South African bunker trading firm, Amoil Ltd on Tuesday (3 November) revealed the company’s new rebranding and visual identity today – the first major brand change in the company’s history after 36 years of operations.
According to Managing Director Alexandros Margaritis, the visual transformation is essential as part of the company’s evolution after the events of 2020.
“The world in 2020 looks different, and it was the right time to give Amoil a new look for this new world. By evolving the Amoil brand, we are conveying our capabilities in adapting to and prospering in any bunker scenario,” said Margaritis.
Amoil was first established in Durban in 1984 as the first independent bunker trader and supply service in South Africa. Since then, the company stated it has secured itself as a bunker expert in the African continent and globally.
