Company History

Gilbarco Veeder-Root started out in the hands of Charles Gilbert and John Barker in 1865, when they created the "Springfield Gas Machine", a device that took crude oil and distilled it into steam to form a gas that was used to light buildings .

In the year 1910, Gilbert and Barker developed their first fuel dispenser for cars, which was their first approach to the oil market in which Gilbarco is still leader today.

In 1965 the company officially changed its name to "Gilbarco Inc.", as well as the location of its headquarters and production suppliers, to its present location in Greensboro, North Carolina in the United States.

The Gilbarco® brand and companies became part of Fortive Corporation in 2016, and then in 2020 became part of Vontier Corporation as a spin-off from Fortive.
