    On 1st June 2020, our dear colleague Peter M. Knudsencelebrated 25 years of working in our company. In August, we organised a small reception, which gave us the opportunity to express how much we value Peter as a colleague and recognize the contributions he continues to make. Hard working, loyal, knowledgeable, fair, with a strong work ethic. These are just a few words that describe Peter. For a quarter of a century, Peter has been active in the promotion and sale of the technology he truly believes can make a difference in fire safety; high-pressure water mist. His vast experience makes Peter a mentor, who we often go to for training and guidance in Danfoss Fire Safety. We thank Peter for a great collaboration, and we look forward to many more years of working with water mist projects. “Really overwhelmed by the many compliments I received in connection with my 25-year anniversary – thanks to Danfoss, truly a great company to be working for.”Peter M. Knudsen Market Solution Manager
