Patria to outsource technical documentation and design engineering to Etteplan
Etteplan will be responsible for Patria Land Systems Oy’s spare parts book production and part of its vehicle equipment engineering starting from August 3, 2015. Five Patria employees will be transferred to Etteplan as existing employees.
Etteplan has been Patria’s technical documentation and engineering partner for a long time. The new outsourcing agreement will further deepen the partnership between the two companies, with Etteplan assuming responsibility for the functions and their development.
– We have confidence in Etteplan’s expertise in the implementation and development of technical documentation and engineering services, says Pekka Korhonen, SVP, Engineering at Patria.
– We will provide flexible services to Patria in response to its changing needs. Patria will benefit from our advanced technical documentation and engineering solutions, says Veikko Lamminen, SVP, Operations Finland at Etteplan.
The newly signed agreement continues the trend of customer companies outsourcing non-core activities to Etteplan. Companies that have outsourced functions to Etteplan this year include Husqvarna Group, with Etteplan responsible for the production and maintenance of the technical documentation of all of the Group’s products and brands.
