Blom was founded by hydrographer Ole H Blom in 1954 and is now one of the European leaders of acquisition, processing, modelling and services based on geographical information. Headquarters are located in Oslo, Norway, but we have local offices in 13 European countries. Click here to see our office locations.
What we do
Blom has a workforce of over 1,100 trained staff all excelling in their fields of expertise. Traditionally aerial photography and surveys were our core market. Back in 1919 in the UK Aerofilms staff were hanging out the side of planes with hand held cameras to capture Oblique and Vertical photographs of individual landmarks. The group now has over 18 aerial survey planes and leases four helicopters to transport our 23 large format camera and 10 LiDAR systems around the globe to produce high accuracy airborne surveys. These products are still part of our core services; however any successful company's growth is based on innovating and creating new services. Blom is proud of the innovation that is embraced in our offices.

Blom ASA was established in 1954 by Hydrographer Ole H. Blom. In 1988 it was listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange. Since its establishment Blom has been a leading provider of products and services within the maritime and land based mapping industry. Today, Blom is divided into two divisions; Blom Geo Engineering Services and Blom Information Services.
In 2003 Blom went through a major re-organization and restructuring process.
...
In November 2004 Blom announced the acquisition of Geonet SRL in Romania, a small local operator that owned 49 % of Blom's low-cost production in Romania. This was a strategically important decision that gave full control over Blom's production lines. The following December the company acquired the German company Geo-Tec GmbH. This gave Blom access to one of the few fully operational digital production lines in the world.
During 1st quarter 2005 Blom completed the acquisition of the British Simmons Aerofilms Ltd. This was an important step for Blom to establish the company as a leading European provider of services related to the collection and processing of map data.
In its strategy work, the Board of Directors of Blom decided that the company would focus more on products and services with a high technological content. As part of this strategy Blom acquired 100% of the shares in the Swedish company TopEye AB in July 2005. TopEye has unique competence and products for the commercial utilization of laser technology, and is the leading company in the collection of map data through the use of laser technology in helicopters.
In September 2005 Blom entered into an exclusive license agreement with Pictometry® for 23 countries in Europe. Pictometry® is a completely new and unique method for the collection and processing of angular and vertical aerial photographs, a technology that, in our opinion, will have a long-term impact on the geographic information market.
Blom took over 100% of the shares in Compagnia Generale Ripreseaeree (CGR) on 1 November 2005.
...
To pursue the strategy to strengthen Blom's position in Southern Europe, Blom purchased the Seficart Group during the 1st quarter of 2006.
