Nynas celebrates 90th anniversary

11/9/2018 - Stockholm, Sweden - When Nynas' first refinery was taken into operation in 1928, the focus was on providing the Swedish market with fuel. Today, their highly specialized naphthenic oils are included in everything from gearboxes and rubber to adhesives and electrical transformers. It all started in 1928. One of the great Swedish industrialists, Axel Axelsson Johnson, together with Charles Almqvist, were the men behind the building of Sweden’s first large-scale oil refinery. At that time, oil was already big business in America. As the usage of cars had become even more popular in Sweden, the demand for asphalt and gasoline increased. From 1930-1980, Nynas petrol stations was a common sight throughout Sweden. Then came the energy crisis in the 1970s, and after rethinking its strategy, Nynas dismantled the network of petrol stations, transforming Nynas into a global group of companies with a focus on specialty products. As the 1990s began, the modern Nynas continued with two business areas and began expanding its sales of naphthenic specialty oils internationally. This year they celebrate 90 years of successes and solutions, research and development, investments and improvements, experience and innovation, acquisitions and partnerships, and over 1.000 dedicated employees around the world. Nynas has become a global leader in naphthenic oils. Through their unique expertise, Nynas is said to deliver next-generation sustainable and efficient solutions and unrivaled value to their customers and the world.
