EXPLORE AMPOL'S HISTORY

Ampol Limited (ASX:ALD) is an independent Australian company and the nation’s leader in transport fuels.

We manage the country’s largest petrol and convenience network as well as refining, importing and marketing fuels and lubricants. We are backed by experience with a history spanning over 120 years, having grown to become the largest transport fuels company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange. 

In recent years we have expanded our national and international footprint to develop a reliable and adaptable supply chain extending from the regional hub of Singapore, where we operate our trading and shipping office, to the Australian end consumer, serving over 80,000 customers in markets such as defence, mining, aviation and over three million retail customers every week.

Our robust supply chain is underpinned by our market-leading infrastructure, including 19 terminals, five major pipelines, 89 depots, approximately 800 controlled retail sites, 2,000 associated sites and one refinery located in Lytton, Queensland. This network is supported by over 7,600 people across Australia and overseas. 

Launching off our Australian operations, we have presence in the New Zealand fuels market as owner of Gull New Zealand, which operates one of the largest independent import terminals in the country and a retail network. We also have a 20 per cent equity interest in Seaoil in the Philippines. These international operations are in addition to our trading and shipping offices in Singapore and the United States of America.

Ampol Limited, formerly Caltex Australia, returned to the iconic Australian name following shareholder approval on 14 May 2020. The national brand roll out across our retail network will begin in January 2021 and be completed by the end of 2022.
