In our world, nothing is consumed. We collect all kinds of residual material that arises from both operations and production. The materials are refined and can live on as raw materials for new products or new energy. Our goal is to recycle materials wisely to contribute to environmental benefits and a strong economy for our customers. In this way, recycling becomes a sustainable business for your company while at the same time helping to maximize the reuse of the world's finite resources.
With 1,600 employees and nearly 90 plants, we are one of Sweden's leading recycling companies. Our business, founded in 1939 by Sten A Olsson, has grown to 3.4 million tonnes of material annually. We are proud to be part of the Stenasphere and are part of the Stena Metall Group, which operates in more than 200 locations in 10 countries. The sphere is one of Sweden's largest family-owned business groups with operations worldwide and consists of three wholly-owned parent companies; Stena AB, Stena Sessan AB, and Stena Metall AB.
Cooperation has always been important to us. More importantly, it is becoming more and more of the way we are leading the development to help our customers and business partners become part of the circular economy. We work closely with our customers, supporting them with sustainable recycling, processes, optimization, and logistics. We develop cutting-edge solutions, invest in research for new technology, and help the industry design products that can be recycled again.
We care about resources, whether it is hazardous waste, paper, metal, or other materials. We contribute with the materials that become the building blocks of society. Through all this, we create robust, sustainable business opportunities, and financial results.
Together we create a sustainable tomorrow.
