Bertel O. Steen is the oldest and largest company in the Nordic region representing international defence industry for major military projects in Norway. Our manufacturers develop and produce products and systems of the highest quality to the defence and law enforcement sector in Norway and other countries. Our portfolio includes areas such as submarines, surface ships, small arms, military vehicles, battle tanks, artillery, ammunition, CBRN and air defence systems.
As an adviser and representative of a number of major, world class, international defence manufacturers, we are responsible for a number of tasks for our manufacturers within business development in Norway.
We work long-term with the major investment programs in the Armed Forces and the Police and help secure our manufacturers significant contracts in Norway, which ensure that the Armed Forces and the Police receive the best possible solutions for their needs. We have been involved in many of the largest acquisitions to the Norwegian Armed Forces in the past decades.
In our team we have dedicated people with a broad military background from all branches, military acquisition agency and the defence industry. This mix of profiles enables us to cover a wide range of procurement programs and to understand, analyse and interact in the various phases of the procurement process.
When offset obligations are involved in an acquisition program, it is important for the suppliers to have a good understanding of the rules and practices, and to work systematically within this field as part of the positioning strategy.
We have more than 40 years of experience working with the industry in Norway and abroad, to solve offset obligations for international suppliers to military programs in Norway.
Our network within the industry and the Armed forces – coupled with insight and understanding of the Norwegian offset regulations – enable us to work professionally, structured and long term with offset and industrial collaboration issues for our partners, before and after the contract is awarded.
