The ex-Prime Minister of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, visited printing machine manufacturer, Nilpeter, at its headquarters in Slagelse, Denmark, as part of her re-election Prime Ministerial campaign at the beginning of the month.

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 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.

“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 decentralisation is likely to continue.”

During the one-hour visit, the now Danish politician, Thorning-Schmidt, made a tour of the factory assembly, the machine shop, and the Technology Center.
