    Scanian Cement AB realized at the time of the second world war that the demand for cement would come to increase in the future.
    The two factories as the company already took would not suffice. In order to be able to respond to after-the issue was planned a new plant which would be able to supply residential construction in Stockholm with cement. The company was looking for an appropriate location and jammed in the end for large fold. Here was a lime-Berg as measured 65 m above sea level and owned by AB Map * Oaxens Kalkbruk, a company that see-dan in 1922 included in Scanian Cement AB. This was also a natural djuphamnt inside Fållnäsviken which made it possible to sea transport the finished cement to Stockholm.

    In 1945 got Skånsa Cementgjuteriet AB commissioned to build the new at with associated residential area. The factory was designed by architect Lennart Tham and the first residential Marsta draw-des of Gustaf Lettström. Construction work began in 1946. Kalkstensbrytningen Com started in 1948 and at the beginning of 1949 was inaugurated at that time was one of the world's largest and most modern witha capacity of 1 200 tonnes of cement per day. In order to be able to seamlessly transport cup between lime-offense and the factory was built in a 700-meter long cable car. 600 000 TONNES limestone, 50 000 tonnes in mud and 80 000 tonnes of coal consumed per year. Elförbukningen up-went to approximately 45 million kWh per year. Most worked a hundred people here. This was förutomdriftspersonal who worked 3-shift also laboratory, office and kitchen staff.

    Over the years the factory underwent a number of changes in the manufacturing process. This meant that some of the buildings became redundant while other was built. Both the factory and society flourished in the 1950s and 1960s.

    Cement was manufactured according to the so-called våtmetoden which was very high energy. This with-brought to at became more expensive in operation. This, in combination with a downstream demand, as well as, as well as the increased competition from, among other things Polish betongindustri did to the plant in large Fold became unprofitable, and business was down at the beginning of

    Part of the site is now used as a wood mill and some also by the Army.
