Nynas UK announce their future plans for the bitumen business in the UK

Nynas UK today announce that they will be ending the partnership with Navigator Terminals at their Teesside depot at the end of the existing contract in December 2022.

“Whilst we have had many successful years of operation from the terminal we have concluded that the configuration of the depot no longer meets our business needs.  We will instead focus on a significant investment program at our existing assets in the UK” explains Jane Dunne, Nynas Bitumen’s UK Sales Director.  

Rafael Renaudeau, Vice President for Nynas Bitumen, adds “In conjunction with our recently implemented shift to a pan-European approach for our Bitumen business we are pleased to be able to invest substantially in our own assets to ensure a strong and stable future for our business in the UK”.
