We know what it takes to succeed, and guide you safely and efficiently to a successful establishment – and further to a profitable operation.
Everyone seeking business opportunities will have their specific wishes and needs. There is a substantial difference between the requirements of a large industrial production facility and an innovative tech-scaleup. But common to all is that they are looking for a safe haven; the location where they can best succeed. Where both physical and framework conditions do not provide a headwind, but a predictable and constant tailwind. It is difficult enough to run a profitable business, if you do not have to struggle with complicated infrastructure, fight to get hold of competent people and fear that the framework conditions will change with each and every election.
The region of Vestfold and Telemark has hosted industrial activity for more than 1,000 years. This is primarily due to natural conditions, such as the location - with a coastline facing south - and stable, green power from the mountains in Telemark.
