Peter Vicary and his two sons Ben and Andrew founded Gulf Western Oil in 1988 for the sole purpose to design an oil specific to the Australian market.
Australia has embraced this concept and over the last 30 years Gulf Western has become a leader in their field. This has been achieved by embracing some of the leading programs in the lubricant market:
- API (American Petroleum Institute)
- ISO 9001 Quality Assurance Management System Certification
Gulf Western prides itself in only using the highest quality virgin base oils and the most technologically advanced API approved additive systems allowing the company to hold some of the highest OEM approvals in todays market.
From a small company blending lubricants for the local market, Gulf Western has grown into a multi million litre organisation with an extensive distributor network throughout all states and territories of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, New Caledonia, Tahiti, Vietnam, Tonga, Samoa, Kiribati, Christmas islands, PNG and the Pacific Rim.
The company remains fully Australian owned and operated by the Vicary family.
