It is a great honor to be recognized for our work and commitment to delivering high quality products and services to our customers. Thank you to everyone who supports us!

“It is honorable that it is the municipal board that nominates for this category. The criterias for this category are especially linked to local anchoring and we are happy that Fumex meet these. It has been important for Fumex to be locally owned and generate jobs in the area. Despite fierce competition on the job market in Skellefteå, our staff shows a loyalty that we really value.
