Kimek was established in 1986 with the Russian fleet in the Barents Sea as a main market, service for the mining industry and the Norwegian-Russian trade cooperation. In 1991 Kværner took over the company and expanded the shipyard with the ship lift and the ship hall.

Through the next years it has been changes in ownership, first local owners and then Bergen Group took over 100% of the company.
