History of Unislip

The Unique Grinding Machine for Gate and Globe Valves Rino Solberg and his company "UNISLIP" is a great success story and tells the history of how a young entrepreneur and his small company in Norway, against all odds became the world leader, selling to the Nuclear Power industry, within 13 years.

Rino Solberg started the company "Unislip" when he in 1974 was 30 years old and invented a unique grinding machine for valves and got patents in 12 countries on his invention

He joined marketing forces with another Norwegian, Ole Jorgensen D.Y. who operated from London and together they sold "Unislip" machines all over the world. For 13 years, Rino Solberg ran his manufacturing company in Norway, with daughter companies in Germany, Japan and USA and had agents for his "Unislip" machines in 25 countries.

The machine was unique and quickly became the world leader in this business. The customers were tank ships, refineries and power stations all over the world.

Today, probably 70-80% of all the nuclear power plants in the whole world have his machines. He sold the successful company after 13 years in 1987 and started a training and publishing company.

He then published several magazines and trained over 1000 companies in the areas of; Leadership, Sales, Quality Management, Time Management, Teamwork and Motivation. He has also written 10 books within these areas.


TODAY, he has taken on the goal to "Eradicating Poverty and Corruption" in Africa through his several companies in the Better Globe Group
There is still a huge market for the Unislip machines, even though the patent is no longer valid, (a patent expires after 20 years) and many companies have copied his successful product all over the world. That was also one of the reasons for him to sell the company while the patent was still valid.
