A dynamic company needs driven leadership. This year sees Peak Group AS celebrate 15 years of operations and Jan-Petter Slethaug, the firm’s managing director, is continuing to steer the company in the right direction.
Slethaug (also president of the Norwegian Shipbroker’s Association, established in 1919) has put together a strong team committed to delivering world-class solutions to customers.
“Since our reorganization in 2016, we are constantly improving our systems, growing our chartering team and increasing our fleet,” said Slethaug. “Having recently opened an office in Hamburg, Germany, we are in an even stronger position to better serve our clients as a significant player in the European short sea segment.”
The company owns seven vessels; combined with time-chartered and commercially managed vessels, Peak Group AS has a fleet of approximately 35 vessels.
Based in Bergen, Norway and certified ISO 9001, the Peak Group AS fleet makes approximately 3,500 port calls per year. The fleet consists of modern, fully boxed tonnage for general and project cargoes, and all major bulk commodities including International Maritime Organization-classified cargoes.
The Peak Group AS has multiple subsidiaries. Peak Project Carriers AS was established in 2014 and focuses on the chartering and operations of project cargo. Peak Logistics AS’ business, meanwhile, relates to self-discharging vessels, all equipped with excavators.
Peak Chartering AS focuses on modern multipurpose and bulk vessels whereas Fjeld Consultant AS is a major player in the project and heavy lift cargo markets.
Clients in maritime sectors such as merchant, fishery, cruise, aquaculture and wind are serviced by Peak Marine Tech AS.
Gronberg Ship Management is Peak Group’s ship management company.
“We have a passion for this business and we run our companies in a responsible, ethical and healthy manner,” added Slethaug.
“As we grow our business, invest in our people and win new customers, we will remain a strong commercially driven industry leader. We are very much looking forward to the next 15 years and beyond,” he concluded.
