STX Corporation is a South Korean holding company engaged in the provision of trading services. Headquartered in Gyeongsangnamdo, South Korea, the company operates its business through two divisions: trade and ship maintenance. Its trade business division provides shipping and energy materials, coal, oil, steel and others. Its ship maintenance business offers cargo management, marine technical, insurance, crew management and other related services.[1] The company had five local subsidiaries including STX Offshore & Shipbuilding, STX Engine, STX Heavy Industries, STX PanOcean and STX Energy. STX Offshore & Shipbuilding is the world's fourth largest shipbuilder, recently acquired Norwegian shipbuilder Aker Yards in order to diversify their product line.[2] As Europe's second largest shipbuilder behind Italy's Fincantieri, Aker Yards has a technical background in cruise ship building. STX Group, formerly Ssangyong Heavy Industries, recently had an IPO of STX PanOcean. The IPO gave the group a substantial amount of cash to acquire Aker Yards.
