Danish company Carsoe specialises in fish processing systems and has seen its share of the market expand significantly, having tendered successfully for six out of seven contracts for shrimp trawlers since 2015.
During the last twelve months Carsoe has beaten its own record by signing contracts for six new trawlers, delivering equipment for shrimp and white fish processing on board. Among the orders is the Carsoe’s first ever complete fillet and round fish processing plant.
Carsoe CEO Mikkel Jacobsen is confident of winning just as many orders in the coming twelve months.
‘I believe our increasing market share is the result of our efforts to come up with innovative solutions that work in real life at sea. We also keep a constant focus on giving our customers a second to none service both during the project phase but also during operation. Our reputation as a responsive and reliable supplier means we work with the same customers for decades,’ he said.
All of the contracts signed during the last twelve months have been with customers that Carsoe and the former Carnitech has dealt with for the last twenty years or more. By partnering with the Norwegian process automation company Steel Tech Carsoe and with the start-up in Seattle, Carsoe and its workforce from the Carnitech era R03;are able to supply all kinds of processing solutions and factories. In addition, Carsoe can deliver the latest and most in-demand equipment for automatic freezing and palletising.
The company is expanding at its Aalborg premises, taking an additional 3500 square meters of workshop space into use n the second quarter of 2017, plus 500 square meters for administration workplaces. The company has for some time been recruiting to keep pace with the demand for processing equipment.
