June 12, 2018
Leading fuel and aviation services provider, World Fuel Services (WFS), has received a Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation 2018 Supplier of the Year Award.
This achievement was bestowed upon WFS to recognise its continued innovation and investment in Gulfstream’s journey toward environmental sustainability. Since 2016, WFS has provided Gulfstream with more than 375,000 gallons of a renewable fuel blend that has been used to fly the Gulfstream corporate fleet over 500,000 nautical miles. Each gallon of renewable fuel burned achieves a greater than 60 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions on a life cycle basis relative to petroleum jet fuel.
WFS has partnered with Gulfstream for two decades, providing fuel and aviation solutions to support the management of its business-critical operations at international and business aviation sites across the US, including Savannah, GA, Appleton, WI, Westfield, MA and Long Beach, CA.
The award, which recognised WFS’ total value chain cost, administrative services, delivery and customer support, was presented at Gulfstream’s 2018 Supplier Conference, hosted at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center in Savannah, GA on June 4th.
Steve Drzymalla, SVP, Business Aviation Bulk Fuel at WFS, said: “We’re very proud to have been named a Gulfstream Supplier of the Year. It’s testament to our continued commitment to innovation at every turn which supports Gulfstream’s quest to offer the most innovative, high quality service available worldwide. We’re especially proud of the great work we’ve carried out to manage Gulfstream’s push toward an environmentally sustainable future through our Biofuel provision.
“Our flexible approach has seen us serve more than 2,400 Gulfstream aircraft with flight operations solutions including contract fuel, AVCARD®, and trip support services in 2017 alone.
“WFS has been working with Gulfstream for almost 20 years, offering a wide variety of flexible fuel and aviation services to support the business’ requirements and objectives. We look forward to continuing the relationship well into the future.”
