Before the turning of the millennium there were four herring factories at the Port of Skagen.
They were competitors, each one minding their own business and never spoke to each other. Until one day when they were proposed to accompany each other to the same fishing fair in England.
At the fair they sat down and had a beer and a chat with Saga Shipping, the company, that had offered the invitation.
They agreed that they might very well meet and talk at home as well. Maybe even collaborate once in a while for the common good? The four herring manufacturers decided to give it a try. And when they came back home, they helped each other unloading the next ship that came to the port with its load.
All four of them had their business going, the ship was unloaded faster, and the increased efficiency was rumoured. And as a final result, more fish were landed in Skagen.
This is how the network, which today is called Serviceteam Skagen, came about. And in the summer of 2019, we celebrated our 20th anniversary.
Over the years, the four herring manufacturers have been joined by nearly 50 other companies that deal with everything from port service to supplies, shipbuilding, and whatever else is needed in the maritime industry.
Through the network, member companies can get help recruiting apprentices, acquiring skilled labour, boosting their marketing, attending trade fairs, and simply getting to know each other at some of the social events throughout the year.
“Many things can be dealt with, while drinking a beer in each other’s company,” says the chairman of the network, Peter Møller from Saga Shipping. “The network brings together the companies in Skagen across industries and it helps us to stand as a united group, so that the customers can make do with one stop. That is what we are here for.”
