The Atlantic Union Oil Company came to Australia in 1927 and opened two terminals - one at Balmain (NSW) and one at Spotswood (Victoria). Atlantic Union’s first product, “Union Motor Spirit” was endorsed by pioneer Australian aviator Charles Kingsford-Smith who used their products on all his famous flights. Kingsford-Smith helped to rapidly elevate the company from an unknown to a strong player in the highly competitive petroleum market. In 1933, the Atlantic Union Oil Company was taken over by Standard Oil (New Jersey), later to become Exxon. Ref: Exxon/Mobil.
