February 20th, 2019 – Kingston, Jamaica. The Texaco brand is celebrating 100 years in Jamaica this year, under the axiom: Quality, Innovation, Excellence, Reliability and Service.
To kick-start the celebrations, the company held a church service at the Webster Memorial United Church in Kingston on Sunday, February 10th, where it donated $100,000 to the Church’s Educational Assistance Program. Reverend Paul DaCosta Pinto, in a lively address to the congregation, delivered a sermon entitled Faith Prints, and urged attendees to abandon the idea of self, status, and strategy in place of putting our faith in God.
The church service was followed by a press launch at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, which took place the following day Tuesday, February 19th.
Speaking at the launch, President of the Jamaica Gasoline Retailers Association (JGRA), Gregory Chung, reminded the audience of popular Texaco slogans, such as “trust your car to the man with the star,” and spoke of the brand’s close relationship with its staff and retailers.
Alphie Mullings-Aiken, President of Junior Achievement Jamaica referred to the company’s commitment to the wider community, citing its role as a founding partner of Biztown as one example.
Newly appointed Energy, Science and Technology Minister, the Honorable Fayval Williams, thanked the company for its commitment to meeting the needs of a demanding clientele and reiterated the petroleum industry’s role as a significant contributor to growth and investment in Jamaica, and its tremendous prospects for the future.
CEO of the Texaco Jamaica, Mauricio Pulido, spoke of the company’s investment in the quality of its fuel and the development of its additives, including the popular Techron, and its continued commitment to providing high-quality service to its customers.
The celebrations continue throughout the year, with a Gala scheduled for Thursday, May 9th in Kingston, and a very special marketing promo set to run from June to September, in which customers will be able to win fantastic prizes!
GB Energy looks forward to the next 100 years of continuous presence in Jamaica under the highest standards of operations, safety, health, and the environment while contributing to the development of the nation.
