“AlfaTest is located in Sweden and has a global footprint through agreements with Swedish and international shipyards and shipowners that bring AlfaTest’s experts around the world. We aim to continue to grow AlfaTest both in the onshore and maritime industries,” says Niklas Persson, head of Nordic Inspekt Group AB.
