Gulf Oil has announced its continued growth in Virginia by signing a branded distributor partnership with Anderson Oil Company.
Anderson Oil will begin work immediately, rebranding more than two dozen motor fuel outlets in the Greater Fredericksburg and Richmond areas from Chevron, Texaco and Pure to the new Gulf “Sunrise” image. This is the first time since 1986 that a Gulf Oil branded gas station will operate there.
“My family has fond memories of the Gulf brand,” said Mark Anderson, president/owner of Anderson Oil Company. “Gulf is a company that is dedicated to value and loyalty, and we are excited to rejoin the family.”
“One of the most gratifying elements of Gulf’s geographic expansion continues to be learning about the long history and legacy that Gulf shared with many of our re-established branded partners,” said Gulf Oil Senior Vice President and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Rick Dery.
He added, “I continue to be humbled by the incredible reception that we receive by companies like Anderson Oil. Moreover, I am delighted to announce that since January 12, 2010 (the date when the title and rights to the brand were acquired from Chevron) Gulf has proudly added over 300 new branded sites to the Gulf family.”
Gulf Oil President and Chief Operating Officer Ron Sabia said he is pleased with the results to date. “I am extremely proud of both our field team and our office support team to have accomplished so much in a short amount of time.”
“Our continued growth in the Old Dominion state reinforces Gulf’s long-term commitment to the Mid-Atlantic region,” Sabia said. “With more than 5 million drivers in Virginia, we remain committed to offering the best high-quality service to the driving public and strive to be the premium gasoline retailer nationwide.”
