Pioneers in biotechnology manufacturing, biomega®, has announced several new appointments for its new Port of Hirtshals biorefinery, Denmark. The latest is Allan Andersen as the company’s new financial accountant.
The new appointment for Hirtshals comes prior to its official opening in early autumn, where biomega® will soon begin production of SalMe Peptides, one of its newly launched ranges of human nutrition products.
Andersen joins the biomega® team in Denmark, which includes Nick Christensen as plant manager and Peter Krüger as technical manager, from Danish-based company DanHatch Holding – part of DanHatch Group – that specialises in broilers and the production and sale of piglets.
With more than a decade of experience in accounts keeping at DanHatch Holding, Andersen’s broad knowledge of the industry is evidenced by his experience as a financial controller at Digital Data Communications Scandinavia, where he was responsible for all financial reporting to its parent company in Germany.
Renate de Cartier, Head of Accounting at biomega®, commented: “Today, we welcome Allan Andersen to the biomega® team, who will take on a new accounting position at our state-of-the-art biorefinery in Hirtshals. Allan is one of many new employees beginning their journey with the team this month and we are excited to see him hit the ground running.
“Allan’s 30-year experience in accounting combined with his knowledge in a manufacturing environment and various financial systems means he will quickly become an asset to our team.”
Commenting on his new role, Andersen said: “Joining biomega® at such an exciting growth and development phase presents many new and interesting financial opportunities. As a team, we have the capability to put our best foot forward and deliver an efficient accounting department at Denmark. It’s great to already feel part of a team that wants to keep improving and a company that challenges itself to work more sustainably for the good of the environment.”
