Denmark (Danish: Danmark, pronounced [ˈtænmak] (listen)), officially the Kingdom of Denmark,[N 9][N 2] is a Nordic country. Denmark proper, which is the southernmost of the Scandinavian countries, consists of a peninsula, Jutland, and an archipelagoof 443 named islands,[N 2] with the largest being Zealand, Funen and the North Jutlandic Island. The islands are characterised by flat, arable land and sandy coasts, low elevation and a temperate climate. The southernmost of the Scandinavian nations, Denmark lies southwest of Sweden and south of Norway,[N 10] and is bordered to the south by Germany. The Kingdom of Denmark also includes two autonomous constituent countries in the North Atlantic Ocean: the Faroe Islandsand Greenland. Denmark has a total area of 42,924 km2 (16,573 sq mi), land area of 42,394 km2 (16,368 sq mi), and the total area including Greenland and the Faroe Islands is 2,210,579 km2 (853,509 sq mi), and a population of 5.8 million (as of 2019).
The unified kingdom of Denmark emerged in the 10th century as a proficient seafaring nation in the struggle for control of the Baltic Sea. Denmark, Sweden, and Norway were ruled together under one sovereign ruler in the Kalmar Union, established in 1397 and ending with Swedish secession in 1523. The areas of Denmark and Norway remained under the same monarch until 1814, Denmark–Norway. Beginning in the 17th century, there were several devastating wars with the Swedish Empire, ending with large cessions of territory to Sweden. After the Napoleonic Wars, Norway was ceded to Sweden, while Denmark kept the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Iceland. In the 19th century there was a surge of nationalist movements, which were defeated in the First Schleswig War. After the Second Schleswig War in 1864, Denmark lost the Duchy of Schleswig to Prussia. Denmark remained neutral during World War I, however, in 1920 the northern half of Schleswig became Danish again. In April 1940, a German invasion saw brief military skirmishes while the Danish resistance movement was active from 1943 until the German surrender in May 1945. An industrialised exporter of agricultural produce in the second half of the 19th century, Denmark introduced social and labour-market reforms in the early 20th century that created the basis for the present welfare state modelwith a highly developed mixed economy.
The Constitution of Denmark was signed on 5 June 1849, ending the absolute monarchy, which had begun in 1660. It establishes a constitutional monarchy organised as a parliamentary democracy. The government and national parliament are seated in Copenhagen, the nation’s capital, largest city, and main commercial centre. Denmark exercises hegemonic influence in the Danish Realm, devolving powers to handle internal affairs. Home rule was established in the Faroe Islands in 1948; in Greenland home rule was established in 1979 and further autonomy in 2009. Denmark became a member of the European Economic Community (now the EU) in 1973, but negotiated certain opt-outs; it retains its own currency, the krone. It is among the founding members of NATO, the Nordic Council, the OECD, OSCE, and the United Nations; it is also part of the Schengen Area. Denmark has close ties to its Scandinavian neighbours also linguistically, with the Danish language being partially mutually intelligible with both Norwegian and Swedish.
Denmark is considered to be one of the most economically and socially developed countries in the world. Danes enjoy a high standard of living and the country ranks highly in some metrics of national performance, including education, health care, protection of civil liberties, democratic governance, prosperity, and human development. The country ranks as having the world’s highest social mobility, a high level of income equality, has the lowest perceived level of corruption in the world, the eleventh-most developed in the world, has one of the world’s highest per capita incomes, and one of the world’s highest personal income tax rates.

Kevin McKell · Fast Forward · Loch Lomon...
I live just north of Glasgow in Scotland on the banks of Loch Lomond. Like most sales guys…You know, you spend a lot of time traveling, a lot of time in the office. Probably way too much time working and not enough time personal. I have a lovely golden retriever dog. And him and I walk constantly. And this is my regular walk where I go with a dog. The Loch Lomond Whiskey is a very smooth whiskey. I think it should just be savored and enjoyed. My father is 87. And every night in life he has a big stiff whiskey. I'm sure, Captain Haddock, has maybe dabbled in some of the other ones as well. But but if that's his brand, then good on them. I have a beautiful wife and two lovely kids and a dog. And I love my dog. That's not to say I don't love my kids and my wife. It Is a very true saying. If you love your job, you'll never work a day in your life. My engineering background wants to help people solve problems. I believe in what I do. I believe that I try and do my best for the people that I do the job for. The challenge I have in the industry is the product that we sell, which is Corona treatment, not a lot of people really know it or understand it. They know they need it, but they don't really understand it. The founder of the company Vetaphone, that was actually the guy that invented Corona treatment. Because necessarily invent something doesn't necessarily mean you're the best. And actually that's something that I'm very conscious of. So therefore, to make sure that you are the best, you have to do it in a very different aspect. You have to address all areas of the process. As a company like you mentioned earlier, we're very proud of our history. And one of the things that really separates us from that is the knowledge of the process. We try and help them understand that not one size fits all. We're approaching them to help educate them in the process. And then we can go into the technology and why it's different. Why that is? Why should they buy the piece of equipment that we've got as opposed to just making something themselves? LinkedIn Profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/kevin-mckell/

Kim Regin Sustmann · Fast Forward · Comm...
Well, International Business is about communication. The picture is illustrating a situation where I just had signed a contract with a Chinese company. Helping them to come to the European markets. A short time after we signed the contract, the same day, the manager asked me to go into a meeting room and then explain to all his managers how it was to make business in Europe. And I'm sitting in front of this Chinese group of people, the two sitting left to me, they spoke some English. And the rest was just looking. And I had a preplanned English PowerPoint I was using. It is not about the word 'understanding'. It's more about the word do you comprehend? And this is where International Business Cross Culture very often goes wrong. Business in Europe is about knowing how and knowing who. It's about having a network. It's about knowing the markets. Empathy is about understanding, comprehending, trying to see who you have on the other side. Understand the way they are. It's about relationships. It is a people's business. It's very important. I'm not trying to sell them anything. I'm explaining them what my products can do. And what they can do for them. And together we find a concept which would be the right one for them. In Europe, we have trust. Straight away. The first time you and I we met each other, we had trust. In Asia, it's different. You earn trust, it takes time. You need to get closer and closer and closer. In this specific case, I came back to this guy five years ago. I called him saying: are you home? And he greeted with me with open arms. I hadn't seen him in the company for twenty over years. And said: look here Kim. This was the bottle you gave me thirty over years ago. I kept it and cherished it. And I saved it for a memorable day. That wasn't the customer's attitude. That was a friend's attitude.

The packaging market continues to surprise new innovative solutions, new capabilities, and a changing trend towards a wider format. FlexoPrint in Randers, Denmark, is one of Denmark's leading flexo printing companies, serving customers in Scandinavia, Germany, and as CEO Lars Ole Nauta says, "Wherever there is an order, we try to get it." In this film, we get an insight into the recent investment of the Nilpeter FA 26" machine, which, according to Nauta, serves a gap in the market. FlexoPrints flexibility to serve fast is a KPI that will help to fill the machine with more jobs. Enjoy the film.

That photo is taken from one of the last trips before the Corona started. We didn't really know what was going to hit us. When I look at that photo, it shows the international mindset. It shows the lack of worries that we had at the time. It's a mindset taking in what is interesting and good around us in the world. And people meet up internationally. We do come with our own culture. But we are still open to learn from others. The dog is clearly looking at a bright horizon. To have a dog is something that my wife and kids always wanted. And it has made us appreciate more of the things that we have in the area of our house. I've never taken so many walks. Even at six o'clock in the morning, because you can see the sun is rising. When you walk along the beach, walk in your own thoughts and think. And maybe we do too little of that. We are so busy answering the next e-mail that we stop thinking about what is actually not just the values, but also one of the opportunities. I do that as an offset for, for instance, our business development. We were hit really hard by this Covid-19 and we had to stop our usual business traveling around making films. And all of a sudden we had to rethink: what are we doing? Communication companies have to rethink their communication. How do we capture the value for our customers and for our business? In the beginning, we all thought that this was just going to go away in a matter of months. Now we're in the new reality. And I think that we've all learned a lot from that. And I think that our business models have developed as well. Some of the virtual meetings is here to stay. And I see INKISH as a new way of communicating. I think that it's very common for a lot of trade medias to communicate with the industry in a way where they preserve the already known ways of doing it.

drupa 2021 to be canceled · Andreas Webe...
*This is our opinion based on intense research that we will write about in a series of articles on INKISH NEWS in the week from October 26th-30th. We are confident that Drupa 2021 WILL be canceled - or at least, our analysis of the situation points in that direction. The conversation between Andreas Weber, CEO INKISH D-A-CH, and Morten Reitoft, Editor-in-Chief, INKISH, is an appetizer to a week with articles about drupa. For the past many weeks, we have talked to people in the industry, other exhibition venues, media, sub-contractors, hotels, restaurants, and many more about the situation in Düsseldorf. The COVID-19 situation is, of course, the reason for the uncertainty, but why isn't drupa canceling drupa 2021? As with so many things, it's because of money. The drupa machine is vast, and the impact on the printing industry and the city of Düsseldorf is unimaginable. The situation for exhibitors is not comfortable. Lots of money is tight to drupa, and Messecenter Düsseldorf, and how drupa is handling the current situation, is most likely influencing the tradeshow's very future.

Our guests came from Japan, Canada, USA, UK, Belgium, Sweden, and Denmark - and we are confident that next year, even more, will come. We asked most of our participants to talk LIVE during the dinner - and here is Conni Dreyer from Denmark. Conni Dreyer is the CEO of Dreyer Kliche, which is one of the world's best producers of cliches for embossing and foil stamping.

The supply chain, as we know, is under pressure since both technology and demand for print changes. At the recent PrintNext19 event we met with Product Manager Michael Thorvaldsson from Antalis. Behind the "Product Manager" title, you'll find a dedication from Antalis to define their role in the future print market. For many years Reel-based paper to i.e., web-offset printing companies have been supplied directly from the mills. The Merchants on the other side has built efficient distributions for the sheetfed offset and digital print market. With the growth in digital web-based printing, the future of distribution is maybe also challenged? Michael Thorvaldsson regularly visits printing companies in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden to ensure both a top-of-mind, but also, and maybe more important to understand the demands printing companies have as well as focusing on the range of substrates that Antalis represents. In this film, Michael Thorvaldsson talks about hybrid paper and some of the challenges of being Antalis.

Editor Morten B. Reitoft from INKISH.TV was invited to Grafkom I/O to give a speech about "The Mystery of Prices" and though both sound and image quality isn't that good, we have decided to publish this anyway as a separate episode on INKISH.TV. The speech touches upon cost, market, and sales prices and why pricing is a mystery to some. One of the reasons is of course because all printers don't win all jobs and you can then speculate about your customer's loyalty, total market potential and other things in your pursuit of success.

INKISH.TV Proudly presents: The AMS Spec...
Substrates and effects are quite difficult to show on video and though we rarely do this on INKISH.TV we really liked the new lookbook V2 from AMS Spectral UV. President Steve Metcalf presented the lookbook at Print17 and we bring here a more or less un-edited version of his presentation. What is worth thinking of is the fact that the entire book is done on a 6-color B1 KBA printing machine with one LED UV lamp. No effects have been added in screen afterward - so what you see is what you get. The lookbook shows the potential of UV-print and since both inks and investment in UV is dropping these years and you even can buy equipment from all the major vendors with pre-installed UV - AMS Spectral UV - now a part of Baldwin - has really pushed their way into printing companies worldwide. As Steve Metcalf also explains in the episode - the ink densities can be dramatically increased and since curing is instant you can even print with high densities on un-coated substrates, on plastics and this, of course, opens up for a lot of new applications for a printer. A while ago we also spoke to Marc De Jong from Deltabach in Holland about his investment in LED-UV and as he explained he was having his company in a relatively small place, the instant drying of the printed paper gave him extra space since he didn't have to stock printed paper before binding. With Baldwin's investment in AMS Spectral UV, it is, of course, interesting to see whether LED-UV will lead over H-UV. Baldwin delivers both technologies.

Actually InterMail has been a company working with digital solutions for more than 20 years - but with the new CEO Anders Ertmann it seems that a lot of changes are in the pipeline and that the company will change over the next years in order to become not only a leader in the business they are well-known for, but also for the business they will conquer.

INKISH.TV Proudly Presents: CCO Kasper L...
"I honestly believe if we hadn't done what we did we wouldn't be here today" Please give a warm welcome to CCO Kasper Larsen and board member Gitte Haar from KLS PurePrint. No doubt that the environment is on the agenda in these years. Greenhouse gasses, global warming and growing concerns from both consumers, NGO's, politicians of course also require the printing industry to think. KLS PurePrint is not just thinking - they are actually doing and together with a few other printers across Europe PurePrint has been defined as a new brand for not just environmental friendly production but also cradle to cradle responsibility. KLS PurePrint has been one of the world's leading printing companies in relation to figure out how to actually be responsible for future generations and is our opinion a lightning tower in the printing industry. Of course, any print company owner can and must speculate about the feasibility and the financial consequences going all-in but according to CCO Kasper Larsen, it seems that going responsible is also a financial advantage. Please see this important INKISH film and learn from some of the very first first-movers within the PurePrint concept.

INKISH.TV Proudly presents: Partner Thom...
Honestly, this visit was quite a surprise. Most companies in the world aim for growth and fortunately, there is not one single recipe for success. Buchs is from a medium size town in Denmark, Randers - and is a quite old company. It used to be a traditional printing company but the current partners have turned Buchs into a diverse business focusing on communication from A to Z. They have acquired Internet companies. They have acquired signage companies and what is also quite interesting is their business in Vietnam where 55 employees produce pre-press for magazines. Actually almost EVERY magazine from the larger publishers in Denmark. See, Like, Get Inspired by seeing this quite unusual company from Denmark.
