LM Glasfiber, a Denmark-based manufacturer of fiberglass blades for wind turbines, is planning to move its headquarters from Lunderskov to Kolding, Denmark, to accommodate the company's recent growth. The move, scheduled to take place in stages in 2008, involves approximately 300 employees working within different corporate functions and research and development.

The new address for the LM Glasfiber headquarters will be Company Park, Jupitervej 6, 6000 Kolding.

"Following our strong international expansion, our corporate functions and R&D staff in Denmark have grown by more than 20 percent in the last 12 months, and we are currently working to attract more than 50 engineers and technicians to our Danish R&D center to support our strong innovation and technology drive," says Roland M. Sundén, LM Glasfiber's chief executive officer. "Our move to Kolding will give us a solid future base in Denmark for offering unique global career opportunities in an industry with strong growth prospects."

LM Glasfiber's lab and testing facilities will remain in Lunderskov.
