Glencore is a growing powerhouse that has left a huge impact on the world as one of the largest natural resource establishments in the entire globe. Established and developed by its leading billionaire founders, Marc Rich, Glencore was formerly known as Marc Rich + Co AG back in the 1970s. However, as times changes, so does the company itself. Besides the obvious name change to Glencore (which stands for “Global Energy Commodity Resources”), the company has tackled on the task of producing and marketing an extensive list of commodities that cater to a variety of industries. Having supplied approximately 90 commodities, Glencore is the answer to several industrial consumers’ needs, which includes steel, automotive, to even food processing.
Because of the range of demands that must be catered to, it’s no surprise why Glencore has such a big working force under their wing. Even though they have approximately 150,000 employees scattered around more than 50 nations, Glencore does its best to make sure that their entire working staff is strong and solid. Everyone under the company are required to share the same vision and mission of the company. And above all, it’s all about providing the best customer service experience. Whatever their clients want, Glencore does its best to accommodate them.
