The Vitol Group

Privately owned, Vitol is the largest company you’ve never heard of with an annual turnover of USD $303bn.

Privately owned, Vitol is the largest company you’ve never heard of. Founded in Rotterdam in 1966, they have over 40 offices worldwide, trade over six million barrels of crude oil and products every day, and a turnover of USD $303bn.

Vitol is the 8th largest business by revenue in the world and a major global player in chemicals, coal, aviation fuel, gas oil, LPG, LNG, power and carbon. We designed, wrote and produced their annual report and corporate brochure, which is also used as their principal marketing tool.

As a private business, Vitol’s corporate brochure also effectively serves as the Company’s report and accounts, so we had to strike a balance between communicating a compelling marketing message and presenting financial data.

Our in-depth understanding of the energy sector proved invaluable in finding the right design language and communicating the processes and motivations of a highly complex business with clarity.

As a team, we’ve delivered annual reports and accounts (ARA) for many companies, including FTSE 250 firms. We have an in-depth knowledge of the process, access to the latest (secure) collaboration and review tools, as well as ISO 27001 accredited print suppliers.
