Gulf Oil International is a large and growing family of companies, united under the iconic orange disc which symbolises the Gulf brand.
Gulf oil is arguably one of the most evocative names in the oil industry - serving the needs of the motorist and of the industry for more than a century. During this time, as one of the largest downstream oil companies, it has always been at the forefront of customer service and innovation.
Gulf has maintained its family and community focus. More than a 100 years after its launch, the company remains committed to quality, innovation and attention to the needs of the markets it serves. These values remain at the core of everything Gulf's famous Orange Disc brand represents.
In recent years Gulf has become bigger and stronger. There are now dedicated Gulf operations in more than 70 countries around the world, and this number continues to increase.
The key to Gulf's advancement is the forging and nurturing of partnerships at all levels - with our affiliates, our suppliers and our customers alike. This has allowed Gulf to cultivate a wide product range, as well as develop retail operations in many countries throughout the world. Gulf has the strengths typical of major oil companies but can offer the personal attention so often lacking in such vast organisations.
Gulf Oil International's operating philosophy is rare among oil companies. It understands that local expertise are critical for identifying and seizing opportunities that exist in each separate operating country.
This allows each Gulf business to develop its' own business strategy to suit the specific demands of its local market, but with the support of a global brand.
Using its position as a household name, Gulf has forged partnerships with third-party experts to develop new cutting-edge products. Many of these affiliates have their own laboratories or access to such facilities, but Gulf operates its own research centre at the Silvassa plant in India, which fine-tunes, blends and tests its products.
Offering global customer satisfaction continues to be an intrinsic part of Gulf's worldwide philosophy.
