Flexibridge with new people on the bridge
Monday, 6th September 2021
After several years of standstill, it is with great joy and pride we can announce that Flexibridge is once again ready to offer its product to the maritime market!
Sveinung Pile is employed as Managing Director of the company and has started the job of emerging the company back to the surface again. Much of the work has consisted of organizing the warehouses and systematizing production drawings, but there has also been room for contacting a few of the former customers: “Already in the first conversation with a former customer of Flexibridge, I got the feeling that this is a company that has been missed by its clients. The history of the company is simply impressive and being able to take the lead in this new chapter in Flexibridge's history is a task I look upon with great enthusiasm and joy" Sveinung comments.
The work of rebuilding Flexibridge is well underway, and the company already paid a visit to the impressive fishing fair Aqua-Nor in Trondheim. The presence at the fair was mainly to establish new contact with former customers and acquaintances of the company. "The fishing industry has been and will be very important to Flexibridge. We have previously been a main supplier of bridge solutions to many shipping companies, and it is incredibly motivating to see the reception we have received from former customers after touching base about the new investment” says Sveinung. Even though the company didn’t perform any active sale the past years we are proud to say we delivered module-based bridge consoles to the well-known hybrid well-boat “Ro Vision” back in 2020, also awarded with the ship of the year award, Sveinung continues.
The forthcoming months will be occupied in further development of the product range and to launch exciting product solutions for new and existing customers.

Flexibridge has its origins in Haugesund, Norway, where it was once founded in 2000 by the company Hatteland. In 2004 the company was taken over by Steinsvik Group. In recent times, the company has not operated any form of active sales and its product has only been delivered to a few loyal customers. Among the customers, the company is known for delivering quality at the highest level and they are preferred by many shipowners and yards along the Norwegian coast. The product range mainly consists of workstations and bridge solutions for navigation, operation, and control of the bridge.
