Twenty new jobs are to be created with the expansion of a new service station at Eglinton, it’s been announced.

Leading fuel and convenience retailer Maxol has confirmed plans to open a new service station on the Clooney Road in Eglinton. This expansion represents an investment of about £2 million and will create more than 20 new jobs.

Maxol Eglinton will boast a SPAR convenience store within the forecourt and will also see the introduction into Northern Ireland of Moreish, Maxol’s new café/deli with a range of speciality sandwiches, hot and cold meals, freshly ground coffee and a range of teas. The Moreish deli, located within the Maxol SPAR Forecourt store, will include a contemporary seating area, state-of-the-art washrooms as well as complimentary WiFi.

Commenting on the new service station in Eglinton, Brian Donaldson, Maxol Group Chief Operating Officer said,

“We have been seeking a prime location in the North West for some time so when this opportunity on the Clooney Road presented itself, it was the perfect fit for our new forecourt concept.

“We’re delighted to be able to create more than 20 new jobs including shop sales assistants and deli sales positions. We are also looking for a licensee for Eglinton, which is a great opportunity for someone who is keen to start their own business.”

Maxol’s new service station in Eglinton which is due to open in December 2014 will bring the number of Maxol stations in Northern Ireland to 105 and the total throughout Ireland to 233. Over the last 18 months Maxol has invested around £40m in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland with the opening of 20 new service stations and the rollout out of its new forecourt image at 150 stations.
