Every year the regent of Sweden H.M. King Carl XVI Gustaf decides on the medal award for H.M. the King's medal. This year, Engcon's founder and owner Stig Engström was awarded for his significant contributions within Swedish industry.

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. This year, Stig Engström was awarded the medal for his significant contributions within Swedish industry.

"I received a letter informing me that I had been selected along with five others to be awarded H.M. The King's medal of the 12th size with a bright blue ribbon and that the medal awards ceremony is planned to be carried out at a later date," says Stig Engström, founder and owner of Engcon.

"My mission is to change the digging world to become safer and more efficient. It is therefore incredibly fun that my and Engcon's work is noticed. It is a great honor to be awarded a medal from H.M. the King," says Stig Engström.

In 2021, the following persons will be awarded H.M. the King's medal of the 12th size with a bright blue ribbon:

  • Stig Engström, for his significant contributions within Swedish industry
