As a global leader in corporate payments solutions, we simplify system complexities across continents and industries.
Founded as a family business in 1895, WEX was originally known as A.R. Wright, and focused on coal and heating oil. In the early 1980s, we developed the concept of “unattended fueling,” and updated the name to Wright Express in 1983. Our customers and partners shortened that name and began referring to us as WEX, so we embraced it and redesigned our logo — the “e” with a sharp point symbolizes the company’s pointed precision in handling payment systems.
Now a global leader in the space, WEX simplifies system complexities across continents and industries. With over 2,700 associates in the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Australia, we give our customers greater control over their business, resulting in smarter decisions, lower operating costs, higher efficiency and greater customer satisfaction. Our growth is fueled by our passion for continuous innovation, and providing a level of service unparalleled in our industry.
