OSK-ShipTech celebrates 50th anniversary
On Friday, September 16, OSK-Ship Tech A/S can celebrate half a century as maritime consultants. It has also been a journey of evolution from a company that was founded and headed by a single man into a growing organization.
Director of the firm Anders Ørgaard has owned and managed OSK-ShipTech in the last 13 years since he took over the maritime consulting firm founded by Ole Steen Knudsen in 1966. Since its inception the company has been at the forefront of technical progress and innovation in both the design process and with the finalized vessels.
"We strive to continue to be ahead and encourage our people to be curious and exploratory. Curiosity and a professional mindset makes it fun to come to work, but it also leads to innovative ideas and new design and technical solutions, and it is the foundation of our business. We live by ideas and we sell our knowledge," says Anders Ørgaard.
Today, OSK-Ship Tech A/S employs more than 50 naval architects, designers, etc., which is a tripling of the staff since 2003.
"We have grown significantly over the years and have attracted the best Danish and international staff, and we have a good work culture," says Anders Ørgaard.
Besides a big anniversary party for employees and their partners, OSK-ShipTech will host a reception for customers and business partners on Friday, September 16.
