Certas buys six forecourts in Wales

Fuel distributor Certas Energy has bought six forecourts from South Wales-based David Taylor Filling Stations as it continues to grow its Gulf network across the UK.

The forecourts are located in Brecon, Pontypool, Ebbw Vale, Tredegar, Treharris and Tonyrefail and have a combined fuel throughput of 14 million litres. Richard Billington, retail director of Certas Energy, said: “David Taylor Filling Stations presents Certas Energy with a well-run business and an experienced team of people with a fantastic community-orientated ethos.

“It’s a very good fit for our business and we are delighted to have now completed the acquisition. A strong company owned network is an ideal complement for our thriving dealer operation.” The acquisition follows the recent purchase of two Petromex sites in Lancashire.
