The Hermes Export Prize is awarded from the Swedish Fund for Export Development. The goal is to encourage Swedish businesses to increase their export efforts.
This is accomplished by annually awarding grants intended to develop and strengthen Swedish exports.
The biggest and most prestigious award is the Hermes Export Prize.
The award has since 1981 been assigned to companies who have presented a positive and stable export performance.
So, as the headline reveals, this year it was our turn here at Tacton Systems to step up to the top of the podium and receive the beautiful bronze statuette delivered by H.M. Crown Princess Victoria Bernadotte!
The winning criteria
The jury, consisting of representatives of the Fund for Export Development, declares a winner among the nominees through the following critera:
- Show positive growth of export/foreign sales over the past three years.
- Export products and services produced in Sweden.
- Export products and services to many different markets.
- Demonstrate a good economic development with continuous positive operating.

Besides the honor, the prize is a bronze statuette by the renowned Swedish artist Thomas Qvarsebo.
