Established in 1979 by Shanti Majithia, MPK is a leading independent operator of UK petrol stations and forecourts. BGF invested to support the acquisition of additional sites, alongside the refurbishment of existing sites to build out their retail offering.
The business acquired four petrol stations within the first 18 months of BGF’s investment, and appointed Keith Fleming, former senior non-executive chair at Blacks Leisure, Woolworths and B&Q, as NXC following an introduction from BGF.
MPK was acquired by Stratford Retail Group in 2018.
BGF’s funding helped us maintain momentum around our rollout strategy and scale-up our operations. In little over two years, the partnership has placed the business in a strong position for future growth. Paul Kershaw, CEO
