About us

About Usisaat

More than 45 years ago, Usisaat started doing household relocations, and today the company has several departments and operates all over Greenland. From its very inception, Usisaat has had a position on social and environmental responsibility, and this has very much helped shape the company, which today takes an active part in the local community with its vision and clear positions when it comes to global environmental issues.

Usisaat is a proud family-run business that wants to protect our Greenland and ensure a sustainable future. We will do our part to protect the environment, and choosing us as your partner means that you are doing your part for nature as well. Usisaat is a family-owned business, and the company is currently being operated by the second generation.

History

The story behind the Greenlandic business Usisaat ApS dates back to 1973, when the company was founded by husband and wife Akisooq Poulsen and Hans Gerstrøm. Today, their children Minik Gerstrøm and Arnannguaq Gerstrøm are taking the company into the future. Usisaat is based in Nuuk, and the company has been headquartered here since 1991.

Usisaat is operated by siblings Minik Gerstrøm and Arnannguaq Gerstrøm, while the two founders still take an active management role. Minik is responsible for the auto service part of the company, while Arnannguaq takes care of the administrative part and Moving and Shipping.

Although Usisaat’s history goes back many years in time, it is a company that is constantly evolving. Its processes are continuously optimised, and management, as well as employees, are focused on creating innovative solutions that benefit the population of Greenland.

New headquarters

We have plans to construct a building at Qeqertat totalling 5,700 square metres, where we will establish all of our units and facilities. Today we have four locations around the city, and the new headquarters will mean that we will be able to provide more secure and more efficient workflows and enhance our competitiveness by gathering everything under one roof.

Construction of the new building will give us many more square metres to work with, and we therefore have plans to expand with a storage facility. This will give us the opportunity to offer our customers additional services, such as storage and self-storage unit rental.
