Welcome! If you’re reading this, you’ve already landed on our Montel Group web page, so congratulations on taking the first step in exploring our new site.
Maybe you’ve never worked with us – or maybe you’ve known us for years – but in either case, we hope this blog post gives you an understanding of who we are and exactly why we’ve decided to create a new home for all the different services within the Montel family.
We begin back in 1989, almost a decade before the world wide web went live and when the phrase ‘social media’ would probably have described a group of people reading newspapers together. More importantly, it was the year Montel was established in Oslo, as a vendor of the USA’s 4th biggest media corporation at the time, Knight Ridder. This entailed travelling across Scandinavia with the trunk loaded with satellite communications hardware, the cutting-edge technology for data distribution before the internet went live.
Over the next few years, we began building our energy market news and data offering into what became the Montel Online service, now used by professionals in 30 countries. In the process, we've been responsible for several 'firsts' and embraced new technology before it became a given to use it.
