The story of ALMACO, born an international company, starts in 1998 when a small group of talented entrepreneurs joined forces to create a company that would fulfill the needs of a growing market for Finnish suppliers in the then US-based cruise ship industry. The idea was to bring cabin modernization knowledge to the worldwide sailing fleet of cruise ships. For this purpose, ALMACO established from the very start a company in Finland and another one in Florida.
20 years later, the company has offices worldwide and has carried out over 300 Newbuilding and Modernization projects for both Accommodations and Catering areas in the Marine and Offshore industries around the world.
In these 20 years, ALMACO has continuously developed the offering base to bring in the latest technologies focused on the customer needs.
On the Accommodations side, we started as the one project management source to bring the materials and labor from Finland to the major cruise lines in the United States. Throughout the years, we have adopted and perfected new technologies such as modular cabins and the mobile cabin factory that deliver timeand cost-efficient solutions to the challenges of newbuilding and modernization of accommodation areas.
