Launch of dedicated SHV history website

SHV was founded as a coal trading company in 1896. Since then, the world has changed beyond recognition – and so has SHV.

To celebrate the 125th anniversary, we have created a dedicated history website in which we guide visitors through 25 impressive moments in our history, and have a look at events that took place at SHV and the world around us in the last 125 years.

Go on a journey that takes in alliances and politics, world recession and global expansion, invasion and innovation… a journey 125 years in the making.

This page can also be found under ‘Company history‘.
