Bobby Stevens set up Stevens Supply in Dubai over 15 years ago. Pipeline speaks with him about how it all began and what the future holds for this enterprising oilfield service provider
Pipeline: Why and how did you set up Stevens Supply?
Having my own business had been a lifelong dream of mine. When I first arrived in Dubai in the early 1990’s I was amazed at the amount of business opportunities Dubai provided. I said then There are a million ways to make a million dollars in Dubai. You just have to find one. I came to Dubai with a US based oil service company as a field engineer and had moved into a sales position before starting out on my own. An oil and gas related business was the natural choice and even though I now have a diverse range of business ventures, oil and gas is still the most important one and is still by far my favourite.
