Our company has for the second time been awarded the award, ÆRESBEVIS, by OKMF (Training Office for Mechanical subjects). The first award we received in 2011 to have brought an apprentice to a very well-passed exam in the subject Toolmaker.
The honor certificate is a tribute to all member companies in OKMF, which creates a good learning environment, and has shown determination and dedication to develop skilled professionals with very well-passed examinations.
The first to have a link to the website on the certificates from NEMKO
The organization was challenged by Nemko’s auditor at the re-certification audit 2-3. October 2017. “Is the organization ready to sell its scope and compliance in a new modern certificate text of only 3 lines”, ask the auditor? We threw the ball back to the auditor about the possibility of using the link to the website in connection with the text on the certificate. The auditor thought that the time has come for asking the question to Nemko! “If so, KMG will be the first to have a link to the website”, the auditor encouraged.
At the very beginning of November we received mail from the manager of Nemko’s certification department that the link to the website in the certificate was a very good proposal that would be fulfilled. We immediately sent the suggestion for new text to the certificates.
The certificates with new text and link to the website were updated and signed by Nemko’s Manager of Certification Department on November 3, 2017.

Jubilee trip to Svalbard
Teambuilding 13-15. October 2017
In connection with our 100th anniversary, the company arranged a trip to Svalbard for all employees.
As part of strengthening the team spirit of the KMG team, we chose a trip completely out of the ordinary.
Among the activities was arctic deep sea fishing, ATV driving, polar expedition with MS Langesund, brewery visits, coal mines, dog sledding and many other cultural events. With a low cloud cover, it seemed unlikely that we would see the northern lights, but with all the luck the low cloud cover opened and a beautiful green light phenomenon turned out. We could not have asked for a more amazing start to our anniversary trip.
HAAS Turning Center
KMG is starting the new year by investing in new technology. When the requisition of a brand new HAAS DS 30ssy Dual Spindle Turning Center/Lathe saw a much shorter expected delivery time than anticipated, Team KMG had to come up with some quick solutions in week 10 of the year. With prompt planning, timely initiative, and goal oriented decisions, parts of our production and tool department were broken apart and reassembled to account for the coming addition.
On the morning of Friday March 10th, the expectations of the whole company were high. Ask Industri Montasje AS was present to handle a risk-free movement of the wonder machine. At around 8 am, a semi-truck with Dutch plates pull up to the gates with the expected delivery. After a thorough analysis by the experts, the movement of the HAAS DS from the truck to gate 3 began. New technology is a reality.
