Essar welcomes six new sites

Essar currently has 29 sites operating under the Essar brand including Ablewell in Walsall. The company first entered the UK retail market in November 2015 with a site at Coalville, Leicestershire
Essar Oil (UK), which owns and operates the Stanlow Refinery, welcomed six new sites in the Midlands recently as part of its growing UK retail network.  
Five of the stations were opened on Thursday 30th March.   Operated by the Top 50 indie group Javid Iqbal, they are located in Staffordshire and Derbyshire and were previously with the Esso brand. The following day, a sixth new station was commissioned in the West Midlands. The site, formerly branded Harvest Energy, is operated by group dealer Sailesh Parekh.
These openings bring the total number of Essar sites in the UK to 29. Three of the new sites – Mossfield, Endon and Longton – are situated in Stoke-on-Trent.
The other three sites – Rockbay, Hatton and Ablewell – are located in the Buxton, Derby and Walsall areas respectively.
Essar Oil UK Chief commercial officer, SB Prasad, said: “We are delighted with the addition of these six stations to the Essar fold. The openings underline the acceptance of Essar’s offering and continued healthy growth of our brand in the UK retail market.”
