Pepe Douer invested with the Order of Industrial Merit

José (Pepe) Douer was invested by President Álvaro Uribe Vélez with the Order of Industrial Merit due to his contributions to the growth and development of Colombian industry.

This was an award presented by the National Government.

The President pointed out that José Douer “very well expresses the investment confidence accompanied by social responsibility, as well as a support for those social goals the Colombian State has to achieve.”

In addition, José “Pepe” Douer said: “It has taken me by surprise; just a month ago they told me about it and I was very grateful. This is dedicated to all my employees since both my success and development have significantly depended on them.”
