The goal was to achieve a coordinated solution where we take the best out of our two companies’ expertise and long experience. When conditions change, it makes sense to invest in innovation. Finding new ways to collaborate is precisely about this. By combining the expertise and capacity of the two companies, CCB and Mongstadbase will handle the increasing volume and development of our base concepts based on quality and efficiency. With the positive attitude we have encountered in the process so far, we have great faith that we will achieve development and growth in the future, says the director.

-Through conversations over the last weeks, it has become clear that there is a good basis for collaborating with CCB going forward and thereby draw on the expertise and experience of both organizations. We are very pleased that we have now agreed on a takeover of Mongstadbase AS. We still need to look at adaptations of organization and staff, but this gives us a better basis to make good choices in this process concludes Langøy.
