Schweden Splitt AB was established in 1993 and is a Swedish company registered in Karlshamn municipality. It is owned by Basalt Minerals GmbH (BAG) with its statutory seat in Linz Am Rhein, in South Western Germany.
Our business concept is to exploit the absence of primary rock formations suitable for the production of high-quality macadam in the Southern part of the Baltic region. This means that countries like Denmark, Germany, Poland, Kaliningrad and the Baltic states have to cover their need for high-quality macadam by importing such products from countries like Sweden or Norway.
The bedrock in the county of Blekinge, and indeed in most parts of Sweden, consists of primary rock. In the Western, coastal parts of Blekinge, in the municipality of Karlshamn, the bedrock consists of fine-grained, light-grey granite gneiss. It is typical for this area, and an unrivalled raw material for the production of high-quality macadam.
Since the start of production in the autumn 1995 while operating in Stilleryd, we have produced and delivered approximately 20 Mton of aggregates. More than 85% of this volume have been exported by ship to clients in the Southern Baltic region and the remaining volume on the local market.
The Stilleryd operation was depleted in 2012 and the land has been re-cultivated and returned to the owners, the municipality of Karlshamn and Karlshamn port. The levelled area is now ready to be used for industrial exploitation and during 2013 the land owner has invested in a new railway terminal for goods handling between rail and sea.
In the autumn 2010, Schweden Splitt bought the existing quarry in Elleholm, approximately 10 km West of Karlshamn and this is where the present operation is located. During 2013 a new environmental permit was granted for expanding the quarry and the associated port and fairway.
Most of the production is being shipped from Elleholm port to clients abroad and for the local market materials are delivered by truck.
Schweden Splitt AB provide asphalt works and concrete plants with aggregates from Denmark in the West to the Baltic countries in the East.
