Hepro wins a new tender contract with the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration

Winning this contract is a vote of confidence that we deliver products with the right quality, functionality and price, says Kurt Kristoffersen, CEO of Hepro.

The company´s main office and factory is located in Rognan, and delivers products within the categories mobility and movement and house, household and life. Recent years Hepro has seen significant growth in both revenue and earnings, and with the increased aging of the population, further growth is backed by strong underlying market fundamentals.

- Hepro has focused on product development for several years, and it is satisfying to see that their determined efforts give them a new tender contract with the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration.
