For 30 years ago – in 1988, the management in at that time Teknotherm AS decided to open a branch office at the west coast of Norway to offer service and follow-up to owners of local fishing vessels. The location was chosen to be Ålesund, right in the center of the marine-, fishing- and offshore industry in Norway and North of Europe.
The first employee at the Ålesund-office was Øystein Hessen, started 1st. of January 1988. He was first hired as a service engineer, and later on he became the department manager of the office, a position he had until he retired some years ago. It was therefore pleasant that Øystein also was able to be present at the anniversary.
30 years operation of an office is a considerably time, so the anniversary was celebrated with a party at Atlanterhavsparken in Ålesund for the present and some of the former staff last week. And as we can see, the atmosphere was really good, and they go for further 30 years of operation:)
