Lyngby/Denmark – “I have no doubt in my mind that Iran is on the doorstep to a period of great progress. The business culture, the high level of education and of course the abundant natural resources is more or less a guarantee for blooming business in the petrochemical and refining industry. And we are eager to resume the great working relationship with Iran and the companies here that we have enjoyed for many years. I’m glad that we can now look towards future successes,” says Mr. Per K. Bakkerud, Executive Vice President of Topsoe’s Chemical Business Unit and the EMEA region.
Furthermore, Topsoe announced to open permanent offices in Tehran. The decision is made based on the company’s deep-rooted knowledge of the sector and long-standing relations with Iranian companies. Topsoe’s Tehran office will be led by Managing Director Jens Ole Madsen, who has broad management and sales experience from many years with Topsoe and other engineering and cleantech companies.
