Iskraemeco is the recipient of the FDI Award Slovenia, which the Republic of Slovenia awards in recognition of the outstanding role of foreign direct investors who generated impressive business results in the previous year and made an impressive contribution to the development of Slovenia’s economy.
The awards are presented to best-performing foreign-owned companies whose operations and employment in Slovenia is expanding and who promote innovative and smart solutions. Such an award is an honour for the foreign owners, Slovenian employees, as well as for the suppliers and customers, as these are the main pillars of a company’s success. Granted by SPIRIT Slovenia since 2006, the awards complement Slovenia’s overall strategy to attract foreign direct investment, which is a priority for the Ministry of the Economic Development and Technology and for the entire Government of the Republic of Slovenia.
At the gala event held at the Brdo Estate near Kranj yesterday evening, FDI Award Slovenia 2019 was presented to three companies: Iskraemeco, d. d., as a large-sized company, Systemair, d. o. o. for its long-term presence in the region, and Swarco Lea, d. o. o. for smart development of products and services. In its justification of the prizes, SPIRIT Slovenia stated that Iskraemeco, founded in 1945, joined forces with the Egyptian company Elsewedy Electric, thus acquiring a valuable business partner and many new opportunities for growth and development.
The award was received by Bahaa Abdullah, CFO of Iskraemeco. The event was also attended by Luis Goncalves, CEO, and many other company representatives. Apart from the Minister for the Economic Development and Technology, the event was also attended by the Egyptian Ambassador to Slovenia, His Excellency Reda Habib Ibrahim Zaki.
This award is further proof that we can achieve fantastic progress and outstanding results. Positive thinking, focus, motivation, innovative approach and common goals are what secures the success of the entire team and the company.
A warm thank you to all the employees – you are the driving force behind this company’s success and it is because of you that Iskraemeco has been able to earn the FDI Award Slovenia 2019.
