The “crux of the matter” is a term often used to describe the critical aspect or most important point of an issue. “Crux” also refers to the most challenging part of a route or track. It takes knowledge, experience, and capacity to identify and effectively deal with the crux of the matter. This is where our founders – Ketil, Samson, Lars Erik, and Jan Petter – found their inspiration when naming the company in 2005.
Today, it remains a powerful inspiration in our work with clients.
