Molde - The Town of Roses
Molde, on the Romsdalsfjord, is renowned for its beautiful surroundings and spectacular views. Molde offers good living conditions for its inhabitants with a wealth of possibilities for leisure and recreational activities in both summer and winter. The town has a rich cultural life and colleges providing education at university level.
Molde has good communications by sea, land and air. From Molde Airport Årø, there are flight connections to the largest hubs in Norway. Both the Northbound and Southbound Coastal Express Ferries (Hurtigruten) call at Molde every day. There are express bus services to several destinations. Ferries and express boats regularly cross the Romsdalsfjord for connections to South and West Norway by car or bus.
Molde has long been a port of call for cruise ships, and the town was one of the main attractions when the first cruise ship with paying passengers visited Norway in 1882. Every summer, a large number of cruise ships ranging from small and exclusive vessels to some of the world’s largest cruise liners, call at Molde harbour.
Several of the world’s leading companies in the marine industry have their roots in the county of Møre & Romsdal,where Molde is the capital town. Our environment, the fisheries and offshore oil industry, have triggered a development in the marine industry which is hard to find elsewhere. The teamwork between shipowners, ship consultants, shipyards, ship equip-ment manufacturers and other parties is unique. Each part of this marine cluster has been challenging the other parts to develop equipment with ever-increasing performance. We at Brunvoll are proud to be part of this cluster.
The human resources of this area are a valuable asset highly appreciated by local industry.
Education and recruitment in marine technology flourish here, and staff are loyal to the district and their employers
