Company description

Kirby Corporation was incorporated in Nevada on January 31, 1969 as a subsidiary of Kirby Industries, Inc. The company became publicly owned on September 30, 1976 and is traded on the New York Stock Exchange. In 1990, the name of the company was changed from Kirby Exploration Company, Inc. to Kirby Corporation. The company conducts operations in two business segments: marine transportation and diesel engine services. The marine transportation segment is engaged in the inland transportation of petrochemicals, black oil products, refined petroleum products and agricultural chemicals by tank barges, and, to a lesser extent, the offshore transportation of dry-bulk cargoes by barge. The diesel engine services segment is engaged in the overhaul and repair of medium-speed and high-speed diesel engines and reduction gears, and related parts sales in three distinct markets: the marine market, providing aftermarket service for vessels powered by diesel engines utilized in the various inland and offshore marine industries; the power generation market, providing aftermarket service for diesel engines that provide standby, peak and base load power generation for users of industrial reduction gears and for standby generation components of the nuclear industry; and the railroad market, providing aftermarket service and parts for shortline, industrial, Class II and certain transit railroads. Kirby is headquartered in Houston, Texas.
