F.A.Q

When was the company established, and who did that?

The Norwegian mother company was officially established in December 2009, although its first turnover and active operations began in March 2010. The company was founded by Bjørn Nerli. The Polish division was founded in December 2013, and it was established by Dag Nerli.

What is the story of company’s name?

In the absence of suitable name alternatives, the decision was made to use the family’s last name, Nerli. This choice was influenced by the fact that Bjørn Nerli had been involved in the project business since the early 1990s in the Oslo area. The company saw an opportunity to leverage Bjørn Nerli’s well-established reputation in the local Oslo market by using their surname.

Where is the company originally from?
Oslo, Norway.

How was the company created, and what was the reason behind its inception?
The company’s inception can be traced back to a pivotal moment. Bjørn Nerli, the founder, was motivated to start the company after a difference in vision with a prior organization. In 2007, he was engaged to develop a strategy for the Norwegian sun shading project market to enhance business growth. However, the perspectives he presented did not align with the organization’s overall vision. This led to his departure. Driven by his belief in his approach, Bjørn Nerli decided to establish the company in his later years. In August 2011, Dag Nerli joined the Norwegian company and has since played a pivotal role in its growth. Over the last 12 years, he has expanded the company from a small operation in 2011 to the structured organization we see today.

What are the key activities or differences in what we do in Norway versus Poland?
In Norway, our primary focus is on sales and installations, and it serves as the hub for top management’s daily operations. On the other hand, our Polish division is where we see significant development in terms of products, machines, and long-term strategies. Poland plays a pivotal role as the hub from which we aim to expand internationally. This strategic decision is based on logistical advantages and historical proximity to larger markets, making it a strategic gateway for our global ambitions.
