Vestnes companies are a family owned business. It started in 1987 when Mr Jostein, Mrs Eirin and Mr Odd Bjørnset, (Odd is the son of Jostein and Eirin), took over a factory in Vestnesveien 33 in Floroe. The factory was manufacturing electrical heaters for households in addition to the workshop cabinets that we still are manufacturing. Mr Jostein Bjørnset was involved already in 1963 when they moved the production of the heaters from Oslo to Floroe, the company was then called Ekvator. From 1963 to 1987 the company have had several names and Jostein was always involved in the company as a foreman or a production leader but it was first in 1987 they decided to establish the company for themselves and continue the production. Eirin and Odd had also been working in the production for several years as production workers.
In 1989 Vestnes Produkt established an own department for outfitting of interiors on ships as Kleven yard decided to start up building ships in Floroe. In 1994 the other son, Mr Jonny Bjørnset joined the company as an owner. Since then, he has been running the accomodation department.
In 1998 this department was established as a separate company called Vestnes Innredning. Since the startup of the interior outfitting in 1989 we have delivered complete interior solutions to more than 40 vessels such as chemical tankers, juice carriers, coastguards and offshore supply vessels in addition to many rebuilding projects. Vestnes Innredning also established a land based interior department, specializing in furniture for public environments such as offices. We are distributors of furniture from several known manufacturers such as Kinnarps and Savo among others. Our location has been in Leirvaaggt. 1 in Floroe.
In 2007, Jostein and Eirin decided to go out of the ownership in the company. The stocks were taken over by the 3 sons; Odd, Jonny and Roger Bjørnset. Odd and Jonny are active in the company and Roger is running the property company Vestnes Eiendom.
In 2009 we sold the factory in Vestnesveien 33 and moved the production to the same location as Vestnes Innredning in Leirvaaggt 1. In 2010 we built our new administration building and this is now our head office. We are proud to say that we built it ourselves and it has our modern solutions installed. We have our showroom here and new modern office premises.
From the 1st of January 2011 Vestnes Innredning AS will change name to Vestnes Ocean, Vestnes Produkt will change name to Vestnes Land and Vestnes Holding will change name to Vestnes Norway. Vestnes Eiendom will exist as before. Our land based interior solutions will move over to Vestnes Land and Vestnes Produkt`s workshop cabinets will sort under Vestnes Ocean.
