Hatteland Display is moving its headquarters 30 miles west to a
new purpose-built building with extended research and development
(R&D) and testing facilities.
The company has begun to relocate from its original location in
Åmsosen to its new HQ in Aksdal on the west coast of Norway, in a
move that aims to support Hatteland Display's technology growth
strategy and to ensure better links and shipping access.
Hatteland Display's entire Norwegian operation is moving to the
purpose-built building on Aksdal Business Park. With a total
capacity of 4,000 m², the building houses production, warehousing
and all office functions, in addition to a state-of-the-art
R&D facility with lab and extended testing areas.
"With extended R&D and testing facilities, our new HQ is a
catalyst for the further development of innovative solutions that
will introduce further operational efficiencies and safety
benefits to vessel and fleet operations," said Trond K.
Johannessen, President and CEO, Hatteland Display. "While
creating a strong platform for future growth, the investment in
our new facilities signals our commitment to supporting the
business and operational needs of our customers and strengthens
our position as a key technology partner in the industry."
Hatteland Display said its new production facility enables an
improved product flow, combined with a new, modern warehouse and
improved transport links. The new office space is home to the
entire sales, product management, purchasing, planning and
administration functions from Åmsosen. All R&D, sales and
administration functions at Hatteland Display's Lysaker office
near Oslo continue as before.
"The move has been intricately planned to ensure that all of our
customers and partners experience no delays, communications or
service issues. Our production, operation and deliveries will
continue un-interrupted and on-time," said Lars
Skjelbred-Eriksen, Vice President Sales & Marketing,
Hatteland Display. "We are just over a month into the move and we
are on schedule to have completed it by early December."
