The Maxol Group (www.maxol.ie) is Ireland's leading family-owned oil company. Our business, which was established in Ireland in 1920 by William McMullan, markets a comprehensive range of oil and petroleum products to all sectors of the Irish Market, through our Retail, Lubricants and Fuelcard divisions and continues to grow today under the ownership of the McMullan family.
"The Maxol Group is a leading Irish, family owned, business engaged in fuel marketing since 1919. The Maxol brand is synonymous with the creation of long-term value for all stakeholders and building profitable business throughout the island of Ireland. We pride ourselves on our relationships with our business partners and customers, and our aim is to trade in a profitable and responsible manner, thus, generating opportunities for everyone associated with our business."
Today, with our network of service stations and lubricants distributors, we have one of the strongest 32 county All-Ireland networks in the industry. Of the 230 plus Maxol branded service stations in our network, Maxol itself also owns 105 service stations. However, we don't operate these ourselves but prefer to typically license the premises to locally based business men and women, who are experienced in retailing and connected with the local community. This is Maxol's Licensee model and one which has served our business well for many years. We are proud of the position our licensees and our brand holds in all our communities and you can find out more about Licensee opportunities here.
Circa 125 station in the Maxol network are owned by private individuals who have selected Maxol as their chosen brand and fuel supplier. Our Retail Area Managers always welcome the opportunity to speak with service station owners about how joining Maxol can help benefit their business.
While Maxol service stations are instantly recognisable by our strong blue and yellow corporate identity, we have adopted different convenience store brands for our company-owned stations for Northern and Southern Ireland. We have partnered with SPAR in Northern Ireland and MACE in Southern Ireland. The SPAR and MACE franchises are held by the Henderson Group and BWG Foods respectively. You can see images of the different Maxol service stations in our Service Station Finder.
