Danish virus policy helps Landia forge ahead with new orders
27 Apr 2020
Leading pump and mixer manufacturer Landia reports that is has won significant new orders from Asia, thanks to the decision of its native Denmark to put the country's coronavirus lockdown into reverse.
The orders include the supply of pumps for a new biogas project in Japan and the provision of submersible mixers for an industrial wastewater treatment plant in Malaysia. Landia had also won an order to supply submersible chopper pumps for an expanding pig farm project in China.
Export sales director Thorkild Maagaard commented: “As soon as we saw the urgent situation of the spread of coronavirus, we took immediate steps to protect our workforce – in keeping with the advice from our government. This means that we have been able to keep very busy behind the scenes.
“As our Prime Minister, Mette Frederiksen (pictured) has said, it is important that we don’t keep Denmark closed any longer than we need to, but likewise, we must take things very gradually.
"Seeing our Landia colleagues in China recently returning to work is very heartening news, so we hope that when the time is right, we can slowly do likewise.
He added that, in addition to the new business from Asia, Landia also secured a new order from the Dominican Republic for our recirculation pumps”.
Recently Joern Kolmos, a professor in clinical microbiology at the University of Southern Denmark echoed the Danish premier, saying he believed that the country is ready for a controlled reopening.
