You could say that today's blog is featuring an underdog-- let's shine the spotlight on a little-known oil company that has not been available in the United States until recent years.
The JX Nippon Oil & Energy Co. is a Japanese petroleum company established in 1888. The name "Eneos" was coined from the words "Energy" and "Neos," which means "New" in Greek. Their logo represents reliability and continuity with the globe in the center, and the spiral spreading outward symbolizes creativity and innovation.
In 1999, the company merged with the well-known Mitsubishi Oil. The company was called Nippon Mitsubishi Oil until 2002 when they adopted their present name.
Nippon Oil & Energy's businesses include the exploration, importation, and refining of crude oil; the manufacture and sale of petroleum products, including fuels and lubricants; and other energy-related activities. Eneos products use advanced additive and base oil technology formulated after years of research with Japanese automotive manufacturers. These products provide exceptional performance, power, and protection for a wide variety of applications including race cars, motorcycles, and street automobiles.
Nippon products are sold under the brand name ENEOS, which is also the name used for the service stations in Japan. It is the largest oil company in Japan, and in recent years has expanded its operations to other countries. Central Oil & Supply offers packaged lubricant products from the company.
