***Funding package from HSBC supports redevelopment of Preston service station***
***Investment will lead to the creation of up to 30 new jobs***
A West Yorkshire-based retailer is excited to announce the re-opening of a new service station, creating up to 30 new local jobs, with support from a seven-figure funding package from HSBC.
The Brookfield Group, established in 1992, has comprehensively redeveloped its New Hall Lane Services in Preston. The Shell Services is located on one of the main arterial routes into Preston city centre and it now includes a large convenience store as well as an in-store Greggs bakery and car valeting facilities. It is also planning to install two electric charging points.
The Brookfield group has extensive expertise in buying land and underperforming sites around the North of England to redevelop into state of the art modern service station facilities under the Shell & BP brand of fuels.
Aziz Patel, Development Partner, said: “The redevelopment of New Hall Lane Services has taken a great deal of effort from us and our professional team. The original facility was first built in the 1960s and the site required a complete overhaul to be up to the high standards we set ourselves. Thanks to the funding from HSBC, we are now incredibly proud to bring a state-of-the-art filling station and convenience store to the area.”
Mike Swift, HSBC’s Area Director for West and South Yorkshire, said: “Brookfield Property has a proven track record in building successful and profitable filling stations around the North of England. We’re excited to see the progress of the New Hall Lane Services and are delighted to support a project that can bring so many jobs to the Preston area.”
The deal was completed by HSBC’s David Logan, Corporate Director and Ash Khan, Corporate Bank Manager.
