Typically when VIPs come calling they are customers on routine visits to discuss projects or take part in Factory Acceptance Tests. Yesterday was a notable exception, as our VIP guest was the Mayor of Aarhus; Jacob Bundsgaard.
As part of a program focusing on businesses that are growing internationally, Jacob Bundsgaard wanted to hear how Caljan Rite-Hite contines to achieve success on a global level. The Mayor was impressed by the company’s significant growth in recent years and wanted to hear our plans for the future.
As a student Mayor Bundsgaard worked for the Danish Post, so he has some understanding of the challenges facing parcel carriers. He was, however, not familiar with Telescopic Conveyors and eagerly absorbed the brief explanation offered by Caljan Rite-Hite’s Group Managing Director Henrik Olesen (pictured left).
A Student exchange opportunity in his formative years and subsequent periods living abroad have strongly influenced Jacob Bundsgaard’s choice of career. He is keenly aware of of the need to continuously develop and find new ways forward. The municipalities of Copenhagen and Aarhus play an important role in maintaining Denmark’s ability to successfully compete on an international level.
