There might be a debt crisis in the Euro zone, and global growth might have been hit by the financial crisis. But no one at the Welltec headquarters in Allerød, Denmark seems to have noticed. Instead, the company has just grown and grown since it was founded 18 years ago, and in the last five years, turnover has grown by an average of 58 percent annually, says the company’s founder and CEO, Jørgen Hallundbæk, in an interview with ShippingWatch.
“We’ve tried to detach ourselves from the world that is affected by the current crisis. We’ve done this by working with oil companies that are not affected by the fluctuations of the world economy, companies such as Statoil and Exxon. Their investment opportunities are so massive, and they plan so far ahead that these minor road bumps just don’t matter,” says Jørgen Hallundbæk.
