After 36 years as Tempra, the company now becomes part of the nationwide group of refri­ge­ration companies PTG (Perfect Tempe­rature Group).

- PTG Tempra will still be an independent company, but now as an official part of PTG. Tempra as a brand name will be continued through what is today reefer­service, which we now name Tempra­service. We look forward to a new and exciting era with a new profile, says Øyvind Skulstad, General Manager of PTG Tempra.

- Ambitions for the Ålesunds area
PTG develops and delivers environ­men­tally friendly refri­ge­ration, freezing and energy­ef­fi­cient solutions. They have a strong position in industry and the maritime industry, and have long had ambitions to strengthen their presence in the Ålesunds area.

- Here is a strong and innovative industrial cluster within maritime, industry, aquaculture and seafood. Therefore, we are pleased to have the skilled employees of Tempra join the PTG family to develop our products and services in the region, says CEO of PTG, Terje Arnesen.

Hopes for an even more attractive working environment
PTG is considered a pioneer in the use of environ­men­tally friendly refri­gerants both natio­nally and inter­na­tio­nally, and has worked on major projects such as the particle accele­rator for CERN in Switzerland and the seed storage facility on Svalbard.

Øyvind Skulstad is very pleased with the transition, and hopes this will lead to an even more attractive working environment.
