Polish honour for Niels Due Jensen
Polish President, Aleksander Kwasniewski, today decorated Grundfos Group Chairman, Niels Due Jensen, with the Officer's Cross of the Order of Merits of the Republic of Poland. The Officer's Cross is a decoration for Mr. Due Jensen's achievements in 10 years of partnership between Grundfos and Polish pump company LFP in Poznan.
The Polish President told Mr. Due Jensen that Grundfos' achievements are one of the reasons why Poland is not afraid of entering the European Union. Mr. Kwasniewski congratulated Mr. Due Jensen on behalf of all LFP staff.
In his speech of thanks Mr. Due Jensen laid particular stress on the importance of partnership as a part of Grundfos' corporate values. He said it is natural for Grundfos to operate with responsibility commercially as well as socially by showing respect for local values and cultures.
This is the third time the Polish Officer's Cross is given to a foreigner.
