Unfortunately, due to Covid, our team was not allowed to enter Norway at that time and we inspected all machines and equipment by a Virtual Meeting, with the manager showing us each machine and its accessories from many different angles. We immediately were impressed by the quality and high upkeep of the machines and soon afterwards entered into a Purchase Agreement.
