Miguel Kohlmann on the Borsen ranking:
"Icopal has been have been rather a winner of the financial crisis. Many established good names of the industry lost image because of their behaviour in the current difficult times. This obviously led to an improvement in our ranking. But, we are doing a very solid work in most categories, and our improvement is more than justified! The improvement of the ranking in this Danish analysis comes essentially from the hard and solid work of our Danish team. So congratulations to our Danish team! "
