Booforge AB, one of Scana’s former portfolio companies, is established in Karlskoga, Sweden as early as 1646.
Scana's predecessor, Scana Industries, was established in 1987 when ScanArmatur AS and ScanPaint AS were acquired.
In the period before its listing on the Oslo Stock Exchange in 1995, several companies were added to the Scana Industries portfolio – including include the actuator and valve control manufacturer Skarpenord, steelworks companies Stavanger Staal AS and Björneborg Järnverk AB, as well as Booforge AB.
Scana Property AS is established. The new company is made up of subsidiaries Scana Eiendom Jørpeland and Scana Eiendom SSA. A 50.1 % ownership of Fjordbris is also included in Scana Property’s portfolio.

Scana Energy Holding
Scana Energy Holding is set up and becomes the owner of all Swedish subsidiaries, except Scana Property AB.
From industrial to holding company
The company strategy is changed from being an industrial enterprise to a holding company with portfolio companies. The vision behind the restructuring is to be a profitable industrial investment company.
To make the newly adopted strategy more visible, the new board decides to change the name from Scana Industries to Incus Investor.
Expansion and strengthening of the portfolio continues.
From Incus Investor to Scana
Incus Investor changes its name to Scana and launches a new course as a parent company with active ownership in a growing group of maritime service providers.
