Bergen Group Services awarded framework agreement with Marine Jet Power AB

Bergen Group Services AS has signed an agreement with Marine Jet Power AB to be their representative for sales and service of waterjet propulsion systems in Norway.

The agreement also opens up for Bergen Group Services AS to assist Marine Jet Power AB (MJP)  outside Norway when needed.

CEO Frode Johansson is satisfied with the fact that Bergen Group Services AS recently has been awarded two new framework agreements with international industrial companies within the maritime industry. Earlier this month, Bergen Group Services AS signed a framework agreement with Volvo Penta and in cooperation with Volvo Penta Center Bjordal & Madsen AS in Bergen. Now an agreement with Marine Jet Power AB is in place.

“We have a long-term strategy to further develop our expertise and capacity related to maintenance and repair of engine and propulsion systems used for demanding maritime operations operation in environments with extra high demands for reliability and service quality. The two recently awarded framework agreements confirms that we have materialized on this strategy in both a regional and national market”, says Johansson.

He considers the new agreement with Marine Jet Power AB as important both operationally and strategically.

“The waterjet propulsion systems from Marine Jet Power AB are known for very high reliability and good efficiency. We look forward to use our expertise to contribute with market assistance on both existing systems and on sales and installation of new products”, says Johansson. The main base for sale and service activities will be carried out from Bergen Group Services existing facilities in Bergen. In addition, additional workshop capacity elsewhere in Norway will be considered, based on market demand for rapid response.

Marine Jet Power AB, headquartered in Uppsala in Sweden, has a worldwide sale and service network and an annual turnover of close to SEK 300 million. MJP’s product line is sold under the trademarks MJP and MJP Ultrajet. The products have already a well-established market position in Norway.

Bergen Group Services AS is a fully owned subsidiary of Bergen Group ASA. Bergen Group Services had in 2014 a turnover of NOK 265 million and operating profit of NOK 24 million. The Company acquired earlier this year the assets and activities of Fjell Industries AS and thus secured larger and more modern production facilities,  enabling capacity growth both in relation to volume and size of the structures to be handled. The takeover has also added further competence both in width and depth to the company, and thus strengthened the basis for Bergen Group Services ambitions of further growth within both existing and new markets.
