Scana Skarpenord becomes Skarpenord

From Scana Skarpenord to Skarpenord

Today, Scana Skarpenord is one of the leading suppliers of hydraulic valve control systems for the oil, gas, and shipbuilding industries. In addition, the company also focuses on retrofits and services related to its own products. Now Scana Skarpenord changes name to just Skarpenord.

“Skarpenord is a well-established and well-known name, which reflects a great industrial history from Rjukan over the past 60 years and is recognized both at home and abroad. With the name change we now want to cultivate the Skarpenord name even further. The company will continue to have a unique position in the market and will focus on product development to fit today’s and future the customer needs,” says Styrk Bekkenes, CEO of Scana ASA.

Scana Skarpenord was established in the late 1960s as a department in Norsk Hydro, Rjukan Fabrikker. In 1985, Skarpenord left Norsk Hydro and became an independent company, and in 1989 Scana Industrier acquired the company.
