A retrospect on 2022

The year 2022 was one of strong performances for Wagenborg and for all business segments. Amid volatile market conditions – the Russian invasion in Ukraine had a significant impact on the world in terms of geopolitics and energy – our business performed well overall, achieving record volumes and providing a vital service to our customers in the face of significant supply chain disruptions. As we move into 2023 and are confident to continue this positive vibe, here is a look back on some stories that moved our company last year.
