Our long history began years ago when the all-Australian oil importer Ampol, was listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in the late 1940s. Both Caltex and Ampol opened refineries in the 1950s and 1960s, and the two companies competed fiercely in the service station arena and oil product marketing industry. As time went on, Ampol acquired Total and Caltex went on to acquire Golden Fleece.
Despite these developments, Caltex and Ampol were still relatively small. Eventually, their 1995 merger helped the company become the largest refiner-marketer in Australia. At Caltex, we keep more than one third of Australians on the move every day, whether it’s by land, sea or air.
This important job is made a lot easier because we’re managed right here in Australia and that’s good news if you’re a person who likes to get things done and make a real difference.
