Kongsberg Aviation Maintenance SERVICES - A century of experience

Kongsberg Aviation Maintenance Services (KAMS) has played a significant role in the Norwegian aviation industry since 1916. KAMS was established as a part of the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation (NDLO) at Kjeller, and was transformed into a state enterprise, 100% owned by the Ministry of Defence, in 2011. In 2019, Kongsberg (majority owner) and Patria acquired the company to make it a world class MRO provider.

KAMS has extensive capabilities in the areas of repair, overhaul and modifications and testing of components for military aircraft and helicopters. It also specialises in recycling of spare parts.

In 2019, NDLO and KAMS entered into a strategic partnership to develop the maintenance scope of military aircraft and helicopters.
