King Frederik the Ninth’s Honorary Award
Henrik, Prince Consort of Denmark and chairman of the committee for King Frederik the Ninth’s Honorary Award, presented the award to CEO Peter Laursen and senior advisor Ib Laursen at Fredensborg Palace on Tuesday September 20th, 2011.
The award is a recognition of the long-standing success, which the company has had on the export markets in for instance Norway, Sweden, Germany, Finland, Austria, Switzerland and Holland.
”The honorary award is a slap on the back for our company. We have spent many years working on an increase of export, since it has become more difficult on the Danish market. Norway, Sweden and Germany have not been so hard affected by the crisis; therefore we see great possibilities on those markets. We have been able to present good results for years. This year our sales have increased with 20% compared to last year”, says founder and former CEO, Ib Laursen, who now is working as senior advisor in the company.
The Danish Federation of Small and Medium Sized Enterprises nominated Ib Laursen ApS for the prestigious award. The award includes a certificate and a sculpture.
