Nortal received renowned NRW.INVEST award

According to Priit Alamäe, Founder and CEO of Nortal, this award is an important honor acknowledging the company’s efforts, but it is only the beginning of Nortal’s story in Germany.

“We have made significant investments in growing our business in the NRW region and in Germany over the past several years. Our plan is to proceed on this path and continue to grow both organically as well as look into opportunities for merging or acquiring a company in Germany,” says Alamäe.

This distinction is awarded annually by the respected Economic Development Agency of the German State of North Rhine-Westphalia. Along with Nortal, this year the award was also presented to the French cosmetics group L’Oréal, the Dutch online supermarket PICNIC and the Austrian company Competence Call Center.

“This year, our NRW.INVEST AWARD is very much characterized by European investors. Many of them have been involved in North Rhine-Westphalia for years, because it is here that they find the ideal conditions for growth. This is demonstrated in particular by the numerous expansion investments last year – a clear commitment to the location and affirmation for NRW as a guarantor of success and growth,” stated Petra Wassner, CEO of the state-owned NRW.INVEST Economic Development Corporation at the awards ceremony.

NRW.INVEST AWARD dates back to 2003. Previously this distinction has been awarded to US online retailer Amazon, express and parcel delivery service UPS and hotel search engine operator Trivago among others.

“North Rhine-Westphalia has attractive location conditions that enable us to compete successfully with other European metropolitan regions: More than 20,000 foreign companies have already settled here. International investors are important employers whose know-how and innovative spirit also drive the progress of our country. With the NRW.INVEST AWARD, we would like to express our thanks for this commitment. The award winners show how digitization can have a positive impact not only on our economy and working environment, but also on public life as a whole,” commented Economics and Digital Affairs Minister Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart at the NRW.INVEST AWARDS 2019.
