Flekkefjord-based AMV has recently signed large contracts with Hæhre Entreprenør, Kruse Smith Entreprenør and NCC Construction Norge, in total worth more than MNOK 100.
– As a result, we plan to recruit 15 to 20 new people over the next months, says Peder Andersen, CEO of AMV.
In addition to the offshore industry, AMV´s main activities are in tunneling and mining. The company had a turnover of MNOK 295 in 2014, a 12 percent increase from 2013. 2015 is looking equally good.
– We compete in a very competitive market, against significantly larger companies. These large contracts are part of a long-term relationship with our customers, and acknowledges our ability to deliver on quality and service, says Andersen.
He believes that AMV has a strong advantage due to the company´s size and different fields of expertise.
– It is an advantage to work in countercyclical industries like tunneling/mining and offshore. Also, being able to provide both flexible and cost efficient solutions, due to our relatively small size, gives us a strong advantage, says Andersen.
AMV has largely compensated for the downturn in the offshore market and has a record-high order backlog of MNOK 250.
