Essar opens fourth UK retail site

This month Essar Oil (UK) opened its fourth UK retail site at Sale in Cheshire.

The station, which has been operated by the Akhtar family for the past five years, is located in a residential locality with good potential for growth.

“We have had lots of interest from dealers who like the Essar brand and the fresh, straightforward approach we have brought to the UK market,” commented SB Prasad, chief commercial officer, retail at Essar Oil UK.

Essar plans to add more stations to its UK network in the coming months.

Essar entered the sector in November 2015 with its first branded site at Coalville, Leicestershire and subsequently unveiled stations at Walkden, Manchester and Middleton, Lancashire.
