Red Rock has increased revenue from MNOK 0 to 57 in just five years. And Nymo landed a huge contract on Johan Sverdrup last year. This is part of the reason why the jury selected the two companies as finalists.
Other finalists include Strai Kjøkken, Dyreparken, Igland Garasjen, Palmesus and Norgesplaster. One last finalist has yet to be nominated.
The award Årets Sørlandsbedrift is presented by the newspaper Fædrelandsvennen. Previous winners include Air Products (2014).
