The Båtservice Group is a strong team of companies that complement each other. There are now ten companies under the umbrella of parent company Båtservice Holding ASA. It may seem strange at first glance that ten companies with competence in everything from shipbuilding to electronics and engineering should be within the same Group. We begin to see the logic if we look on the Båtservice Group as a jigsaw puzzle - every piece plays its part in making up the complete picture.
Strength in balance
Everything started in 1948 when Toralf Westermoen who was a member of the parlament founded Westermoens Båtbyggeri A/S and some years later became the Båtservice Group. 60 Years later 14 companies makes the Båtservice Group a strong team as they complement each other. It may seem strange at first glance that all these companies with competence in everything from shipbuilding to electronics and engineering should be within the same Group. Every piece plays its part in making up the complete picture of The Batservice Group.
Each company stands on its own, but at the same time contributes to the company as a whole by offering special skills that the others can make use of. Together the Group’s employees embrace a huge range of competence, which gives a unique flexibility.
We believe in close cooperation at management level right across the Group. This results in synergy in finance, sales and marketing. The strength in balance. The core activities of the Group are shipbuilding and repair, commissions for the onshore and offshore industries and aviation. We give great effort to our ability to deliver tailor made solutions.
