Did you know? The birth of The Texas Company (aka Texaco) in Beaumont, Texas in 1901 coincided with the discovery of oil in Spindletop, in southeast Texas. The company rapidly gained a foothold as a major international supplier of products such as automotive gasoline, kerosene and lubricants such as the top-selling diesel lubricant, Ursa. As a result of rapidly growing automobile sales, The Texas Co. launched an explosive expansion into new global markets. The Texas Company was the first oil company to offer their products and services in all 48 U.S. states! In 1959, the company officially changed its name and became Texaco Inc. In 2001, Texaco Inc. merged with Chevron to become the second largest United States based energy corporation! Texaco memorabilia still remains high on the collector’s list of desirable petroliana.
