Alpa AS and Axess Engineering merge and rebrand as Axess Technologies AS

MOLDE, Norway, February 8, 2022 – Alpa AS and Axess’ Engineering department have merged to form Axess Technologies AS, a leading material handling technology company consisting of about 100 highly competent individuals.

Headquartered in Molde, Norway, Axess Technologies is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Axess Group and provides material handling systems and services such as redundant lifting, complex lifting, compliance, studies and analysis as well as maintenance.

Alpa is a specialist in design, manufacturing and maintenance of high-risk application winches, cranes, and advanced material handling equipment. The Engineering department in Axess is a specialist in material handling operations, advanced lifting and rigging operations.

By joining forces under one brand, Axess Technologies will be able to seamlessly combine the delivery of Alpa products and engineering services. They will have stronger concept development capabilities, a wider portfolio of products and services and increased capacity to provide turnkey solutions for our clients. Additionally, this merger will enable further expansion internationally by leveraging Axess’ growing global presence.

Trond Stokke, who previously headed the Engineering department in Axess, has taken up the role of CEO at Axess Technologies, while Leif Løken, previously the VP of Alpa, has taken up the role of COO.

“In recent years, both entities have experienced significant growth locally and internationally. With our combined experience, we will continue to develop innovative solutions with a focus on safety and maximum uptime for our clients worldwide,” Trond said.

“Since Alpa was first established, we have been working closely with the Engineering department to deliver a comprehensive range of products and material handling solutions for the offshore and maritime sector. Now, we have increased capacity to better serve clients in the Oil & Gas industry, and to expand further towards offshore wind and other strategic markets,” Leif added.
