Our headquarters are strategically situated in Sandnes, Norway which is in close proximity to Stavanger, which is the major centre for the oil and gas industry in Norway. We are supported by facilities in based in 12 countries on 4 continents.
SFF have experienced a rapid expansion during its existence and we feel that much of this expansion can be accredited to our company philosophy “Bringing the manufacturer to the client”. Our staff has increased from 5 employees the first year to the current total of 160 employees and 12 owned office/warehouse facilities.
In addition to our facilities in Norway, SFF benefits also from being affiliated with the well known Galperti group. This assists us in rapidly sourcing non-stock or special items, from our 19 sister companies, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our philosophy is to meet our clients demands and offer “value added services” by presenting a comprehensive and globally competitive supply chain. This results in not only satisfying contract demands, but also develops innovative, cost effective solutions that are tailored to our customer’s individual needs.
With the ever changing and developing requirements of our clients, SFF, together with our manufacturing partners, offer much more than just the supply of products. With an early understanding of the clients project needs we can recommend and offer engineering solutions that optimize results and assist in long design life and reduce installation times, providing an efficient, cost effective system.
