NEW SERVICE STATION TO CREATE 30 JOBS
Construction has started on the new Amber Petroleum service station at the Dublin Road, Fermoy, which is expected to provide up to 30 jobs. The Fermoy based company is to invest €3 million in the development of a new service station conveniently located on the Dublin Road, containing a cafe, food hall, and car washing/valeting facilities.
As well as fuel, cafe and shop services, the site will incorporate a 24 hour multi-bay car wash and 24 hour commercial traffic fuel facility. Showering facilities are also to be provided for commercial drivers. It is hoped that the new service station will provide up to 30 new full and part-time positions when completed and up to 80 jobs during the construction phase.
Liam Fitzgerald, proprietor of Amber Petroleum, said, “We are going to be providing a genuine option for people looking for cheaper petrol and diesel in Fermoy, as we do on our other 16 sites located across Munster. Our philosophy, as a company, is to always provide excellent value for our customers and reliable employment for our staff.”
Amber Petroleum says that it plans to provide a competitive fuel pricing policy to the residents of Fermoy and motorists travelling to and from Cork and Dublin. The company claims that it is committed to drive down the cost of fuel and to provide customers with the most up-to-date facilities available.
It is also committed to creating new jobs in the locality, which would be welcome any time, but even more so during this recessionary period. The new outlet is due to be finished in early summer 2010.
The service station is just one of the three new developments in the town along with the fish shop, Moonfish, and Fermoy Education Centre, all straws in the wind that Fermoy is enjoying some long overdue good news.
