Lauritzen: We are not moving to save

J. Lauritzen is moving its headquarters from Skt. Annæ Plads to Nordhavn and the building might be put up for sale. It’s not a cost-cutting exercise, CEO Jan Kastrup-Nielsen tells ShippingWatch.

It is about joining all the company’s employees on one floor and not about saving money, CEO in J. Lauritzen, Jan Kastrup-Nielsen says about the relocation the group has planned for January next year when it while move from Skt. Annæ Plads in central Copenhagen to Tuuborg Havnevej in suburban Hellerup.

"What we save in rent from moving is equivalent to about one month’s salary on a ship. It’s nothing compared with our bunker costs; it’s a very tiny spec in the big picture. The relocation is about moving to a house that is designed in the most optimal way," he tells ShippingWatch.
