Firenor International AS, has acquired technology company Matre Maskin AS, thereby strengthening our position as a supplier of fire safety equipment.

Bømlo-based Matre Maskin is a provider of specialized products and systems for active fire suppression to global customers within the energy sector, and in recent years, it has also made significant deliveries to the offshore wind power industry.
