Matchmaking program Business to Business, Norway-Russia: full speed - new possibilities
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
"Company Bergknapp AS is a producer and provider of so-called “green roofs” in the Norwegian market. Since the establishment in 2009, we have built up a production facility of about 80.000 sqm, located at Jæren in Rogaland. We focus on thin green roofs, also called sedum roofs. In order to produce sedum roofs we buy components abroad, therefore we need to have partners with stable and secure deliveries of such components.
By chance, we came across the Norwegian-Russian Chamber of Commerce – in a relation to a purchase from Russia. The relationship with NRCC became of decisive importance for us in order to make such a deal with the Russian provider. The NRCC’s MMP B2B program manager in Oslo was “hands on“ from the very beginning and led us through legislation, rules and business culture in the two countries, which helped us to make a company visit very successful. It was very reassuring to have the NRCC at our side while concluding contracts. For us this business deal would have been difficult to make without the help from NRCC."
