The 2017 President of Iceland’s Export Award for achievement in the export of Icelandic products and services go to Skaginn 3X. The presentation took place at the presidential residence Bessastadir. Ingolfur Arnason MD of Skaginn 3X, accepted the award on behalf of the company from the President of Iceland, Gudni Th. Johannesson. When selecting candidates for the award, attention is given to the value generated by the exports, the proportion of exports to total sales and the marketing of products to new areas. The achievement is granted in recognition for contribution to the reinforcement of export trade and procure of foreign currency for the Icelandic Nation.
A part of the company already achieved this great recognition back in 2006 when 3X-Stal was awarded. Skaginn 3X formally took its current shape when two companies joined forces under one name in January 2017. Both companies have a long-standing relationship as technology providers to the Seafood Industry.
Skaginn 3X has been awarded with several awards. "In the last few months we are especially proud of receiving three awards, namely Svifaldan, an award for an Outstanding Concept given at the Icelandic Seafood Conference in November 2016, secondly The Icelandic Innovation Awards last month and last but not least the latest President of Iceland Export Awards, none of this would be possible without support and collaboration with the Icelandic Seafood Industry". Says Ingolfur Arnason Managing Director of Skaginn 3X.
Skaginn 3X is the first company to receive the prestigious Innovation and The Export awards in the same year. "This is extraordinary" says Jon Birgir Gunnarsson who recently joined Skaginn 3X as Head of Marketing and Sales, "I have been in the industry for a long time and the level innovation we are able to exhibit at the Brussels Seafood Show later this month is un paralleled". Skaginn 3X will be at the Seafood Expo Global / Seafood Processing Global Hall 4 Stand 6127 that takes place in Brussels from April 25th until April 27th.
