The two Norwegian companies are entering into an agreement to establish a scaffolding depot at the Hanøytangen yard. The depot will serve Western Norway with particular focus on the Oil & Gas/Maritime industry, as well as other industries located in the region.
Semco Maritime will operate and manage the depot on behalf of HAKI AS. The cooperation will strengthen the two companies’ presence and enable them to provide better service to the customers in this region. HAKI AS is a world leading scaffolding manufacturer with innovative access and containment solutions that go hand in hand with Semco Maritime’s high quality stamp of excellence.
The agreement has been founded on the fact that both parties have common interests and goals in serving and developing the industry in Western Norway. Semco Maritime acquired the Hanøytangen yard mid-2015. The yard facilities hold the largest dry-dock in North Europe. HAKI AS possesses the most innovative solutions in scaffolding as well temporary buildings and weather protection solutions. Both parties expect the agreement to strengthen and improve offerings to customers and that the cooperation will increase the ambition to win future contracts for maintaining both offshore platforms and other maritime/marine projects as well as shore-based projects.
"HAKI already has a very good cooperation with Semco Maritime in Denmark and we are very pleased to further build on this in Norway. The Norwegian cooperation agreement will strengthen our position and distribution in Western Norway and we will together with Semco Maritime provide both our existing customers and new customers with the best possible service", said CEO Thomas Schüller, Haki AS, Norway.
With the new cooperation agreement with HAKI we are able to further strengthen Semco Maritime’s position by being able to offer a wider range of services. We will be able to make sure that the facilities at Hanøytangen quickly can provide its customers with scaffolding on site. The cooperation will make the operation at the Hanøytangen yard more agile and attractive to the customers, said Lars Skov, CEO of Semco Maritime AS, Norway.
