Kormarine Korea 2019

Thank you Kormarine, Korea!

By News

We attended Kormarine in Busan, Korea from 22.-25. october. A huge marine expo with over 800 exhibitors from 46 countries.

Kormarine 2019 participation was great success for Sverdrup Steel. We met with many existing business contacts and we also got to meet several new people and companies that we will share future business with thanks to this expo. It was excellent to see our Korean staff at work with great expertise and big smiles all around!

It was also impressive that several Chinese clients made the way to visit us in Busan which we find very welcoming.

We hope to see you all next time!

In november we will attend the Stainless Steel World expo in Maastricht, Netherlands. Read more about it here.

Renate Mannes showing her favourite value

Summary of Offshore Technology Days 2019

By News

After two great days on stand during Offshore Technology Days in Stavanger, we can sum up with a good attendance and plenty of nice conversations. It is always good to see customers, partners and suppliers, and not just talk to them on the phone.

OTD is the meeting place where professionals from the oil and energy business meet and share technical and commercial experience. Its every other year in Stavanger – the opposite year of the huge ONS in the same expo area. (And in Bergen the opposite year.)

The fair was held on wednesday and thursday where the wednesday ended with a great Octoberfest with great food and drinks, entertainment and awards. Renate Mannes from Key Account Sales was on hand and we had a chat with her to hear what her experience of the show was.

Renate – first of all. Are you happy with our presence at OTD?

– Yes, absolutely, I am. Many visitors. We had a nice, spacious stand with a very good location in Hall E surrounded by many interesting companies.

Did you meet the contacts you wanted to meet?

– Got to meet many of them, but not all. I attended the expo at thursday. Was probably a bit quieter than the first day. Some of the explanation lies there I think. In addition, many simply have too busy days that they have not set aside time to visit the expo. But it is often just when it would have been wise to make a visit, and perhaps make new contacts.

Was it anything under OTD that stood out from other exhibitons in the same segment?

– There are many local companies. The expo is not too big either. It is easy to get an overview of all exhibitors.

Is this a expo you would like to attend again?

– Yes it is, both as an exhibitor and visitor.

We saw earlier that your favorite value in Sverdrup Steel is love – can you elaborate on the choice?

– All you need is love! We care about and respect our colleagues, customers and suppliers, and of course family. We are good at taking care of and supporting each other. With this value in the core, we have the foundation for our other good values.

To summarize, we would like to thank you Renate for solid answers, and at the same time we would like to thank OTD for a fine execution of the expo. See you at OTD in Bergen 2020?

Stainless Steel World

We are attending Stainless Steel World 2019

By Exhibitions

Once again we are attending the Stainless Steel World expo in Maastricht, Netherlands. The expo has a display of over 280 steel related companies and thousands of visitors over these days. We have attended SSW several times and we have been very happy with the attendance we have had at our stand previous years. Sverdrup Steel has grown a lot over the last couple of years, the growth has derived from the expansion in formats, alloys and services we now offer to our customers and partners. We hope to have as many current relations and possible new customers stop by our stand as possible, so that we can update and inform about what Sverdrup Steel can contribute with as the markets leading solution provider.

Really looking forward to meeting both old and new acquaintances at our stand B29.

We are striving to learn more about the challenges our existing and potential new customers are facing in this current market. A market that is rapidly changing in a way that presents new challenges in regards to demands on the suppliers, producers and the technology providers. So that we can further improve our understanding of the challenges in the market, enabling us to use our attributes and resources to help us find the optimal solutions.

Sverdrup Steel is a solution provider, adding value to the stainless steel industry, through competence and availability.

With twelve years of experience in design, web development, marketing, and photography he will be a great resource for us throughout the group. We’ve already been his client for several years, so he knows the people and the brand name Sverdrup Steel.
