Irving Family | No. 6

1,247,880 ACRES

Kenneth Colin “K.C.” Irving (1899–1992) ranks as Canada’s equivalent of Standard Oil founder John D. Rockefeller. In the early 20th century, Irving gained a foothold in the oil patch that eventually evolved into a stronghold. To this day, his family’s IRVING OIL operates Canada’s largest refinery in St. John, New Brunswick (above) as well as more than 900 gas stations in Canada and the US. It opened its first stateside gas station in Maine in 1972. The company now fuels much of Maine. The family’s J.D. IRVING companies have a longstanding interest in forestland, owning 3.3 million acres in North America. Its million-plus US acreage is concentrated in Maine. In November, the company opened a $470 million tissue production plant in Georgia.
