Our History: From 1984 to Today

Our history describes our evolution and how we grew into a leading energy company from several distinct origins. In 1984, Chairman Emeritus, Paul Stebbins, and CEO, Michael Kasbar, founded Trans-Tec, a marine fuel brokerage company.

In 1995, International Recovery Corporation acquired Trans-Tec. The move transformed the organization and the name was changed to World Fuel Services. Over the past two decades, we have continued to grow through organic expansion and a series of strategic acquisitions. It’s an evolution that continues today.

It’s an evolution that continues today, as in 2023 we changed our corporate name to World Kinect Corporation to better reflect our ongoing transformation into a more resilient, diversified energy and solutions provider.
