History of the brand

Texaco was founded in 1902 in Beaumont, Texas. It was initially known as The Texas Company. The name changed to Texaco when a salesman saw the abbreviation in a telegram.

In 1903, the company used Texaco star for the first time after a 19-year old worker at one of its refineries suggested that the company should embrace the five-star symbol. The green ‘T’ was added later, probably something the Italian picked from the Italian flag. The company changed over time and came up with new brands like Havoline Oil.
