30 years of service

After 30 years of service, our CEO Nina Pettersen was given a well deserved honour yesterday. She was one of the first employees in Betongbolt AS, a company which today is known as Pretec. Founder and chairman Even Karlsen brought flowers and the Norwegian service medal for her long and great efforts for Pretec. At the beginning, when the only two people in the company was Even and Nina, she was responsible for accounting, order processing and cleaning. Since that time she has tackled every possible challenge in her way. – Nina deserves all the credit she can get. She has been with us through the entire journey, and she is very good at what I don’t do. I am very happy that Nina has been with us all these years and that her knowledge and work effort have stayed with the company. We would without doubt not have seen the level of success in Pretec without Nina. From all of us in Pretec, congratulations on your anniversary, Nina!

Christmas 2019

New high-temperature HDG line

In 2016 we started production in our top modern low-temperature hot-dip galvanizing (HDG) facility in our  factory in China. Now we are installing a new high-temperature HDG facility that will be ready for production during July 2019. The high-temperature facility is specially designed for HDG of threaded rods and threaded rebar bolts in up to 3m lengths, without any necessary treatment after HDG. This will also increase our HDG capacity significantly. The facility is designed and built to comply with all current environmental demands. This is another addition for our company to extend our own production capabilities. We now have both mechanical production of rebar bolts, 2 HDG facilities and powder coating facilities under the same roof. The pictures are taken during installation of the new high-temperature hot-dip galvanizing facility before production start.
