On-board processing: With the ownership of Steel Tech, Carsoe obtains a platform for expanding business in Norway within the market of processing equipment for trawlers.
”We wish to become a major market player within the on-board processing segment. Steel Tech is the perfect partner to achieve this goal”, states managing director Mikkel Jacobsen. ”With the new cooperation Carsoe will expand its organization with a sales office in Norway and staff who has profound knowledge of the local market with many years of experience within on-board production of white fish.
As Norway and in particular Ålesund is the centre for the development of marine technology, it is crucial for Carsoe to be represented in this area with local staff who knows the business”.
Since 2003 Steel Tech has supplied increasingly bigger and more complex plants for on-board productions. This year, Steel Tech has delivered Molnes, a plant with a large number of state-of-the-art technology.
“Together with Carsoe, Steel Tech becomes part of a larger set up which enables us to deliver more and larger projects than before”, says Stein Kjerstad, the general manager of Steel Tech Carsoe.
“For a period of time Steel Tech had been stuck in the middle as for how to further develop the company. However, with Carsoe we have found the right partner enabling us to take Steels Techs competencies to another level”, complements Stein Kjerstad.
At present, Carsoe is in the process to install two new factories in Turkey and expects to enter several other new agreements in cooperation with Steel Tech throughout fall this year. The new partnership has taken off strongly from the very first beginning. Both existing as well as new customers have reacted very positive to this cooperation and are confident that Steel Tech Carsoe will be able to handle complex projects backed up by Carsoe’s new facilities in Aalborg with 150 employees as well as experienced engineers and technicians.
