Opplyst is a regional conference and award ceremony. Several successful companies from the Salten region are nominated for awards in many categories.
In 2017 Rapp Bomek was nominated for the “Export prize”. Among the criteria were degree of innovation, processing level, exploitation of export potential, sustainable production (footprint / environmental profile) and ownership.
The jury's reasoning: the winner has noted the ability for rapid adaptability in a swinging international market – without the ability to innovate being affected. The company employs people not just from all over Norway, but from other countries as well. Although the majority of their workers are from the region. This provides diversity and focus on talent. They have received contracts in new emerging industries. They are not a typical commodity company, they have a high degree of processing and a big share of work in the aftermarket. They have contributed to significant growth and are continuously looking for new markets through their international network.
