CEO Kim Steinsland told the story of Scanmatic’s impressive growth when he met State Secretary Dilek Ayhan recently.

The State Secretary at the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries visited Kristiansand to meet with representatives from Innovation Norway, GCE NODE and Eyde Cluster.

“I took the opportunity to tell our company’s story. How it was established in 1971, how it slowly evolved, and how Arendal Fossekompani, as an owner, has contributed to its recent success. Revenues have increased from MNOK 50 in 2010 to a projected MNOK 600 this year,” says Steinsland.

Scanmatic is a technology company focusing on innovation and technology development. Its 110 employees, mainly in Arendal, but some at Ås and in Sweden, are skilled technologists with extensive competence and experience in the developing and engineering of rugged industrial systems for instrumentation, monitoring and control.

Since its establishment in 1971, Scanmatic have focused on the development and supply of quality products and systems within industrial instrumentation, monitoring and control systems for professional, industrial customers in the communications, defense, offshore and renewable energy sectors.

A typical Scanmatic delivery is a robust industrial system designed for high reliability and long life in a challenging environment, often outdoors or subsea.
