About Vånga

The quarry in Vånga lies north of Kristianstad in north-east Skåne province and has been operating since the 1920s. Today we operate four quarries here, extracting Swedish Red Vånga. Its distinct, vibrant red lustre has made the stone very popular, and it is ideal for headstones and construction stone products. The red varies depending on which of the four quarries it comes from. This is why the stone comes in two varieties: Swedish Red Vånga and Swedish Red Vånga Premium.
