Odda Technology was established on the 15th of September in 2016. This was a result of an management buyout from the former group company. Core personnel from former company, with up to 40 years of operational experience, decided to continue the operations and bring the high accuracy industry heritage further on.
The original company was started in Odda back in 1977, then established as a part of Kongsberg Våpenfabrikk (KV), with the purpose to produce rotary parts for gas turbines and jet-engine parts for the F16 jet.
When the Norwegian goverment in the early 70`s established Statoil and Kongsberg Offshore, to lift the subsea industry, the KV environments had a central role in development and production of subsea system equipment. Through this period KV Odda also was a key player in the development of Subsea high accuracy products, and contributed a lot to the birth of the Subsea system industry, now a global industry.
Many of the people who took part in this activity is now in central positions in Odda Technology and use their competence in advanced prototype production, for all type of industries.
The company’s well equipped 6000m2 facility is placed in the Odda municipality, where we have the benefits of high industrial competence.
