​Magnulf Inge Ulstein was the oldest of Inga and Martin’s three sons. He was born on 14th July 1924. When his father died, Magnulf was just completing his engineering degree in Gothenburg. In the photo above, taken in 1948, his father had suddenly died, and Magnulf is sitting in the front row with a tie.

Shop foreman Per Andersen stepped in as managing director until Magnulf had finished school in Sweden, and in 1949, Magnulf came home to Ulsteinvik to take over the management of the company, just 25 years old. 

The task entrusted to him was no light load to bear. Albeit, the company was by no means as large as it would be in a few years time, but it was growing steadily and demands were placed on the manager.

Magnulf Ulstein died on 7th July 1989.
