PMB gains ground in Norway

As a result of the growing Norwegian road construction market, Nynas has decided to further invest in upgrading the Drammen depot, situated south west of Oslo.

In addition to increased storage capacity, a new PMB plant will also be built.

“By investing in a PMB plant in Drammen, we’ll be moving closer to the market and can continue to offer a reliable supply of our polymer-modified products. We’ll also avoid the deliveries by road tanker from Sweden we used to depend on, thus reducing CO2 emissions,” says Kjell Arne Juul, Managing Director, Nynas AS.
