Christopher Carlsen, General Manager Kongsberg Ferrotech

The history of
Uvdal Maskinfabrikk

Entrepreneur Arve Flatin and investor Karl H. Høie established Uvdal Maskinfabrikk AS (UMF) in 1987. At the time, the defence industry in Kongsberg was the main market for the company. 

The business eventually turned towards oil and Subsea. With its constant development and growth, UMF became one of the driving forces behind the construction of Nore and Uvdal Næringspark, which was move-in ready in 2000. In 2008, Arve G Flatin AS acquired the entire ownership, and the company was 100% locally owned. 

With an undeviating quality focus and solid professional expertise over a number of years, UMF has established itself as a world-class Norwegian supplier. 

The company is currently 100% family owned through Arve G Flatin AS, and is still located in Uvdal – centrally in Southern Norway. With a strong focus on further development, together with long-term focus and a great commitment to business development and local jobs, the strategy and business are continuously adapted for the future.
