Tailor-made from Lavango

Lavango is taking part in IceFish 2020, the third time that the company has exhibited – although it has been through a few changes of name, and was previously known as Arctic Machinery.

“The activities behind what we’re doing haven’t changed. And we’ll be at IceFish for the third time because we see this as the most important exhibition for the Icelandic market,” said the company’s CEO Kristján Karl Aðalsteinsson.


“We specialise in tailored systems for fish processing, supplying fishing vessels, processors and also aquaculture companies producing salmon and trout. We also represent a range of equipment from European suppliers, including Ultra Aqua water disinfection, CT-International freezers from Denmark, Nock skinning machines from Germany, Radwag weighing systems from Poland and Icepack gel mats and Elpress cleaning systems from Holland.”


Alongside the work it does under its own name, much of what Lavango does has a fairly low profile, with around two-thirds of its work done on behalf of specialist companies in the food technology field, providing equipment for both seagoing and shore-based processing systems.


“As an example, we are proud to produce the steel for the Icelandic high-tech company Samey. They do the design, electronics and the programming, and we supply the steelwork for them. We’re working for a range of Iceland and overseas companies, both small-scale suppliers and large companies,” he said.


“We produce to their specifications, and save them time and costs by delivering to them in Iceland, or direct to their overseas customers.”
