WELLESLEY HILLS, Mass. -- Gulf Oil is ramping up its brand rollout in the Southeast with several new supply agreements.
Six fuel marketers have recently signed on with Gulf supply sites throughout the Southeast and East Coast. They are Tennessee-based Calloway Oil; Cary Oil Co. and Sampson Bladen Oil of North Carolina; Hinson Oil Co. in Florida; Alabama’s Home Oil Co.; and Georgia-based PetroSouth Inc.
"Gulf is a partner that truly understands the impact a fresh new image and brand advertising can have on motorists and we look forward to expanding our relationship," said Tommy Hunt, president of Calloway Oil, Maryville, Tenn., which has more than 20 E-Z Stop stores in East Tennessee.

"Our team is focused on providing profitability and growth to our business partners and we are passionate about the future and this caliber of customers who want to grow with us," said Meredith L. Sadlowski, senior vice president of branded sales and marketing for Gulf Oil, Wellesley Hills, Mass.
