Welsh retailer invests £100,000 in revelopment of site
23 August, 2019
Llandeilo Service Station

A service station in the market town Llandeilo in Carmarthenshire has reopened after a £100,000 redevelopment, including rebranding as a Murco forecourt.

The owner of Llandeilo Service Station, Sithamparappillai Paramesvaran (known locally as Appan) closed the site for five months to totally redevelop the forecourt and shop.

He said: “A very competitive fuel supply deal from Murco was extremely helpful in enabling me to release cash that I could use in the station’s redevelopment.

“Murco offer a very professional, yet personal approach to business and their ongoing support to me and my business is very welcome.

“Since reopening, I’ve got a very attractive station with increasing fuel volumes and the town has got back a valuable local resource.”

When a major car manufacturer like Ford predicts that sales of its electrified cars will outnumber petrol and diesel models by 2022, does that ring alarm bells about the possible speed of change for forecourts?
