Petrol filling station group snapped up by expanding operator

A petrol filling station business with 17 sites across the Midlands, Home Counties and South West of England has been snapped up by Ascona Group.

Cornwall Garage Group was established by John Murray in the early 1960s and comprises fourteen freehold and three leasehold sites.

The group has been purchased by Ascona Group which itself has rapidly expanded over the last two years. This acquisition takes them to 37 operational sites and moves the group into the top ten independent fuel retailers in the UK.
