Our story began in 1956

Milestones

 

1956 – Filgo founded by Philippe Gosselin

Founding of the company by Mr. Philippe Gosselin. At that time, the company delivered heating oil, gas and lubricants. The association with Shell began at this point and has continued to this day.


1958 – Founding of Sonic by COOP

La Coop fédérée enters the oil business, prompted by a need expressed by farmers. They immediately reach agreements with the UCC (Union Catholique des Cultivateurs) and their federations, encouraging their members to buy oil from La Coop fédérée. An increasing number of local cooperatives become retailers.


1970 – First service station opens

In the early 1970s, La Coop fédérée adopted a policy encouraging the opening of service stations, catering to rural populations. By 1974, we had 75 service stations.


1999 – Launch of the Super Soir corporate convenience store network

The Super Soir brand was created in the early 1990s. During this time, we leased a few sites to operators. Beginning in 1999, we began operating our corporate network.
