The Swedish Chamber of Commerce in France awarded boatbuilder Beneteau the French Partner of the Century prize for the strength and longevity of its relationship with Volvo Penta.

Through many years of collaboration, the companies have produced several new technologies for the recreational boating industry.

Beneteau received the prize in a ceremony that was attended by King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden and Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.

The ceremony was part of the chamber’s centenary gala celebrating Swedish-French friendship and a century of Swedish companies in France. The event was held at Petit Palais on Nov. 30.

“It is a great honor and personally gratifying for me to receive this award, which highlights the exemplary partnership between the Beneteau Group and Volvo Penta,” Beneteau head Annette Bénéteau-Roux said in a statement.

“This is the result of a long-term collaboration that has promoted innovation in technology, but mostly it recognizes the many people who participated in and supported our initiatives. It is never easy to innovate, and I wish to dedicate this award especially to the new generations that will continue our work.”
