Congratulations to Longstanding Chamber Members

AmCham Taiwan came into being 70 years ago this month upon completion of official registration with the government. Of the five founding company members, only one – the Socony-Vacuum Oil Co. – continues to maintain a presence in the Chamber through its successor company ExxonMobil. The history of both the Exxon and Mobil precursors of the company formed by their merger in 1999 can be traced back to Socony-Vacuum, which itself was an offshoot of the Standard Oil Co. founded by John D. Rockefeller.

AmCham’s records don’t go back far enough to establish the date of entry into the organization of other early members. But the office does have a copy of a membership roster from 1986 – 35 years ago or the midpoint in the Chamber’s history to date.
