Luka Koper Turns 49

23.05.2006

On 23rd May Luka Koper - namely Luka Koper the Port and Logistics System plc  celebrated its 49th anniversary. This same date back in 1957 witnessed the establishment of Pristanišče Koper, a handling and storage company that during the decades of its growth and development has played a key role in the development of Koper as well as the broader region. The firm’s name has been changed several times, and on 7th June 1996 it was registered as Luka Koper, d.d.

In addition to being the operator of Slovenia’s sole commercial port, Luka Koper is an efficient and successful enterprise that continues to build its competitive advantage on the quality of its services. This year's May anniversary has also been marked by an external audit of the company's management system by SIQ (Slovenian Institute of Quality and Metrology) which concluded that Luka Koper fully meets the requirements of the ISO 9001:2000 quality standard, as well as ISO14001:2004 environment management standard. Now, as a result of the fact that we take our commitment to the environment extremely seriously, Luka Koper is to be awarded new environmental certification.
