The assets and activities in the seafood processing machinery company Norbech A/S have been sold to a new owner

Norbech A/S was declared bankrupt last month and has now been sold to a new owner so that the activities in Norbech can continue as a significant player in the seafood and fishing industries.

For a number of years, Norbech has developed and produced machines for various processes in the industry.

Norbech will now be re-established going forward under the name Uni-Food Technic A/S, which is the former name of Norbech A/S.

UNI-Food Technic is thus resurrected with new owners in the form of two experienced business leaders who enter the company with the clear aim of strengthening and developing its position on the market.

The majority owner and director of the new company, Jeppe Christensen, said: “We want to create a well-functioning company by building on the competent employees, key products and loyal customers who have formed the core of Norbech for many years.

“Our approach is to establish a solid financial foundation for the company, so that Uni-Food Technic can be developed to be even more relevant for our customers and a healthy workplace.”

Jeppe Christensen takes over as managing director and board member with an ownership stake of 51%.

With a background as Group Sales Director at Carsoe for the past eight years, he brings a depth experience which will help to realise Uni-Food Technics’ full potential.

Leif Andersen, a former partner in Uni Food Technic, joins the business as a passive partner and board member with an ownership stake of 49%.

He also founded and managed Intech International A/S until 2022, when the company was sold.

A statement added: “A new, solid foundation for Uni-Food Technics has thus been created, and the company can now look forward to realising new goals and visions.”

Curator Jens Højmark, lawyer and owner-partner at HjulmandKaptain, said: “We experienced exceptionally high interest in the purchase of the bankrupt company’s assets and activities, confirming that the company had sound values and products that the buyer can build upon. Congratulations to the buyer on the deal.”

Several employees and significant assets and activities have been transferred in connection with the sale.
