Kalmar plans to transfer part of its crane engineering in China to Etteplan, a globally operating engineering company. With the planned long-term agreement, Kalmar aims to improve the efficiency of its crane engineering operations in China by ensuring scalability and cost competitiveness. The parties have signed an agreement regarding the services to be provided by Etteplan. As a consequence, approximately 70 Kalmar engineering employees in China will move to Etteplan. The transferring employees will initially continue to work from their current locations in their current roles and tasks.

I warmly welcome the 70 new experts to the Etteplan team. The agreement shows that our outsourcing solutions are effective and it undoubtedly strengthens our market position in China," says Riku Riikonen, senior vice president of engineering solutions at Etteplan.
