One company had the oil, the other had the markets. On June 30, 1936, California Texas Oil Co., Ltd. (Caltex) is created as a joint and equal venture between Standard Oil Co. (Socal, later Chevron) of California and The Texas Co. (Texaco). The Texaco Star is already a hallmark of quality, service and reliability. Therefore, the Caltex logo – comprising a red star intersected by the word “CALTEX” in black letters – is only a subtle departure from the Texaco logo of that time.
We also add fuel oil and diesel fuel bulk terminals in Singapore, Colombo, Shanghai, Suez, Hong Kong and Durban, and open or renovate hundreds of service stations.
