Nordisk Bergteknik provides rock services such as drilling, blasting, wire cutting and rock reinforcement and is the leading independent provider in the Nordic region of above ground drilling and blasting. The company was formed when the Älvsbyn, Sweden based Norrbottens Bergteknik in June 2017 acquired the Sandefjord, Norway based Vestfold Fjellboring.
The large infrastructure projects and the increasing level of property development in Sweden and Norway means that within the foreseeable future there will be a strong underlying market growth of demand for the services that Nordisk Bergteknik offers. The rock services segment is estimated to constitute around one percent of the total building and infrastructure market, which makes the Swedish market worth around 2.5 billion Swedish crowns per year.
The company is active within primarily three business areas. In the business area Contracting the company works as a subcontractor. The customer are often major infrastructure or building construction companies that have the overall contractual responsibility but do not themselves have the drilling and blasting know-how. These services are usually procured locally for each individual project. For the business area Ballast the customers are owners of quarries and suppliers of gravel, coarse stone or other crushed products. Norrbottens Bergteknik is contracted to drill and blast in the quarries of a number of larger and mid-size companies such as Swerock, Svevia, Skanska and BDX. The third area, Mining, is estimated by the company to return to being a growth area after some difficult years. In this area Norrbottens Bergteknik mainly provides services above ground.
