History: With a desire to work at Nesna, Arnt Jonny Skogsøy and friends started a company that would later house more than 50 employees. From the start in 1987 until today, the business has changed from hiring labor in the local area, to becoming a complete shipyard. The first workshop was built in 1990 in the center of Nesna with the production of ship modules as the primary activity. In 1999, development began on the plant in Lansetvågen, which to this day is constantly being developed and expanded. After 35 years, the goal is still the same, to be a total supplier within ship service and fabrication to the oil and gas industry.
