The Beginning

In 1969, Ivan Hollows became an Esso fuel distributor in the town of Wandoan in Queensland marking the start of a series of business activities that led to the Pacific Petroleum Group in 1994.

First Expansion

After five years in Wandoan, Ivan took over a retail outlet in Ashgrove. He then expanded to New South Wales, acquiring the Esso distributorship in Lismore and later in Coffs Harbour and Grafton.

Becoming Pacific Petroleum

When Mobil bought Esso’s retail network in 1990, it led to the formation of new company owned 50/50 by Hollows and Mobil Oil Australia. The company today is known as Pacific Petroleum.

Return to Hollows

In 2005, after the global merger between Exxon and Mobil, the Hollows family purchased Mobil’s 50% interest in Pacific Petroleum to gain full ownership of the company.

Maintaining Relationships

Pacific Petroleum has proudly continued its relationship with ExxonMobil. In 2007, the company expanded its offerings by becoming an authorised importer & distributor of Phillips 66.

Experience & Expertise

Pacific Petroleum has many long-term employees who have been with the company for more than 20 years. The experience and expertise helped the company to quickly react to opportunities, as well as problem-solving and developing innovative solutions.

Continued Growth

2013 marked the addition of Shell lubricants and the company’s expansion to Mackay and Toowoomba. Expansion continued to Newcastle in 2014 and Melbourne in 2015.
