Our partnership with Nordic Platform secures a vast number of development opportunities. It is pure logic to take the next step with Nordic Platform.

Massive international Growth potential

The collaboration with Turner Access can without a doubt ensure an international scale-up for Nordic Platform & ensure that their revolutionary product expands in both the onshore & offshore industry Per Mose Jacobsen Managing Director at Nordic Platform explains.

Turner entered the partnership because both companies has a need to collaborate in order to deliver the perfectly combined solution. It is a grand sign of approval of both our company & our unique composite solution. The partnership with Turner Access ensures that we develop an offshore kit that combines our strengths. I am proud that Nordic Platform succeeded in landing a partnership with a giant such as Turner Access.

Nordic Platform has from the very beginning experienced growth on the international scene & the company was picked as one of the 10 finalist companies at Scale-Up Denmark’s Centre for Offshore Industry for that particular reason:

Norway gave us our first order & it is ironic but since the beginning, our greatest success has been internationally. Austria & New Zealand are also on our order list… We have to act now & run with it while the opportunities are here. That is also the reason why we applied for the Scale-Up Denmark program – we have to act, grow & develop now.

Innovation is born in the collaboration between the giant & the innovator

As a finalist in Scale-Up Denmark Centre for Offshore Industry. Nordic Platform goes through a program where the company exactly as needed gains access to larger & more experienced corporates & develop their business through intensive training focused on scaling the company’s business base.

Nordic Platform truly has the right cards to deal when it comes to scaling their company. That is one of the key factors when we choose the finalists for our grand competition. The market potential is massive for Nordic Platform & they bring innovation to an industry that has been almost staling when it comes to development for the past 20 years. We know they deliver top quality & we see a huge potential for development. Lisbeth Valther, Responsible for Scale-up Denmark.

An anchor point in the Scale-Up Denmark growth program where large corporates are connected to the finalist SME’s & Startups. Is to create new partnerships for Development. The grand partnership with Turner Access was ensured based on a serious & committed effort from Nordic Platform, & it clearly emphasizes their potential for & the quality of their product.

Now Nordic Platform & Turner Access dive deep into the development process & use our department for design & development to find the perfect integrated solution of our respective products.
