Serigstadgården in 1864

When Andreas H. Serigstad was born in 1844, the farm at Frøylandsvatnet had belonged to the family for more than 300 years.

Second generation leader

Jens A. Serigstad (1887–1975) led the Serigstad Maskinverksted through dramatic and turbulent times, from 1910 to 1956. Here he is in full concentration with the development of a lift for straw in 1952.


The first years with Jens A. Serigstad at the helm of the family business were tough. Jens was young and ambitious. Courage and faith in the future were crucial. The business owner had what it took, even to ask the brothers for their signature on the guarantor papers. The Serigstad family was strong and had faith in the future.

Third generation leaders

The brothers Torkel (1925–2014) and Andreas (1919–2003) Serigstad were heads of Serigstad Maskinverksted, later Serigstad AS, from 1956. Andreas was the commercial manager, and Torkel was the technical manager.


Andreas was 37 years old and had worked in the company since returning from Germany in 1940. He had been accounting manager for several years, in addition to sales and general business management in the company. Torkel was six years younger and turned 31 the same year he became company owner. He had spent holidays and vacations in the company and joined the company permanently after finished his engineering degree in Bergen in 1948.

We automate heavy and time-consuming work
