PORTLAND, ME - Wright Express Corporation, a leading global provider of business payment processing and information management solutions to the U.S. commercial and government fleet industry, has signed an agreement with the privately held Wawa Inc., to offer customers a Proprietary and Universal Fleet Card Program.

Wawa operates a chain of over 580 convenience stores, 287 of which offer fuel throughout a five state area including: Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. The partnership with Wright Express comes after an increasing customer demand for a Wawa fleet card program.

It is an honor to begin a partnership with a company who works so hard to please customers. I'm confident Wawa will be successful in their expansion efforts," said David D. Maxsimic, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Wright Express.
