KPI Bridge Oil, a global trader and broker in marine fuels, marine lubricants and risk management products, has announced that KTB will become a member of the KPI Bridge Oil Group as of June 1, 2016.

Our experienced and professional team will benefit immensely from the increased capabilities and opportunities that comes with joining a strong global organization which has an extensive network of partners around the world and is renowned for its efficient and people focused organization.”

We are honored to welcome the former KTB team into our group. This merger will further strengthen the KPI Bridge Oil brand in a consolidating market and it will position us even stronger to meet today’s demands of the highest level of service from financially secure and safe counterparts.”
