Nilfisk reaches a historical milestone and completes successful listing on the stock exchange
On 12th October, Nilfisk was successfully listed as an independent company on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange (Nasdaq Copenhagen). The leadership team, led by CEO Hans Henrik Lund, had the pleasure of ringing the opening bell, clearly stating that Nilfisk, a leading provider of professional cleaning equipment, has reached a historical milestone in the company's history.
"Nilfisk has successfully been a part of NKT Holding since 1989," says Hans Henrik Lund. "During this time, we have worked diligently to develop Nilfisk into a leader in our industry, and as a result we have created a strong and financially robust company that is able to thrive independently.
"The entire Nilfisk community throughout the world has contributed to this journey and we are extremely proud to celebrate this significant company milestone."
The listing has been celebrated by employees across more than 50 locations worldwide. However, according to the leadership team globally, the listing will not lead to any significant changes for the company's more than 250,000 active customers:
"We are extremely happy to have completed a successful listing, because it shows that the market and our investors strongly believe in the business, we have built," adds Hans Henrik Lund.
"However, it will not change how we do business. We will continue to run our company as we have done for the past 111 years and focus on developing and bringing to market high quality products and services."
At the opening bell ceremony, hosted at the Nilfisk headquarters in Denmark, the company received a warm welcome by the stock exchange.
Carsten Borring, head of listings for Nasdaq Copenhagen, says: "We are proud to welcome Nilfisk on Nasdaq Copenhagen. The listing of Nilfisk gives investors all over the world a unique opportunity to invest in the attractive professional cleaning industry on a transparent and regulated stock market."
Nilfisk has its own sales companies in 45 countries, and its products are sold in more than 100 countries.
