Founded in 1924 by K. C. Irving, Irving Oil is a family-owned and privately held regional energy processing, transporting, and marketing company headquartered in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, with marketing operations in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, United States.
Irving Oil has more than 7,000 employees and 700 fueling locations, operations from 13 marine terminals, and a delivery fleet of tractor-trailers. Its wholesale, commercial, and retail customers are located in Eastern Canada, Quebec, and New England.
The alliance was founded with a long-term view and a trust that over time, people would develop, efficiencies would be gained, and lower-cost projects would be the norm. Over the years, the alliance has evolved into an exclusively local team that is able to work share larger projects to other offices.
The team has an ownership of the work, blurring the lines between Fluor and Irving. It is often difficult to pick out the Fluor employees in a room.
