Rapp Bomek AS enters into its largest contract in the company`s history with Statsbygg to deliver doors and gates to the new National Museum.
Rapp Bomek, a global leader in supplying fire and safety doors for the oil and gas industry, once again shows competitiveness in its new markets, construction and infrastructure, and signs a contract with Statsbygg for the development, delivery and installation of doors and gates to the new National Museum. The contract has a total value of about NOK 123 million and it is the largest single contract ever for Rapp Bomek. The contract award of all nine subcontracts in the competition is a clear confirmation of Rapp Bomek's broad and competitive product range of security solutions, also for the construction and infrastructure market, and that the strategic measures of diversification into additional markets have proven right for the company. Previously, the company has won a contract to deliver major built-in security gates to the new National Museum. These two contracts add up to deliveries of more than NOK 150 million to the new National museum in Oslo.
The new National Museum will be the largest art museum in the Nordic region and one of the few buildings that can use the term “FutureBuilt role-model-project”. Being part of a “FutureBuilt collaboration” requires that the new national museum is a future-oriented building with environmentally friendly solutions that are sustainable over time. The new building will mark the National Museum as an art and cultural provider of international format and will be Norway's largest cultural building. The new National Museum will open to the public in 2020 and the major part of Rapp Bomek’s deliveries will take place in 2018.
"We are very proud to be awarded all nine subcontracts to the new National Museum from Statsbygg, and it gives us an important and positive confirmation of the strategic measures initiated in 2016," said CEO Terje Bøe.
“Rapp Bomek has developed from being a product supplier to the oil and gas industry to a comprehensive security solution-provider for several markets, including construction, infrastructure and security markets. There has been hard work over time in the organization, where the focus has been on establishing a strong market position in the new markets, as well as serving the traditional oil and gas markets. I am proud to lead an organization that, with this contract to the new National Museum, has taken a major step into this market through the strategic measures we have implemented. We are rewarded today with the largest single contract Rapp Bomek ever have been awarded and it is very satisfactory after a challenging time in the oil and gas market," says Terje Bøe.
“For us as active owners, it is pleasant to note that the company and its management have succeeded to take Rapp Bomek from being a globally leading product supplier to the oil and gas industry to succeed also in establishing a market position as a solution provider in completely different markets. In many ways, I think, Rapp Bomek is a striking example of how technology developed for demanding offshore operations can be adapted to meet the very high security requirements we encounter in parts of the construction sector, tunnel projects, defence and securing of public places," says Rapp Bomek’s chairman and managing partner in Nord Kapitalforvaltning, Bjørn Hesthamar.
