Our history

  • 1966–1975

    Emerging from a small family enterprise producing cranes, Total Transportation Systems was established in 1966. Later, the name was shortened to TTS. Today our name is Nekkar.

    TTS became the first Norwegian company to act on the improved relations between China and the West.

  • 1976–1985

    The delivery of cargo handling solutions to a car carrier in 1984 marked the beginning of a climb to a world-leading position as provider of access system for this highly specialized segment.

  • 1986–1995

    After years of dwindling order intake due to a declining Norwegian shipbuilding industry, large contracts in 1988 marked a new turning point.

    TTS was listed on Oslo Stock Exchange in 1995.

  • 1996–2005

    An acquisition in 1996 kicked off a period of acquisition-driven growth. Target segments, product portfolio and operations were heavily expanded.

  • 2006–2018

    The drilling package provider Sense EMD was aquired and sold on to Cameron with a sound profit.

    Nekkar became the leading player in the heavy-lift market and a network of service hubs were set up.

    Operations in China and Korea were strengthened.

  • 2019-Today

    In 2019, a larger part of our activities was sold to MacGregor, and our name was changed to Nekkar.

    A new strategic direction was set to leverage the group’s superior engineering,
    electrification, automation and digitalisation heritage from “Drilling Bay” in Kristiansand, to develop disruptive technologies that can make high-growth industry sectors more sustainable, productive and profitable

Nekkar is committed to push for new innovative and sustainable solutions through cutting edge technologies
