At a formal ceremony, at the House of Nobility in Stockholm, on April 9th, 2013, the Swedish Princess Désirée presented the Medal of Entrepreneurship to Margareta and Tommy Malmsten.
The medal is a recognition for outstanding entrepreneurship. Only 10 entrepreneurs are awarded yearly, by the Royal Patriotic Society.
Medals of Entrepreneurship are awarded to businesspeople, with ownership influence who created and developed businesses. Their long-term, meaningful work inspires others and creates a better Sweden.
In a brief statement Margareta and Tommy Malmsten commented the award;
We are of course very happy for every major order that we get. However, this reaches another level. It goes outside everything else, says Margareta and Tommy Malmsten.

Malmsten streamlines operations with a new ERP!
We are excited to inform you that as of December 3rd, 2012, we are implementing a new ERP-system, Enterprise Resource Planning system, at Malmsten, this resulting from our aim of offering the best possible service and efficiency, and to maintain our highest quality standards.
After a thorough study we have selected the Microsoft Dynamics AX. We believe that it will offer us a modern platform with new possibilities for E-business and other tools to better face future demands and to continue our development. There will be great benefits for all our customers as well, with faster service and more accurate inventory information.
We value your business and our partnership. We have worked hard to prepare a smooth transition. However, we are informing you today as you might notice some interruptions in service and there may be some difficulties at start-up. We thank you, in advance, for your understanding and cooperation.
With the new system you will notice the following:
- Electronic invoicing. Future invoices will be sent electronically in PDF-format. Hopefully this should be a more environmentally friendly approach. Though we understand if some of you still require a paper version by regular post, and it is no problem for us to continue this, but please let us know.
- New items numbers. However, do not worry as we will be equipped to take orders for some time with the “older” item numbers.
Thank you and please do not hesitate to contact us with any concerns. Looking forward to our continued partnership!
