The agreement has a duration of four years plus possible extensions and will strengthen the relationship between the companies and make trade more efficient.
“We’re very pleased that Mowi, as the industry’s largest salmon breeder, have chosen to invest in us as one of its suppliers. The frame agreement will make the procurement of goods and services from AKVA group more predictable, easy and timesaving for both parties, and also give a good basis to further develop our cooperation within other areas like project-based activities, says Hans-Øyvind Sagen, Sales Director Nordic in AKVA group.

The agreement, which was signed this week, comprises procurement of standard products, spare parts and service assignments. It does not imply any exclusivity to AKVA group but will through its negotiated terms provide a good basis for trade between the parties.
“AKVA group is a large and important supplier to Mowi and has many of the products and services that we require to operate salmon farms. This agreement will strengthen our relationship and benefit both AKVA group and Mowi. A close supplier is better equipped to understand what we need. We also believe that partners that have clear lines and are able to achieve a good dialogue, will cooperate well and achieve improvements and innovation for both parties,” says Procurement Manager in Mowi, Erik Kjær Mjøs.
