Ampol is back at the forecourt, with the first rebranded stores officially having opened in Sydney.
The stores, in Concord and Granville are the first to be revitalised under the company’s two-year transition back to Ampol branding, which will see 24 stores across Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane rebranded by the end of the year. Nationally, more than 1,900 sites will be updated.
The Concord store is also one of the Foodary flagship stores and provides Amplify premium fuels and a modern convenience store. Ampol said it was important for the first rebranded stores to be in Sydney, which is where the Australian Motorists Petrol company, now known as Ampol, was first founded in 1936 and where its first retail site, Mosman, opened in 1952. It’s also where the company received its first oil delivery, which arrives at its terminal and storage facility at White Bay on Sydney Harbour in 1937.
Ampol’s Managing Director and CEO Matthew Halliday said the company had a strong history in Australia and he looked forward to rolling out the new branding to forecourts across Australia, adding these stores were an exciting new step for Ampol’s future.
“Ampol remains a proud Australian company and customers can expect the same great customer service and high-quality products when they step into these stores, underpinned by our market-leading infrastructure and networks and commitment to playing a positive role in local economies and communities,” Mr Halliday said.
“These first Ampol stores also bring to life our drive to be world-class in everything we do and celebrate the best of our convenience offering through the Foodary and our unparalleled experience with premium fuels through our Amplify premium fuels range.”
