Norsafe – Jørgensen & Vik AS is one of the oldest boat-building companies in Norway. The company began building lifeboats in Grimstad on the south coast of Norway in 1903. The first boats produced were wooden, followed by aluminium until 1958 when fibreglass took over completely. In the beginning, only open lifeboats were manufactured. Totally enclosed lifeboats were introduced in the 1960s, and in the 1980s, the company started the development of a range of free-fall boats and fast rescue boats with davits.In 1990, Jørgensen & Vik AS relocated its operations in south Norway from Grimstad to Arendal where the company has three large factories. The company changed name to Norsafe AS in 1992 and is marketing the products around the world under this name.
Since it was founded in 1903, the company has supplied more than 15 000 lifeboats to the global ship and offshore markets.
The company has its own design department with highly skilled and experienced designers and engineers who work on new product development, customisation, quality control and testing.
