Congrats Mr. Sofa Bed !
22 June 2010
Mr. Sofa bed himself, Flemming Højfeldt, celebrated his 60th Birthday this month. Flemming founded Innovation back in 1971 and is still active in the company as the technical director working with product development and not least optimisation of the production facilities. Even though marketing and sales is increasingly important, Innovation has always been a company with strong skills within design and production. This gives us the ability to experiment and innovate and allows us to guarantee the right standard of working conditions and product quality, which can otherwise be difficult to overview in the global market place.
Flemming is not a man who loves the spotlight, so you must click to see his picture. We wish you all the best Flemming!
