Topaz announce opening of two new service stations, creating over 300 jobs

11 Nov 2014

110 new full time jobs will be created between the two stations.

200 additional jobs involved in construction phase.

Topaz, Ireland’s largest convenience and fuel retailer has announced that it will create 110 new jobs between two major new service stations opening in North Dublin and Co. Laois in January next. 

The two stations are being developed at a cost of €10 million.  In addition to the full time jobs being created, an additional 200 people are employed on the development of the sites which will include service stations, restaurants and shops. 

One of the stations is located at Junction 3, adjacent to where the M50 meets the M1 at Clonshaugh in North County Dublin while the other is at Junction 3 on the Dublin Cork [M8] motorway near Ballacolla in County Laois. Both stations will open in January next.

Paul Candon, Marketing and Corporate Services Director at Topaz said the new sites heralded a period of significant investment by the company and further job creation; “Topaz is in job creation and expansion mode and we are constantly looking at sites with good potential – particularly near motorways. Our award winning sites at Dublin Airport and Cashel have been extremely successful and we expect these new sites to be likewise.  We are actively looking for new sites and locations across the country."

“These new sites will provide services to approximately 50,000 motorists using the two motorways each day.  They will also raise the bar in terms of the services available to customers and will include a shop, barista coffee, hot food to go, a cafe, wi-fi internet access, EV charger, toilets, car wash, parking and truck fuelling as well as a quick serve restaurant” Mr Candon said.
