Marel – a success story of Icelandic / American relations

I had the pleasure of visiting Marel, one of Iceland’s top multinational companies with a worldwide reach and a world class leader in food processing technology.   Marel’s story captures the spirit of creativity, entrepreneurship, and hard work that characterize successful enterprises in Iceland and the United States.  Marel began as a small start up in Iceland and greatly expanded its reach and operations by entering the U.S. market and establishing production facilities there.  This is what happens when two countries share the same values, business outlook, and work ethic.
