First generation retires
Co-founder of Vónin Sámal Jacobsen and his wife Inga Olivia Jacobsen have together with Trúgvi Bech decided to retire from their work at Vónin.
Sámal was one of the co-founders of Vónin back in 1969 and has worked at Vónin on and off up through the years where he also was fishing with a number of trawlers. For several years he was stationed at Vónin's branch in Newfoundland, which was called Hopedale Fishing Gear at that time.
Inga Olivia started to work at Vónin in 1980 where she worked in the production.There were a couple of years that she was away from Vónin, but since her return in 1997 she has worked in the office at Vónin's headquarters in Fuglafjørður.
Trúgvi Bech first started to work at Vónin in 1978 when he between trips at sea worked on the netloft in Tórshavn. This pattern continued until the mid 90's when Trúgvi began to work permanently, and also was production foreman for a number of years at Vónin's branch in Tórshavn.
We want to thank Sámal, Inga Olivia and Trúgvi for their time and high dedication to Vónin and wish them all the best in the future!
