“Whenever someone asks me when and how Newport was founded, they’re always surprised by my answer. Most people believe that Newport is an old company that’s been around forever. That pleases me, because it shows that Newport has a soul and an identity that run far deeper than our roots.”
- Bo-Wilhelm Horndahl
