„Our company turns a quarter of a century. Over the last 25 years we have tackled many challenges, developed sound business values and laid foundations for further development of Tubes International.
Starting from 1st May 1993, when a handful of people guided by the unforgettable Richard, started to build the company, until today, when the company employs over 450 people of several nationalities in numerous locations, one thing has not changed – the greatest asset of Tubes International are the employees: passionate, dedicated and loyal. You are the true creators of the success of this enterprise and heroes of the 25th anniversary Chronicle, from the first to the very last page.
It is not an accident, that many of you devoted almost entire professional life to Tubes International, and those, who retired, still support the company and its employees. There is already the third generation of “tubes guys” who successfully work among us. Each of these generations has made enormous contribution to the organisation of our company, so it can grow and succeed on the increasingly competitive market.
We all know exactly, that Tubes International would not reach such a high position, if it had not been for the founder and memorable boss – Richard Fredriksen, who unfortunately is not with us any longer.
Every anniversary closes a particular chapter in the history of our enterprise, but at the same time starts a new one. I am sure, that we will write the next chapter of this story the same way we have done so far, that is, arm in arm – by working hard together every day. I am convinced, that as we have done so far, we will still aid each other with initiatives and ideas, which will best serve the development of the organisation.
Tubes International’s vision of the future is inseparable from its history, values, experiences, wise people and hard work. I think, that as long as all these factors are smoothly synchronised and recognised in our company, we can look ahead without fear.
There is one essential element at the heart of our success – our dear Customers and Suppliers without whom, our operations would be pointless. You always were and you always will be very important for us. We have worked long with many of You and made friends over the years, which makes us happy and proud.
I can assure you, that the last 25 years make only a starting point for the long and glorious future of Tubes International – the company we make together.
On this special occasion, on behalf of the owner of the company, the board, supervisory board and myself, I wish my Colleagues, Customers and Suppliers all the very best in their private lives and fulfilment in professional activities. Never lack the power to pursue the goals You set or persistence in accomplishing the tasks entrusted. Let another success that you will surely reach, be a cause of great satisfaction, a stimulus for further development. And that is what I wish You with all my heart.”
