The Gulf brand is one of the most famous brands in the Oil and Lubricants industry  and is a proud member of Hinduja Group.

Gulf Oil International is one of the largest independent downstream lubricants companies in the world with sales made in over 100 countries. It owns and operates blending plants in Argentina, China, India, Philippines, and the United Arab Emirates.


Gulf products are also manufactured, under license, in several other countries via third party blending plants using Gulf formulations. The most visible presence the brand has is through its ever-growing number of Gulf branded petrol stations. Gulf is always looking for new partners to take the brand into new territories and new product markets.

The Gulf brand and the Gulf racing colours go hand in hand with motor racing. The light blue and orange racing colours of the Gulf brand that are loved by motorsport enthusiasts the world over, celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2017. Gulf is synonymous with sports and its sponsorship activities further demonstrate the quality, performance and power of the products, delivering results in the greatest tests of endurance.


Gulf has many famous motor racing victories to its name from all corners of the world. In 2008, Gulf first sponsored the Aston Martin Racing team. The team, that year (2008) secured the GT1 Category at the Le Mans 24 Hours race, 40 years after Gulf's first outright win. The team won the 2009 Le Mans Series for both the drivers and the team. In 2011, at the Laguna Seca round of the American Le Mans series, Gulf and Aston Martin Racing returned to winning ways, running almost faultlessly enroute to victory. The car took a podium place at the final round of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup, the ‘Petit Le Mans’. In 2013, the season saw Aston Martin Racing continue in its winning ways in the World Endurance Championship, in both the GTE Pro and GTE Categories.

Gulf is proud to be an Official Partner of the world's number 1 football team, Manchester United. This is a ground-breaking partnership initiative for the sport, in what is an initial three and a half year deal with the most famous of English Premier League Clubs.

Gulf has two partner teams in the World Superbike Championship series, the first with the Milwaukee Aprilia team and the second with the Althea BMW team. Gulf also sponsors Gulf Racing, competing in the World Endurance Championships in the Porsche 911 RSR.

Gulf Oil Marine
Gulf also has a separate venture, Gulf Oil Marine. Based in Hong Kong, Gulf Oil Marine specializes in the delivery of bulk marine lubricants for ocean going vessels. The company began operations in 2009 and already boasts one of the widest port supply networks in the industry with more than 1,000 seaports worldwide.

Gulf Oil Marine's plans include a continued focus on the Far East markets for additional opportunities and coverage, together with further expansion in the Middle East and onwards into Africa. The aim is for Gulf Oil Marine to be firmly established in the top ten lubricant brands globally, by the end of 2020.
