Since its start in 1939, Stena has developed into an international group with businesses in many parts of the world. Behind this development lies a strong focus for creating value for customers. Two of the Stena Sphere’s main success factors are understanding the specific markets and understanding customers’ specific needs.
Few markets are by their very nature more global than trade, shipping and finance. In order to provide the best possible customer benefits major demands are set on specific industry know-how and a good understanding of the market. A local presence in several countries in Europe, North America and Asia ensures close ties with customers and an understanding of local market conditions.
An understanding of local markets is also underpinned by access to colleagues with different national backgrounds. The Stena Sphere had a headcount of around 19.000 at the end of 2009.
