When the Storebro Bruks AB was struggling with flagging sales as a result of the oil crisis in the mid-70s, they thought to enter new markets. Looking to the availability of oil, the focus was set on the Arab countries. To develop these markets, an appropriate employee was wanted for distribution. The choice was then on Jan Nedvall

He started working for STOREBRO on 1976-03-01. During his working time, ships were delivered to Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Arab Emirates and other Emirates. Later, the market in Libya was also added.

During the dinner at Tanumshede on the occasion of the second rallye SRCC founding member Peter Gavrell suggested in his speech that in the future the SRCC Board should organize the SRCC rallies.
