Nordic Fastening Group is represented at just about every concrete factory across the length and breadth of Sweden. As a result, our products are embedded all over the place in every environment imaginable. We view our customers as business partners, and treat them all with the greatest respect – large and small alike. This can include basic structures such as suspended foundations or an L-support. However, our products are equally likely to be found in many large, prestigious projects such as Friends Arena and Nya Karolinska in Stockholm, where our lifts and connections are used in both terraces and wall elements.
