Our History

In 2001: New Stone Ltd., equipped with a long history in trading gasoline components, changed its focus and became an active broking company for gasoline components and petrochemical products.

Our small team of well accomplished and effective professionals, which is located in Zug, Switzerland, serves several international customers. Our client base consists of major refineries, gasoline blenders and trading companies located around the globe.

In 2009: After eight years of a successful operation, New Stone Ltd. decided to expand their activities into other parts of the world and increase their range of products, which consists of all gasoline blending components, Methanol and Bio-fuels.

In 2013: New Stone Broking Ltd. was founded in order to have broking as a separate entity.

In 2014: New Stone Technology Ltd. was founded, which is an online trading platform in response to the fast changing technological developments. This unique, modern and sophisticated way of broking brings our customers more efficiency and expediency, which brings the most current and leading available market information.

In 2015: New Stone Technology Ltd. started a joint venture with a team of well experienced brokers in the field of various petrochemical and gasoline products. This resulted in the founding of New Stone Americas. By traditional voice brokering and using the New Stone Technology Trading platform they assist their U.S. based customers and offer them the possibility to trade in different parts of the world.
