     History
    Not much on the web about it but it seems to have roots back to the 1930s
    The current plant was most likley built in the late 80s when Ístess hf. began buying up properties from the town of Akureyri in 1985.
    In 1995 it was sold to its current owner Ísfélag Vestmannaeyja hf.
    Closed in 2007.
    2008 - being demolished.
