• Steypustöðin

    In 1947, Steypustöðin commenced its operations as a concrete producer using concrete trucks, making it a trailblazer in Europe. This innovation opened the doors for construction in Iceland during the country's most prosperous era after the Second World War. Presently, Steypustöðin stands as the largest ready-mix manufacturer in Iceland.

  • Concrete

    Steypustöðin's primary focus lies in the production of high-quality wet concrete, adhering to all building regulation requirements regarding additives and fillers. We prioritize product development and continuously strive to incorporate innovative production methods. Today, the creation of wet concrete involves advanced technology, utilizing computer-controlled processes from the concrete plant to the construction site via concrete trucks. The company boasts its laboratory to monitor the quality of all production processes meticulously.

  • Paving stones, screed and masonry

    Apart from producing wet concrete, Steypustöðin also runs a slab factory at Álfhella in Hafnafjörður, where they manufacture slabs, paving stones, and related materials with utmost precision. The company also manages a masonry shop in Malarhöfði, where they sell top-notch masonry materials imported from trusted sources. Additionally, Steypustöðin provides screed vehicles' services to cater to flooring material needs for new constructions and renovations across the country.

  • Precast production in Borgarnes

    In 2016, Steypustöðin broadened its service offerings for customers in precast units, hollow core plates, filigree plates, and concrete pipes by acquiring Loftorka Borganes. Loftorka Borgarnes is a reputable company established in 1962, initially providing air compressor services, which inspired its name. Over the years, the company evolved into one of Iceland's most robust precast unit plants, specializing in concrete units and pipes. The operation presently spans more than 12,000 square meters of housing.

  • Mining

    In 2018, Steypustöðin acquired and merged two companies established in the 1980s, Alexander Ólafsson and Tak-Malbik. The combined entity boasts powerful machinery for material processing, as well as a highly experienced workforce equipped with extensive knowledge in this field. Steypustöðin operates two mines, Vatnskarðsnáman and Hólabrúarnáman, which are significant suppliers of minerals for practical projects in the country. They also produce minerals for Vegagerðin and municipalities. The mines prioritize continued development, with efforts directed towards recycling waste materials for both asphalt and concrete production.
