English Español USA: EG Group acquires 69 sites from Certified Oil

The UK player continues to increase its U.S. business by making acquisitions in various regions.

Last update:

Blackburn-based EG Group has signed a definitive agreement to acquire 69 Certified Oil convenience stores and gas stations operating in Kentucky, West Virginia and Ohio, reports CSP Daily News.  

“The connection the store teams have with the customers in the community and the locations of the stores are highly complementary to EG Group’s existing U.S. operation,” said Jay Erickson, president of EG America.

Certified Oil operates or supplies more than 140 locations in Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia. The company was founded in 1939 by Carlyle Baker. In 1998, his son-in-law, Peter Lacaillade, stepped up to lead the Certified Oil team following the sudden passing of Baker. It maintains its own proprietary “Certified” fuel brand as well as branding and distributing fuels for Marathon.

The acquisition continues to grow the business of EG Group, which now has over 4,700 fuel and convenience sites in Europe and North America, employing more than 28,500 people.
