Information to our neighbours

We are constantly working to have a close and open dialogue with our neighbours living close to one of our facilities, and we therefore regularly send out newsletters.

Franzefoss Minerals is Norway’s leading supplier of lime and dolomite. For almost 100 years, we have extracted quality products that are important both to individuals and industry. At our facilities, we extract resources from bedrock, either at a quarry or in a mine.

We are very aware of the strains we place on society, but we also know that society needs lime. Our business brings with it a constant duty to be a responsible corporate citizen and to do our best to contribute to sustainable value creation. We rely on long-term and predictable framework conditions to manage our shared resources from a new 100-year perspective.

This also entails a cooperative relationship with all our neighbours.

If you live near one of our facilities, we can send you newsletters containing information about events and/or situations that may be useful for you, as our neighbour, to know about. If you have any questions about our operations, please feel free to contact us directly.
