Halsnøy and Høylandsbygd have long traditions in the maritime industry, with vessels being built here since the 1800s, making the area a central place in the art of shipbuilding.

The area in which the company works today was constructed in the 1970s, with vessels being built here ever since then. For the first decade, the entire process from hull construction the finished ship was completed on the premises, but since then the work has been more focused on maintenance and reconstructions.
