Vélfag produces the majority of parts that make up our fish processing machines themselfs, everything from knifes to nuts and bolts.
Vélfags production team is still going strong in Ólafsfjörður, but as the company has recently expanded in Akureyri, production has also started up within the new facilities in Baldursnes 2.
Vélfag has invested in brand new milling and lathe machines to produce the parts needed for creating the entire Marin line.
Machines VM 6030L and SL 8II are welcome additions to the Vélfag family. The machines were designed by Milltronics USA.
After arrival, the Vélfags team worked to position the machines while Milltronics technicians made sure that startup went as smoothly as possible.
Both machines are now in regular use and are proving to be a great company investment!
Þórdís Kolbrún R. Gylfadóttir Iceland’s minister of Tourism, Industry and Innovation payed Vélfag a visit today along with four other politicians and their associates.
After a short introduction of the company, the group was given a tour of the new offices in Akureyri.
The Vélfag team would like to thank Þórdís Kolbrún and everyone else for taking the time to visit the company on this very snowy Monday!
Vélfag has been growing at a steady pace but is still a small family run business at its core. The following Forbes article highlights the benefits of working for a small company, and why everyone should consider making the switch from commercial to community.
