JOINT VENTURE EGIL BJØRN-HANSEN AS AND TITLESTAD & HAUGER A/S

The two companies behind NorShip Agencies AS have both a long and proud history. Titlestad & Hauger A/S was established in 1920 and has since then been serving mainly the Norwegian shipping community with shipyard agencies and technical products.

An important activity within the packing field as well as bunker agent for Mitsubishi was fisioned out as Tipak A/S. The 1990s saw a succesfull development of the business of particularly Astano in Ferrol, Spain. Svein Ivarson was employed with the company in earlier years and he became a partner in 1990 and is to day the sole owner of Titlestad & Hauger. Svein initiated Navire Cargo Gear, Norway and became managing director of MacGregor, Norway when the two companies merged.

Egil Bjørn-Hansen started his coalbunker agency company in 1933 and added shipyard representations the following year. Shipyards in Spain and the Far East became important agencies from the 1950s and 60s. Tore Bjørn-Hansen had work experience from Singapore, Spain and USA before joining Egil Bjørn-Hansen where he became sole owner in 1987. He has negotiated a number of ship and offshore conversions and is concentrating on this while serving as board member for NorShip Agencies.
