Our values

Our shared values are what unites us. They describe what it takes to succeed, and they permeate the way we work. We achieve our world-class reputation through our people: working together, sharing ideas and a dedication to technical excellence.


We are known for our drive and persistence. We always strive to meet our customers' expectations. We set ambitious goals for ourselves and we are driven towards them with a clear and constant focus. What we start, we finish.

We do not give in.

«This speaks to who I am. The work should be done properly. This is part of our soul. It’s part of our culture. We don’t do anything half way. We wouldn’t have come so far if we weren’t determined and targeted.”
John Raaen, Project Manager – Costal Defence, Polen, (KDA)


Always performing better is a vital part of who we are. We constantly innovate and implement improvements in all parts of our business - from our products, through our processes, to our customers' experiences.

We relentlessly pursue improvements, new ideas and new solutions.

“Innovation is about creating something new, but also to renew or improve what’s already there. This is part of our everyday life in KONGSBERG, which I think is quite unique. We innovate continuously, in all parts of our business.”
Guro Knapstad, Business Development Energy (KDI)


Collaboration is fundamental to our business. We exchange ideas among ourselves, with our suppliers and partners, and we cooperate closely with our customers. We work as teams, we share knowledge and we value team success - to the benefit of our customers and our own competitiveness.

We collaborate as individuals and as an organisation.

“It means working together. We value our differences and acknowledge each other’s strengths. You must dare to include those who think different from yourself, that’s when we really achieve the best solutions.”
An-Magritt Tinlund Ryste, Program Manager Autonomy, (KM)


Our customers and partners can trust KONGSBERG to deliver, always. Dealing with KONGSBERG means dealing with reliable people, a reliable corporation and reliable products. KONGSBERG is a responsible organisation characterised by integrity and concern for health, safety and the environment.

We are reliable people. We are responsible citizens.

“It’s invaluable to come to work every day knowing that I have a professional organisation and trustworthy colleagues backing me up. The support we gained for the acquisition of Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine shows just how much our owners and the market believe in us and what KONGSBERG can achieve. There’s a collective pride in working for a company with 200 years of industrial history, and I hope we can continue to manage this heritage.”
Jon Årvar Rø, Manager Investor Relations and Analysis, (KOG)
