In October 1928 the S/S British Earl delivered the very first cargo of crude oil for the newly-built refinery in Nynäshamn, Sweden. The history of Nynas could start to unfold.
Research and development was a strong driving force for the business from the very outset. Among other things, Nynas was among the first in Europe to manufacture petrol with a high octane level. The global energy crisis in the mid-1970s resulted in a transition from a small traditional Swedish oil company into an international player focused on special products.
Nynas is now one of Europe’s leading bitumen suppliers, and is also a world leader in the field of naphthenic specialty oils, which are used in everything from car tyres to transformers.
The manufacturing of products with a long useful life differentiates Nynas from most traditional oil companies.
In the 1960s Nynas operated a mobile asphalt laboratory.
A number of initiatives are needed to attract new groups and in general to increase diversity in the industry. There is otherwise the risk of a serious skills shortage in the future.Read more about Talking point: recruiting new talent
