Engcon’s founder Stig Engström receives a medal from H.M. The King of Sweden at the Royal Palace of Stockholm
On January 28, 2021, Engcon’s founder and owner Stig Engström was presented with “H.M. The King’s Medal of the 12th size with a bright blue ribbon” for his significant contribution to Swedish industry. Due to the pandemic, previously H.M. The King’s Medal could not be awarded in person but during a recent medal ceremony at the Royal Palace of Stockholm Stig Engström was able to receive the honorablemedal from His Majesty The King of Sweden.
His Majesty The King’s Medal, formerly also known as the Court Medal, was instituted around 1814 and is awarded to Swedish and foreign citizens for special merits and also to executives at the Royal Courts of Justice for long and faithful service. This year, Engcon’s founder Stig Engström was awarded the medal for his significant contribution to Swedish industry.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, it was originally not possible to present H.M. The King’s Medal in person, but as the restrictions have now been lifted, a medal ceremony was recently held at the Royal Palace of Stockholm.
His Majesty The King was present, together with Her Majesty Queen Silvia, to hand out the medal to Stig Engström and other medalists.
”I am incredibly happy and proud to have been present at the Royal Palace and received this medal in person, from H.M. The King”, says Stig Engström.
