History

Experience spanning five decades

Permascand offers customers nearly 50 years’ experience of advanced, innovative electrodes and electrochemical solutions.

Ever since the company was founded as a joint venture in 1971 – when we manufactured dimensionally stable anodes for the Scandinavian electrochemical industry – we have built our business on technological excellence and in-depth know-how.

We continue to be at the forefront of the industry, shaping change, and working closely with customers and suppliers from all over the world. Today, our systems are in operation at offshore, process, and marine applications in some of the most challenging environments on Earth.
