Egersund Group Fishing: From Hobby to Business

Over 70 years ago, in 1952, Egersund Group Fiskeri began its journey in the coastal town of Egersund, Norway. What started as a modest hobby in a small workshop quickly transformed into a business focused on tanning and impregnating herring nets. Little did we know, it would become a pioneering company in the fishing industry.

Transformative Years

 
Two years after our establishment, we introduced the Mongtrålen, an innovative fishing gear that significantly influenced the industry’s future. By 1958, we shifted from providing mere repair services to full-scale production.
 
In the 1960s, the surge in herring fishing motivated us to grow and establish ourselves further. The 'Kolmule-bonanza' of 1972 marked a new era for us. Our motto, 'No one too small, no one too big,' became a guiding principle. By 1975, we had grown significantly, capable of serving all kinds of customers. In the 1990s, our venture into international waters with Pollock fishing in Alaska showcased our adaptability and growth in a changing industry.

Expanding Our Reach

 
The new millennium marked significant growth for us. In 1999, we established Egersund Herøy, followed by Egersund Ísland in 2004, and Meløy Notbøteri in 2010. By 2016, we had opened a branch in Hvaler and expanded into Denmark in 2018 with locations in Hanstholm, Thyborøn, and Hvide Sande. In 2019, we launched Greenline Fishing Gear and Egersund Trawl DK, continuing our tradition of innovation and excellence.
 

Our Community

 
At Egersund Group, our people are our greatest asset. Many of our employees have spent their entire careers with us, building a strong workplace culture. We operate around the clock, always striving to meet our customers' needs with dedication and care.
 
One of our dedicated employees is Per Gunnar Nygård. He has been with Meløy Notbøteri for almost 20 years, becoming a cornerstone of this subsidiary of Egersund Group Fiskeri.

– We are good at tackling challenges together because we all work towards common goals, creating a positive and productive work environment, says Per Gunnar Nygård, foreman at Meløy Notbøteri.
