“We find ScaleAQ as an attractive and competent partner with interesting products and philosophy. We believe closer and long-term collaboration with suppliers will create value for Cermaq and the suppliers. Having agreed on terms and prices for defined products, allows Cermaq to have efficient procurement processes and focus on its main operations as well as ensuring us the best possible tools to deliver optimal results,” he added.

ScaleAQ said it was already present with service teams, advisors and in Cermaq’s farming regions, but looked forward to work even closer in the years to come.

“This is a two year agreement that can be extended and give us predictability and continuity to focus on assisting Cermaq with improving operations through collaborative development on solutions that are important for Cermaq. ScaleAQ was founded to be a competent partner that understands our client’s challenges and needs, and that can support them locally within our different business areas. We are really pleased and grateful that Cermaq chose ScaleAQ for a global agreement,” said ScaleAQ Chief Commercial Officer Stig Førre.
