About Flivik

In operation since the 1980s, the Flivik quarry lies north of Oskarshamn in Småland province. This is where we quarry Swedish Grey Flivik and the dark Swedish Mahogany Flivik, depending on which part of the quarry the stone comes from. Both of these variations are popular. 

Parts of Tokyo City Hall and various projects in the USA have used stone from Flivik. The world’s oldest arch bridge Norrebro, which links the Royal Palace with central Stockholm, was also paved with stone from Flivik when it was renovated in 2009.
