Rapp Bomek AS continues to strenghten its position in new markets and will provide security doors to the new National Museum

September 2017: Rapp Bomek, a market leader in fire and safety doors primarily for the oil and gas industry, last year took strategic steps towards entering new markets to diversify and ensure further growth. As one of several outcomes of this, we are pleased to announce that Rapp Bomek has secured a significant contract with AF Gruppen for the delivery of security doors to the new National Museum. Previously, the company also won a contract to provide security doors to the new Munch Museum.

The new National Museum becomes the largest art museum in the Nordic region and one of the few buildings that can be called a "FutureBuilt" project. Being part of a FutureBuilt partnership requires the new National Museum to be a future-oriented building with environmental friendly solutions that are durable over time. The new building will mark the National Museum as an art and cultural provider of international format and will be Norway's largest cultural building. The National Museum is planned to open in 2020.

The contract value is around 26 million, and Rapp Bomek will deliver 18 telescope gates and 34 slide gates to the project. 25 of these will be manufactured at the factory in Bodø and the other gates will be sourced from a subcontractor. The project is an EPCIC delivery, which means that Rapp Bomek supplies everything from design/engineering, production, installation and preparation to the operational phase.

- We are proud to be awarded this strategically important contract by AF Gruppen. It is satisfying to register that we win contracts and prove our competitiveness also within our new market initiatives. There has been a lot of work in the company during the past year to position ourselves into new markets in building and construction, and this shows that we are on the right track, says Terje Bøe, CEO of Rapp Bomek.
