Modis changes name to Akkodis Norway
Energy Valley member Modis changes its name to Akkodis Norway and becomes part of a global consulting and engineering house with 50,000 specialists.
Akkodis Norway is rooted deeply in the local oil and gas sector. It was founded in 1988 under the name Ingeniør Compagniet, offering consultancy services to the oil service industry.
Although Adecco bought the company in 2007 it continued to operate under its initial name until 2020. At that point, Adecco decided to gather its IT & engineering activities under the Modis brand. With the later merger of Modis and AKKA Technologies into Akkodis, Modis Norway is now being renamed Akkodis Norway.
“In many ways, it will be business as usual”, says Managing Director of Akkodis Norway Maj-Britt Løvaas.
“We’ll continue to supply the oil & gas industry with engineering consultants, but just as the sector is changing, so are we,” Løvaas says and adds:
“We are increasingly working with renewable energy and with electrification. For instance, we’re already supplying engineers to the fast-growing battery industry, offshore wind, and to companies working with hydrogen.”
