Danish Mayor Visits DIS
Industry 4.0, growth and innovation were on the agenda when Aalborg’s mayor Thomas Kastrup-Larsen and Business Aalborg representatives visited the R&D company DIS’ Northern Denmark department in Aalborg earlier this week.
Last fall the R&D and engineering company DIS (Dansk IngeniørService A/S) opened a subsidiary in Aalborg and earlier this week the mayor of Aalborg, Thomas Kastrup-Larsen as well as representatives from Business Aalborg stopped by for a visit where they held a meeting about innovation and growth in Aalborg in Northern Denmark.
- Aalborg is a growing city. Over the past 2 years the population in the municipality has increased with 5,000 citizens, which among other means that we need committed companies like DIS to create more jobs and student jobs, says Thomas Kastrup-larsen, Mayor of Aalborg.
After half a year in Northern Denmark DIS has a positive outlook on the future.
- We sense optimism in the market as well as great interest from the companies in the North of Denmark and we are very pleased to be present near our customers here as well as we are pleased to be able to contribute with business and socially in Aalborg, says Michael Gadeberg, CEO and partner at DIS.
At the meeting the mayor also gained knowledge on how Industry 4.0 with new technology affects businesses more and more, and how DIS predicts the digital conversion will preoccupy many industrial companies in the coming years. The R&D company sees Aalborg as a city with many strong technical competences and wishes to attract these engineers and engage them in projects throughout the world – without them moving away from the city.
- There is a shortage of engineers in Denmark and this visit confirms the strategy of opening a subsidiary in Northern Denmark, where our engineering and consultancy competences are needed. Aalborg is an exciting and growing city, and there is plenty to do out there, says Morten Nørgaard Morthorst, Head of Department at DIS in Aalborg.
