Yara International is one of the world’s largest providers of fertilizers and crop nutrition solutions. The company was founded in 1905 to solve the emerging famine in Europe, and now has a worldwide presence with about 17,000 employees and operations in over 60 countries. In 2018, Yara reported revenues of USD 12.9 billion. The Norwegian government is the company’s largest shareholder.
Yara is moving its customer service, and part of its transport management and operational planning functions from their current set-up in Europe to a single Business Service Center in Vilnius, Lithuania. The operation will have a key role in the company’s core business. There will be a team of 200 people at Yara European Business Centre by the end of 2019, speaking 11 languages, supporting more than 18 European countries.
