Since the beginning of the 1990's, the technology company GSGroup has had a steady and good growth and has gone from a local to an international player in the market. Now they have their eyes on Bergen.
GSGroup AS started the new year 2020 with a new office in brand new and modern premises on popular Kalfaret in the city of Bergen. The office will be the 15th in line.
Since the beginning of the 1990's, the technology company has been in the driving seat when it comes IoT / sensor technology and modern solutions for order management. In a short time, GSGroup has become a leading European supplier, with offices in nine countries.
Bergen, which is located in the Western part of Norway, represents a significant share of the growth engine in Norwegian business and industry. That is why it is natural for Norwegian-owned GSGroup to locate themselves here, says Business Unit Manager Norway, Stein Olav Skarbø.
- A local presence brings us closer to our existing customers and makes us better equipped to supply new and ever-growing customer groups with modern IoT solutions that guarantee productivity growth. The energy industry has taken its foot off the brake, and has a renewed focus on efficiency and reduced capital tied up, and we believe that our office in Bergen has attractive solutions to offer this industry as well.
A need for more skilled employees
Starting a new office naturally means that more colleagues are needed, and GSGroup put out an add last year that got a very positive response. Skarbø says they wanted many different types of people and emphasize that is precisely that composition that makes GSGroup the international player the company is today.
- We have succeeded in attracting many talented, new employees in presales, sales, aftersales, customer care and technical services such as installation, training and solution setup. We have reason to believe that there will be a need for more skilled people as the company continues to grow, says Skarbø.
