Company received the King Frederik Honorary Award for Excellence.
Danish fashion jewellery brand, Dansk Smykkekunst, has been awarded the King Frederik the Ninth Honorary Award for Excellence for its efforts on the Danish export market.
Dansk Smykkekunst was one of five companies to receive this year’s King Frederik the 9th Honorary Award. The award has previously been won by companies such as Danish Crown, Siemens Wind Power A/S and FLSmidth A/S.
Managing Directors Christian and Malene Storm were presented with the accolade aboard the Royal Yacht ”Dannebrog” by His Royal Highness The Prince Consort Henrik at a ceremony.
One of Scandinavia’s largest fashion jewellery and accessories companies, Dansk Smykkekunst is sold in 11 European countries via 1,500 outlets. Recently it has grown its retail base in the USA, Canada and Russia.
Exports comprise 81% of total turnover.
Due to a recent export drive, the UK is now the second biggest market for Dansk Smykkekunst outside Scandinavia.
Owner Christian Storm said: “This really means a lot to us to be included, despite being a smaller company. It is a huge recognition of our work.”
Dansk Smykkekunst, a second gerneration family business, was originally founded in Copenhagen 40 years ago.
