Aksis Fire appoints new agent in Norway
Turkey based Aksis Fire was recently celebrating its 1000th system delivery, designed and installed in 475 ships since the company was founded in 1994. Being one of the first local Fire Fighting Systems designers and suppliers in Turkey’s shipbuilding industry, Aksis Fire have maintained strong and reliable partnership with its customers.
Over the last few years, Aksis Fire has become a reliable company serving the international shipbuilding market as well as the national market. The company now designs and supplies a total solution of water, foam, dry chemicals and clean gas-based fire extinguishing systems for ships internal and external fire protection systems as well as fire detection & alarm systems.
Aksis Fire is now teaming up with Norwegian based Aalesund Maritime, a newly established company that was founded to represent principals outside Norway, who want to penetrate the Norwegian maritime market.
Bener Bás, Managing Director from Aksis elaborates “With clients like Svitzer, Esvagt, Tidewater, Volstad, Østensjø and Buksér og Berging, we need to be present in Scandinavia. Our company is in a very positive development and we expect to increase orders substantially over the coming years. Aalesund Maritime is the perfect choice to support this development, Ole is a professional, he has ambition and he has the experience required for success.”
Ole André Grebstad, who has a background in the maritime industry as sailing engineer for companies like RCCL and Farstad Shipping and shore-based experience from companies like Rolls-Royce, Ulstein and MAN Diesel & turbo comments “I noticed that the Managing Director from MARPRO was looking for an agent on behalf of his client Aksis Fire and we had a dialogue about the potential. I then spoke to Bener Bás and carefully evaluated products, systems and prices. Based on the information, my conclusion was that this is a solid brand that offers great value for money. I am actually already by now, in dialogue with several interested clients in Norway”.
Managing Director Jakob le Fevre, MARPRO Search & Selection explains “I have overseen building up and maintaining agent network in the maritime business world-wide several times through my career. It is a time-consuming process because it is hard to identify the potential partners that delivers real value. I am using this experience now, paired with our strong communication channels to communicate with the market, to find potential partners for my clients”.
