Applegreen has bought a Birmingham forecourt, bringing the number of sites it owns in the UK to 75.

The Irish forecourt operator’s acquisition of Circle Garage on Kingstanding Road was overseen by business property adviser Christie & Co.

“We’re pleased to have completed on our latest site acquisition through Christie & Co, showing our continued appetite for the growth of our business,” said Applegreen managing director John Diviney.

“We continue to be keen to expand by adding leasehold and freehold sites to our portfolio throughout the UK.”

The site was bought from independent operator Jon Nathwani, who said he wished to retire.

“We are pleased to have assisted Applegreen with yet another acquisition in the Midlands where we’re seeing continued demand from a range of operators,” said Christie & Co business agent David Branch.

“We wish both parties all the best with their future plans.”
