Company History: Aral is a brand of automobile fuels and petrol stations, present in Germany and Luxembourg, but formerly used in most countries of Western and Central Europe. The company behind the brand name, Aral AG (previously Veba Öl AG), is owned by BP, but was established in 1898 as Westdeutsche Benzol-Verkaufs-Vereinigung GmbH. The Aral brand was introduced in 1924 and is a portmanteau of the German words "Aromaten" and "Aliphaten", alluding to the aromatic and aliphatic components found in gasoline, respectively.
On 15 July 2001 it was agreed that 51% of the stakes in Veba Öl AG would be acquired by Deutsche BP AG. Beginning 1 February 2002 the acquisition was completed. The Aral brand name was retained, and 650 BP stations in Germany were rebranded to Aral. 6 BP branded filling stations remained operational in Germany to protect the company's rights to the name, while elsewhere, as Poland and Austria, the Aral stations were switched to BP. In some countries the Aral national chains were sold. Aral's slogan is "Alles super".
