Mobil began as Socony, or the Standard Oil Company of New York, in 1911 and trademarked the name Mobiloil in 1920. Socony joined Vacuum Oil in 1931 to create Socony-Vacuum. The company changed its name to the Socony Mobil Oil Company in 1955. In 1966, Socony Mobil Oil Company became simply, Mobil Oil Company. In 1999, Mobil Oil Company merged with Exxon Corporation to form ExxonMobil Corporation, one of the world’s largest oil and gas corporations.
