‘Whilst we are excited about the future, we are also committed to ensuring we honour our heritage. We have an incredible team of 400 people, many of whom have been a part of the Kongsberg family for more than 30 years. The Kongsberg values that are important to our customers – the strength, the performance, the longevity of the machine – will endure.’
‘Sales, service, consumables and spare parts will all continue as usual,’ added Stuart. ‘Customers will receive the same level of service during the transition and they can look forward to business as usual throughout 2021.
‘We will continue investing in our table technology, and in the coming months we will be showcasing the latest developments with our automation solutions.’
