History

Our history

It all started with two brothers that attended as crew on board a wooden boat participating in herring fishing in the North Sea in 1971.

The early start

In port in a coastal city in western Norway the 2 brothers had some hours to rest. Before falling to sleep the elder brother had an idea that they should get their own vessel and start a business for themselves. They agreed to do so. Then the hard work started.

The work finding a vessel that could fit their first operation and funds to buy it was not easy. Many believed in them and they found solutions. After some months they where able to buy and equip a fishing vessel and started their first operation in 1972. 

Their first fishing vessel operation resulted in a big success and they where able to buy their second vessel just some months later. The success continued and they had started a profitable and growing business.

The success story has resulted in operating more than 60 vessels in various segments and to build more than 20 ships. And it is still continuing.
