About us

We strive to create lasting value.

Koppernæs AS has a long and proud history as Norwegian maritime pioneer that dates back to 1884. Today, Koppernæs is owned and run by fifth generation descendants of its founder. Each generation having strived to leave the company stronger than when they themselves took control. This lays the foundation for our business philosophy: We strive to create lasting value. Sustainability is an inherent part of our philosophy, ensuring that our heritage can be passed on to future generations and making it possible for them to thrive.

Corporate strategy

Koppernæs has strong ties to Norway’s maritime and marine industries, both historically and geographically. We have also been involved with and affiliated to companies within the infrastructure industries for many decades. It is therefore both natural and prudent that Koppernæs strengthen its presence and focus on these areas of business in the period ahead.

The challenges facing and opportunities arising within the blue industries and infrastructure sector are largely governed by global trends. Koppernæs’s direction, will be steered, in part, by megatrends encompassing demographic development, increased globalization and evolving markets. Scarcity of resources and climate change will also prove important factors. Our mission is to enable people to grow and thrive together to create lasting value for our customers, our people, our shareholders and the society wherever we work and live.

As a proactive and long-term investor, Koppernæs will contribute with core competencies in business development, financial structuring, industry insights and relevant networks for growth companies within the ocean space and infrastructure industries to ensure they realize their true potential.
