Zaptec is a company that is developing incredibly well throughout the region, creating jobs, generating value, and putting the region on the map, says Stanley Wirak, Mayor of Sandnes.
Zaptec is relocating its headquarters and its 90 employees from Innovasjonsparken in Stavanger to new FOMO premises at Vassbotnen 1, Sandnes.
FOMO was established in 2018 by partners Magnus Øgård Meisal and Daniel Harvei Sandvold, who took over Equinor’s old premises at Grenseveien 21. The building had been vacant for four years before becoming one of the country’s largest recycling projects and one of Norway’s most spectacularly designed coworking spaces. On the outside, the premises are surrounded by highways, gray concrete, and impersonal office buildings, but on the inside, the atrium has been transformed into a green pedestrian street with dining options, flowing water, and meeting rooms on both sides.
FOMO has now secured a 15,000 square meter building on the Forus side of Sandnes. Zaptec is scheduled to move to the new FOMO premises at Vassbotnen 1, which are spread across three buildings and include a cafeteria and a fitness center. The office spaces will undergo renovation and be ready for a planned opening in the autumn, with full occupancy by the turn of the year.
It’s great that Zaptec is now moving to Sandnes – great for the city, great for all of us, says Stanley Wirak, Mayor of Sandnes. Zaptec is a company that is developing incredibly well throughout the region, creating jobs, generating value, and putting the region on the map, Wirak concludes.
