29 January 2018

On January 29, 2018, Liftup has received the Danish Industry’s national Initiative Award 2017. Liftup received DI Aalborg’s Initiative Award 2017 on October 10th 2017 and was subsequently recommended to the national Initiative Award.

The national Initiative Award 2017 was presented at DI's annual Conference for Small and Medium-sized Businesses by H.R.H. Prince Joachim of Denmark. At the conference in Kolding approx. 400 guests were present.

“Liftup is awarded the prize for aesthetics, design and safety. The company manufactures aids for people with reduced mobility, which, besides being functional, also look nice in an everyday environment, for example at home. Liftup was founded in 2003. The idea began when architects demanded aids for wheelchair users that did not impair the existing architecture.” (excerpt from press release)

The Prince of Denmark accompanied the award ceremony with the words: “With DI's Initiative Award, we would like to honor some of the companies that have demonstrated special initiative and courage during the past year. Companies that through their work can serve as inspiration for others.”

Søren Elisiussen, CEO of Liftup, expresses about the receiving of the award: “We are incredibly proud to receive DI's Initiative Award. We see it as an acknowledgement of our work to create equal opportunities for all through innovative and aesthetic welfare technology for people with reduced mobility.”

According to DI, the award is also a reward for going new ways of functionality and design of the products that Liftup distribute worldwide today.

Liftup wants as many as people as possible to enjoy our products, and we pursue an ambitious growth strategy. We are therefore constantly working on bringing new solutions to the market and we have chosen to intensify our search for new inventions in our Research and Innovation Department under the leadership of Flemming Eriksen, the founder and former CEO of Liftup.
