STADT Celebrates 30th Anniversary with Move into New Maritime Centre
After some years of preparation, STADT has moved into a new maritime centre in Gjerdsvika, Norway.
The centre is located in the harbour of Gjerdsvika on the midwest coast of Norway, south of Aalesund. It consists of several major companies in a maritime cluster, developed over several generations.
STADT has built the new facility in addition to existing facilities, and this new one has a total area of 3600m² of working space.
Development, testing and engineering facilities are now well integrated in this very modern building. The investment is €5m for this extension of the Maritime Center. The next investment will be to improve the harbor facilities in a government-financed project worth more than €15m.
STADT CEO and founder Hallvard Slettevoll says that the future for their company seems good, since their sustainable, patented, and awarded AC drive technology has found its markets in a number of shipping segments, not only offshore.
The company, now in business for 30 years and with their 5th generation of drive technology, has been through a major growth through the past years, and expects further international growth in their new facilities.
