ALMACO has been praised by customers for flexibility, responsiveness and innovation. Stenwall adds, “A longtime customer once told me, `You perform miracles while others are standing by waiting´, and that’s probably the customer quote that I personally cherish the most”.

Collaborating with the best in the industry
We have established strong relationships with some of the most prestigious shipyards and owners in the world. We have worked on projects ranging from cruise ships, ferries, megayachts and expedition vessels to offshore rigs, platforms and support vessels.

“We are honored to collaborate with the best in the industry. Our customer focus and our team’s dedication are the foundation of ALMACO’s success. We always aim to deliver outstanding results that delight and impress our customers,” says Vilhelm Roberts, Co-owner and Executive Chairman of the Board of ALMACO Group. Stenwall adds, “One of our most recent achievements was a project delivery for Chantiers de l’Atlantique and MSC Cruises, for which Chantiers awarded us their esteemed Best Supplier Award for the laundry areas. We are very proud and honored to have received the award.”

Focus on new innovations, digitalization and sustainability
Looking ahead, ALMACO is committed to staying at the forefront of technology and sustainability in the marine and offshore industries. We are developing digital solutions that enhance the efficiency, performance and safety of our products and services. We are also constantly developing new ways of helping our customers comply with both current and future environmental regulations and serve their customers in the best possible way.

“Good quality and longevity of the equipment have a major impact on sustainability. We design our products to last longer, consume less energy and reduce waste. We believe that sustainability is not only good for the planet, but also good for business,” Stenwall concludes.
