“We have been an owner in Nynas since the 1990’s and have seen the company develop into a global leader in naphthenic specialty oils and a premier bitumen partner in Europe. We believe that the sale of Neste’s shares in Nynas to an industrial player with a strong focus in the same sector is the right solution for Nynas, recognising also the ongoing reorganisation process,” said Neste’s Chief Financial Officer Jyrki Mäki-Kala.
Nynas is a Swedish manufacturer and marketer of naphthenic specialty oils and bitumen products. Nynas has four refineries: Harburg in Germany, Nynäshamn and Gothenburg in Sweden and Eastham in the UK. Eastham is a joint venture with Shell.
The Bitumina Group is a vertically integrated specialty Bitumen company which has expanded its business on a global scale.
“We take great pride in having been able to acquire the shares of Neste in Nynas which is a natural expansion in our global industrial bitumen portfolio. We are certain that we can contribute to the successful future of Nynas”, said Bernd Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Bitumina Industries Ltd.
