January 31, 2001 by Jeff Shepard

BP Solarex (Baltimore, MD) announced today that it will now be known as BP Solar (Linthicum, MD). This move comes in conjunction with BP Amoco's decision to form a single, global brand, under the new corporate brand name - BP.

BP stated it will combine the former British Petroleum, Amoco, ARCO, and Burmah Castrol to provide consistent, innovative ways of doing business. The company stated that the growth of BP's solar business is a key aspect of the company's commitment to go 'beyond petroleum'.
