In 2000, the company became part of the newly formed Dynea Group where the resins and adhesives activities of Dyno, Neste Chemicals and Perstorp were merged. The Dynea Group was dismantled and divested in parts from 2007 to 2013, when the current Dynea was created and sold to Eltek Holding in Norway.

We aim to lead the way in our field and help our customers grow their businesses in a sustainable way. Through continuous innovation and improvement, we hope our activity will stimulate more use of wood in construction, and thus enhance the world’s capacity to safely store CO2.
