Who are Norlense?
NorLense manufacture products used offshore, in snow and in the desserts. The products are designed and produced in order to function without being adversely affected by the environment. In Carmo, they found a supplier with products living up to their high standards.
They are a leading Norwegian manufacturer of oil booms used for oil spill recovery in rough weather around the worldwide, as well as manufacturing inflatable tents and shelters, which are used for emergency hospitals, refugee camps and military purposes.
“It is important that our customers can rely on having well-known high-quality products from NorLense.
Our products are used in extreme climates and conditions all over the world, they are designed to withstand the massive effects from storms, ice, snow, and salt water as well as extreme heat and sand.

Making our products easy to handle
Another key parameter, besides the high quality that Carmo offer, is that their products must be easy to handle in all conditions. Geir Sørensen explains:
“We have designed all our products to be easy to handle. Therefore, our oil booms can be operated by one person and our inflatable tents are also easy to deploy and take down after use. In order to achieve this, we have integrated components that support this goal in the design stages. We use a wide range of components from Carmo such as line supports, handles, cleats and eyelets in our products. Carmo’s components play a vital part in making our products easy to handle.”
A robust business partner
NorLense has existed since 1975 and have proven their resilience. This is also important for NorLense when looking at their suppliers.
“We are interested in long-term partnerships with our suppliers. Therefore, it is important for us that our suppliers run a robust business and that they are located in stable and democratic countries. Carmo has been an important partner for NorLense for more than 20 years. Carmo's location in Denmark brings a security to our partnership. Reliability, short delivery times and smooth communication. All of these factors are of great value to NorLense.”
