI sites.

“It is a great opportunity for us to apply our proven operating model, improve the shop offering for our customers, introduce a ‘food to go’ option where appropriate and improve the valeting offer. We will also be looking to install a number of high power EV chargers at each location.

“Six of the operating stations are in Scotland and one is located in Surrey. The NTI sites are spread throughout England and Scotland.”

Andy Allen, BP’s UK sales manager, said: “BP is delighted to have secured this transaction as part of a broader opportunity to further strengthen the long-standing relationship between BP and MFG.”
