Gulf Oil announced a new branded partnership agreement with R&R Takhar Oil Co. returning the motor fuel brand to major Ohio cities for the first time in two decades.
R&R Takhar Oil Co., based in the greater-Dayton, Ohio area, plans to convert five retail gas stations in its service area to the Gulf brand, starting with one of its Columbus, Ohio locations. Other Ohio cities that expect to expand the Gulf brand include Dayton, Eaton, Medina and Canton.
“The Gulf brand brings additional value to our company,” said Randy Singh Takhar, co-owner of R&R Takhar Oil Co. “Gulf has a great image, is a trusted company and rekindles a sense of nostalgia for many people. We know that customers will feel great about filling up their tanks with Gulf gasoline.”
The Ohio stations are some of the most recent ones to welcome back the brand as it moves on with its global expansion. The company also wants to expand throughout the Michigan and Great Lakes Region.
“Randy Singh and Paul Takhar founded their company with the tenet that the most important part of any business is integrity and honesty,” said Rick Dery, Gulf Oil vice president and chief of sales and marketing officer. “We are proud to share those values with Randy and Paul, and to have them as our partners as we expand the Gulf brand in Ohio.”
