Gulf Oil International has signed a long-term brand use license agreement with the Canadian XTR Energy Company Limited. The agreement was signed by Gulf Oil Vice President International, Frank Rutten (left in linked image) and XTR President, Ken Wootton (right in linked image) at the recent Le Mans 24 Hour race, and the partnership means the return of Gulf branded service stations to Canada, after an absence of 30 years.
Gulf Oil International Business Development Manager, Paul Stannard, comments. “XTR, under the guidance of its President, Ken Wootton, has all the experience required to undertake the task of rolling out the Gulf network across Canada over the next few years and once again bring the familiar Orange Disc Gulf logo back to the highways of Canada.
“Gulf service stations are already present in 20 countries and Gulf Oil International is committed to growing networks in as many countries as possible throughout the world. Therefore, the new entry in Canada is another step towards achieving this target.”
