Bernard Looney discusses the excellent business opportunity – and culture fit – that Thorntons brings to bp’s Mobility & convenience business.
Much of our business is done under the look and feel of our main global brand. It represents both what we do and what we aspire to do as an organization.
We acquired Castrol, a global lubricants brand, in 2002 and continue to maintain its commitment to specialization, innovation and collaboration.
In 2021, we took full ownership of Thorntons, a Kentucky-based fuel and convenience store, marking our re-entry into fully owned and operated stores in the US.
In October 2017, we announced the reintroduction of our long-standing Amoco brand to the US fuel retail sector – around a century after the first Amoco service station opened in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Across five states on the US’s pacific coast – from southern California to north Oregon – ampm is the highway retail-and-rest brand of choice for motorists.
