History
In 2009 we are 100 years old.
The yard was founded in 1909 by Peder E.Fiskerstrand and was then called Fiskerstrand Slip & Motorverksted.

From its humble beginnings, the yard has enjoyed a steadily increasing order book over the years. In 2005, we will approx. have a pre-tax turnover of $36million. The yard has 140 employees, and in addition, a further supply years in the local region result from the use of subcontractors within electrical, interior/painting and temporary workers in other trades during busy periods. Our total workforce can sometimes amount to as many as 180 to 250 workers daily at the yard. The yard itself is constantly being expanded and upgraded in order to meet new challenges, and we are at the forefront in terms of technology and good working conditions within our industry. This is vital to ensure our competitive edge and safeguard efficiency, and moreover to attract the highest calibre of personnel. We often have to devise our own solutions in the case of some of our most specialised processes.
Our workforce processes vast experience and wide-ranging expertise, with an exceptional flair for integrating "old knowledge" with new technology.
