World Fuel Services Corporation (NYSE:INT) announced today that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of select assets of Multi Service Corporation (“Multi Service”), a global transaction management company specializing in fleet, government, and commercial payment programs.

Multi Service is headquartered in Overland Park, Kansas and has 360 employees.
