David Harris, president and CEO of Kinectrics Inc., together with Pia Olsen Dyhr, Danish Minister of Trade and Investment, have announced plans to establish Kinectrics first European facility in Jutland, Denmark in 2012. The new Kinectrics European location will serve to enhance and expedite qualified technical support for Denmark’s transmission and distribution infrastructure. This important initiative reflects Kinectrics continued capital investment in the transmission and distribution industry worldwide, as well as the company’s ongoing commitment to facilitate the availability of advanced engineering and testing services for a growing European client base.
“Kinectrics has identified Denmark as a leading European market utilizing transmission, distribution, wind generation, and environmental technologies”, said Harris. “We look forward to developing our Danish operation and furthering our objective to support both existing and future clients in the Nordic region—as well as expanding into the greater European Union from our Danish platform,” he added.
“I welcome Kinectrics’ expansion in Denmark and their establishment of a new facility in Jutland. Foreign investments are essential to creating growth and jobs in Denmark. Kinectrics’ competencies fit well into Denmark’s new energy strategy and as a category leader within transmission and distribution, Kinectrics brings valuable industry expertise and experience to Denmark,” said Pia Olsen Dyhr.
