The higger we grow the smaller we get!
1* Today, Union Oil Company does an annual
business of over $250 million. This seems like a
whale of a lot of business when you consider that
back in 1910 (when we were 20 years old) we did
an annual business of $12 million.
2« But back in 1910 there were only 468,500 cars
in the U. S. and the average American used only
one quart of petroleum products a day. Today
there are over 44 million cars in the U. S. and the
average American uses 1 9/10 gallons of petro
leum products every day.
3* To supply this steadily increasing demand fo
petroleum products, long-established companies
had to expand and many new companies have
entered the field. As a result, competition has in
creased. In 1951 there were 414 times as many oil
companies in the U. S. as there were in 1910 — all
in competition for your business.
4. Today we are among the nation’s 100 largest
corporations and are 20 times as big as we were in
1910. But here’s the important point: 42 years ago
we did about 23% of the oil business in the 5 west
ern states-our major marketing area. Today, in
spite of our growth, we do only 13% of the oil
business in the 5 western states!
5* In view of all this, it seems rather strange to
hear so much talk about biyncss. Of course, indi
vidual oil companies are bigger. They have to be
bigger to serve the bigger need. Hut the vast ma
jority aren’t as big in proportion to the total busi
ness as they were 42 years ago. In fact, they are
getting “smaller” all the lime.
