Certas Energy adds two more West Wales fillings stations to its growing company portfolio with the acquisition of Square & Compass and Letterson Filling Stations which currently employs 20 people, both formerly owned by Roger and Anne Shackleton.

Former owners Roger and Anne Shackleton have operated the Pembrokeshire forecourt business for 22 years, its two Gulf-branded forecourts feature successful convenience stores and a combined fuel volume of 5.6ml.

Certas Energy's retail director, Richard Billington, said: “We are delighted to have concluded this deal, it’s a very good fit for our business as we continue to grow our company operates across the UK. We already have a strong Gulf presence within Pembrokeshire and these two flagship sites will complement our thriving and expanding dealer operation."

He further adds, “Anne and Roger have put their heart and soul into their business and its standing within the locality is a testament to their hard work and that of a very talented team, whom we look forward to working with. We’ll bring the sites into harmony with the rest of our company-owned operation, investing in the latest back-office technology and on-site facilities to future proof the business. We will also remain true to the values established by the Shackleton to be at the heart of the local community.”

It is said that the purchase will increase the portfolio Certas Energy to 35 sites.
