Fuel services provider Top Oil, has officially opened its latest forecourt in Ballyvolane, County Cork. The new multi-million-euro investment will employ over 80 people, from the surrounding area in North Cork bringing a wide range of local amenities and providing an economic boost to the Cork area.
The new 3-acre site is located on the west side of Ballyhooly Road, close to the junction with the North Ring road, in Cork city and took just over eight months to complete. This forecourt is the latest location for Top Oil in Cork, and is evidence of the continued progress for Top Oil’s retail division Top Sirio. The new 24-hour forecourt at Ballyvolane offers its customers a wide variety of services.
Speaking at the launch, Gerard Boylan, Group Chief Executive, Top Oil, said; “We are delighted to launch the latest Top Oil forecourt in Cork. Top Oil is committed to investing in key locations across Ireland such as Ballyvolane, and providing high quality service to our retail and trade customers. This significant forecourt investment demonstrates our continued growth and commitment as a leading Irish fuel and home heating oil provider and we look forward to investing further in key locations across Ireland.”
Trevor O’Reilly, Chief Executive, Sirio, commented: “Our design partners have far exceeded our expectations when it comes to the finished product. Housed in a 5000sq ft art-deco style building, W&P Food Hall offers a unique setting in which to eat and relax. We offer in excess of 70 seats in a bright and fun setting. Wifi is freely available, with charging and USB points available throughout. In addition, our research told us our customers want better rest-room facilities. So, we decided to be brave and invest in what we believe is a much-overlooked experience. This will be one of our unique selling points in future, creating destinations of choice. This is our Revolution at Roadside.”
