Business Award 2012
An event sure to be lost in October's wedding fever is the 2012 Luxembourg American Chamber of Commerce Business Award. As you can imagine, The Hereditary Grand Duke will be on his honeymoon with the new Hereditary Grand Duchess and will not present the award this year. Prince Felix will lend his polished personality to the event in lieu of the crown princely couple. The biennial gala award will be held at the exquisite University Club in New York on Tuesday, October 30.
The recipient of the 2012 award is Airtech Advance Materials Group. Airtech is a family owned company that opened facilities in Luxembourg in 1991. The Luxembourg based branch of the company (Airtech Europe) has grown from 6 initial employees to 112. The company is a world leader in their field and remains committed to their growth in Luxembourg.
The establishment and growth of the Luxembourg based branch of Airtech could be used as a success story for the involvement of the Ministry of Economics in helping to establish, retain and grow business in the Grand Duchy.
