Etteplan and Valmet launch cooperation in Poland
Etteplan’s expansion in the Polish market continues, and the company will now begin offering engineering services to Valmet and other companies operating in the country.
Etteplan and Valmet have agreed on cooperation in Poland. Under the agreement, Etteplan will establish a unit in Poland that will focus especially on mechanical engineering, initially primarily to serve Valmet’s needs. The unit will serve Valmet in Poland but also in other Central European countries. The agreement is a continuation of the companies’ long-term and in-depth collaboration in several other market areas. Etteplan already has units focusing on embedded systems and IoT, as well as on technical documentation in Poland.
“Poland and its surrounding areas are important markets, especially for Valmet’s services operations. Central Europe is home to a high number of paper machines that will need different types of upgrades in the near future. It’s great to be able to work with Etteplan in this geographical area, too. They know our machines and how we operate, and our cooperation has always gone smoothly,” says Engineering Manager Anssi Tuuri at Valmet’s SER MIL Office in Gliwice, Poland.
“This agreement with Valmet is an important one for us, as it marks the start of our engineering services offering in Poland. Demand especially for mechanical engineering is high in Poland and its surrounding areas, but our customer base is also interested in electrical and automation engineering. The establishment of a unit focusing on engineering services is a continuation of our expansion in the Polish market. Last year we established a technical documentation team and opened up a new office in Poznań,” says Etteplan’s Riku Riikonen, Senior Vice President, Engineering services. “Our aim is to extend our entire service offering to all our current markets”, he continues.
Etteplan’s customer base in Poland also includes several customers that operate in Central European countries, especially in relation to software development and IoT. In 2017, Etteplan expanded is operations in Poland from Wroclaw to Poznan in order to serve the local customer base and to receive recruitment support especially in the area of IoT. In Poland Etteplan has both Polish and international customers, such as ABB, Nokia, Viessmann and Diehl. Etteplan currently has roughly 100 employees and, with subcontractors included, a total staff of approximately 150 in Poland.
