It took four weeks from the first meeting between Danish Thorco and Hamburg-based United Heavy Lift to when a formal collaboration in the form of new joint venture Thorco Projects had been realized, explains Lars Rolner, CEO and owner of United Heavy Lift (UHL), when talking about the lightning-fast process that led to the collaboration recently announced by the two family-controlled companies.

"It's been a very easy process because we know each other well, and because we practically don't have the same customer base and don't have our competencies focused on the same markets. It's also eased the process that our operations use the same IT program, so we don't have to implement major internal changes to hook the businesses together," says Lars Rolner, who established United Heavy Lift in the spring of 2015 after spending decades in the sector for project vessels, including a period as CEO, co-owner, founder of SAL Heavy Lift in Hamburg.
