South Portland-based corporate payment services provider Wex Inc. is expanding its fuel payment service for fleet vehicles in Canada following the recent acquisition of a competitor.

Wex said Wednesday in a news release that it has partnered with Enterprise Fleet Management in Canada to provide payment services to its corporate clients.

Wex said it is able to provide the expanded service thanks to Canadian fueling stations Wex acquired in June when it purchased rival Electronic Funds Source.

Wex and Enterprise said in the release that the new partnership is an extension of an existing agreement in the U.S. that has been in place for over two decades.

“We are looking forward to this new chapter in our partnership with Enterprise and the opportunity for us to expand our presence in Canada,” Melissa Smith, president and CEO of Wex, said in the release. “WEX and Enterprise have a long, successful history together, and we’re certain that working in tandem to bring our offering to Canada will prove beneficial to everyone involved.”

Brice Adamson, senior vice president of Enterprise Fleet Management, said he was happy to extend the partnership into Canada and expects continued success.
