Jøtul received the award for "Export company of the year" during the Design Industry Conference 2017.
- We greatly appreciate this award. Export is very important to Jøtul. 75 percent of our sales originate from export markets, and we are proud to make international success with Norwegian products and Norwegian design," says Amund Skaaden.
Jøtul won the prize in front of Laader Berg and Scandinavian Business Seating. In its grounds, the jury writes:
"Through more than 160 years, the company has evolved into a global market leader, established in 43 countries on six continents. Careful adaptation to local market needs is an important part of Jøtul's international success. The company has developed products that are technologically top level and leverage market shares in a declining market. "
