Vetaphone A/S has been awarded DI Trekantområdets Initiativpris 2017 (The Confederation of Danish Industry’s Initiative Award) – an award that honours the enterprise of small companies and their desire to be creative in order to develop their business.
Vetaphone has been awarded this prize in acknowledgement of its ability and courage to make the right strategic decisions during the financial crisis and for the continuous positive financial growth in the years that followed. In addition, Vetaphone has demonstrated how a strategic move to focus on an inspiring work environment where humour and family spirit plays a large par, has enabled sustained growth.

“The development Vetaphone has been through during the last years is an inspiring story – and can hopefully show other companies how important a healthy work environment and the ability to work together as one company is. But it is also the story of a company that made some conscious and daring strategic decisions in a difficult period – and succeeded.”

First and foremost their presence secures valuable jobs, but Vetaphone is also an in important source of inspiration and motivation for other local companies, creating a foundation for continuous growth and development in the area”.

Something I’m very proud of”, Frank Eisby explains and continues:
