The visit of the President of the Republic of Slovenia dr. Danilo Türk
On Tuesday, 24th January, the President of the Republic of Slovenia with his staff paid a visit to our company. When he awarded us with the Zlata Gazela (“Golden Gazelle”) award last year, he showed a lot of interest for our company. That is why our general manager invited him for a visit.
Firstly the President met company’s management. Mr. Božo Lednik, the chair of the supervisory board of KLS and Mr. Franc Naraločnik, the mayor of Ljubno ob Savinji municipality attended this meting as well. Following that the President, accompanied by his staff, was given a tour around the production plant. He stopped on several occasions to exchange a couple of words with our employees.
In his press release on his official web page, the President highlighted KLS as a company, which has proved exceptional business results by its own merit and is today one of important global producers in the field of complex automobile industry. He emphasised that Slovenia is proud of achievements, which result from our own knowledge, work and effort.
In this lies the key to economic success of Slovenia, since without the industrial core of development, we cannot have a comprehensive development, the President said. KLS Ljubno is, according to the President, an example of such development. As he explained, the company has managed to cultivate work, production process and its complete development and consequently gained better market results.
The President also commended exceptional added value, created by the company. In the core of this result are high business and work ethics as well as self-respect and the respect of others. This ethic and cultural core is an essential point of departure and experience, which is important for Slovenia and which should serve as a role model for others, the President emphasised.
