Who is Caltex

Caltex has been fuelling motorists and businesses in New Zealand since 1936. These days, New Zealand’s Caltex brand is operated by Z Energy Ltd under licence from Chevron International.

Our Journey

On 1 June 2016, Chevron New Zealand, who operated the Caltex brand in New Zealand, was acquired by Z Energy Ltd, marking the growth of the country’s only Kiwi transport fuel company. Z Energy currently operates the Caltex network in New Zealand using the brand under licence from Chevron International.

At Caltex, we have achieved many breakthroughs in our products and services over our 80 years of operation. We take pride in continuing to deliver world class fuels and lubricants to our customers across the country.

Today, there are more than 140 Caltex service stations and 70 truck stops around New Zealand. A diverse and highly motivated workforce is dedicated to delivering exceptional customer service, day in, day out – wherever you go.

Our Brand

At Caltex, we are all about enjoying the journey – giving Kiwis everything they need to make each journey a little better, easier or more memorable. From the Christmas road trip to the daily drive, we believe every journey is worth enjoying – and worth improving – so we never stop finding new ways to do just that.

  • Locally operated service stations

Our network of service stations are all operated by independent retailers who take pride in offering a fast, friendly, locally focused customer experience, plus great everyday fuel savings through Pumped. Our retailers care about getting you to wherever you’re going and ensuring you’ll keep coming back.

  • Quality fuels and lubricants

Refuelling with our Caltex with Techron® and Caltex Diesel with Techron D fuels and our lubricant products Delo® and Havoline®, gives you peace of mind that you’ve filled up with quality, so you can leave Caltex energised, prepped and ready to hit the road again.

  • Convenient commercial facilities

Our expansive network of truck stops and lubricant distributor stores takes the hassle out of refuelling and provides our commercial transport customers with the reliability and ef­ficiency they need to keep their wheels of industry turning.

  • Simplified fleet management

As well as access to one of the largest fuel networks in the country, our business and commercial transport customers enjoy simplified paperwork and easy online management with their Caltex StarCard accounts, so they can spend more time driving their business than running it.


We’ve been fuelling Kiwis’ journeys for nearly 80 years, so whether our customers are managing a fleet or just a family budget, we’re here to make sure that wherever they’re going, they get there with a smile.
