It all started on a small scale with the founder Trond Sivertsen. Building on his background from the offshore industry, he saw potential for improvement in the net cleaning. He found a huge demand for cleaning equipment with higher quality and functionality. Sivertsen started the company with no capital.
Whit only a credit card and an old caravan as office. He travelled along the coastline with his prototype on the trailer, tested and developed together with potential customers. Sceptics along the way made him even more determined to succeed and prove them wrong. With courage and hard work he succeed in creating the world leading manufacturer of net cleaning equipment.
