Danish aqua feed maker in search of new managing director
Aqua feed maker GRAINTEC has announced the "release" of its managing director, Niels Pedersen, from his position as of Nov. 28.
The Danish firm said a new managing director is expected to take office during the first half of 2017. "Until then the job as managing director will be handled jointly by Manager for Technology & Business Development Benny Simonsen and Chief Financial Manager Kasper Holm".
GRAINTEC has recognized Pedersen's role in the transformation of the company as a global and world leading supplier of solutions for the international fish feed and pet food industry. During his 11-year stint with the company, Pedersen led in building up the GRAINTEC organisation and business systems to meet the key customers' needs and expectations, the company said.
"During these years, the company has completed significant consultancy and project supplies. As a result, GRAINTEC is today recognised as a global company with established companies in four continents", it said.
GRANTEC said the management changes would not influence the fundamental values, mission and vision of the company but that the organisation would be adjusted to meet the requirements and expectations of the future.
"GRAINTEC will continue striving to be the preferred supplier of consultancy and supply projects for the international fish feed and pet food industry", it said.
GRAINTEC is headquartered in Vejle, Denmark, and has subsidiaries in Chile, China and the US.
