Key platform

Fishing gear manufacturer Hampiðjan works hard to stay at the forefront of technical development. Today the company has customers in practically every major fishery in the world.

The list of Hampiðjan's achievements is a striking one, ranging from self-spreading ropes and innovative trawl gear designs to the key factor of the materials used for constructing a variety of fishing gears.

'We have an ongoing programme of research and development,' said Hampiðjan's Haraldur Árnason. 'It's not enough to develop something new. It's crucial to maintain the momentum and constantly seek to improve, taking advantage of new opportunities as they arise.'

The company has been a regular and highly visible presence at IceFish, taking part in every exhibition since its beginnings more than thirty years ago.
'IceFish is an absolutely key platform for us,' he said.

'This is the only event of its kind that brings many of our customers to Iceland, giving us a unique opportunity to meet and discuss their needs and requirements face-to-face.'
