The Prime Minister of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, visited printing machine manufacturer, Nilpeter, at headquarters in Slagelse as part of her re-election campaign on the 2nd of June. She talked to management and employees in the factory.
“It is incredibly exciting to visit a company like Nilpeter, where you both meet highly skilled employees who are very happy with their work, and a management team, which clearly states that they want to maintain production in Denmark”, said Helle Thorning-Schmidt during the visit.
“We clearly sense that we are entering a global growth period. We are doing well as a company, we have skilled people, and look positively at the future”, said Peter Eriksen, COO at Nilpeter to the large crowd of reporters. “Nilpeter is a true global player. Today we have manufacturing sites in Europe, USA, and Asia, alongside seven fully owned daughter companies, to remain close to our markets and to support our customers locally. This is a central part of our strategy, and the decentralization is likely to continue”, Peter Eriksen concluded.
During the one-hour visit, the Prime Minister made a tour of the factory assembly, the machine shop, and the Technology Center.
