Bandak was established in Kongsberg in 1938 and moved to Lunde in 1963. Bandak has since developed into a high technology company with a highly skilled workforce that takes pride in meeting customers’ needs. The company has approximately 80 employees. Complex details and system deliveries are supplied worldwide from modern and well-equipped production premises measuring 12,000 m2. The business has a fully equipped workshop for turning, milling and grinding, together with a well-developed inspection, assembly, flushing and testing department. In addition to its own welding department with plasma welding, the company also has a large surface department, which supplies thermal coating. A modern ERP system and CAD/CAM systems are used to plan and control the overall operation. The bulk of the products supplied by the company are supplied to the Oil & Gas industry, but it is also a much valued supplier of highly complex products for the maritime-, defence- and general/onshore industry. Bandak is, for many, synonymous with Taut Wire; a product developed and produced in Lunde and which can be found in all of the world’s oceans. The Taut Wire from Bandak ensures that vessels maintain their exact position, e.g. diver support vessels, cable laying vessels and supply ships.
