A dynamic 90-year-old

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.
