About us

Tjaldur is an industrial holding company registered in the Faroe Islands. Tjaldur focuses its investments in the North Atlantic, which has a rich resource base of seafood and energy. We are committed to sustainable development in this area.

Tjaldur has comprehensive operating experience and industrial insight doing business in the North Atlantic, and invests in companies with improvement potential and the possibility for international growth.

Tjaldur (Oyster Catcher) is the national bird of the Faroes, celebrated with processions on the 12th of March every year, when it returns from abroad.

Tjaldur is a global citizen, but it builds its nest in the Faroe Islands.

Tjaldur was initially established as a shipping company in 1919, and became a holding company after the sale of the shipping activities in 2004. Tjaldur reinvested the funds and established positions in several marine industries and among other played a vital role in the reconstruction of the Faroese salmon farming industry in 2005.

In 2016, the company transformed into an international industrial holding company with a new organizational setup and a more active role internationally.

We at Tjaldur believe we can add value to companies through our operating experience, industrial insight, and far-reaching regional network. The board of directors and the management of Tjaldur have significant ownership in the company.
