Etteplan strategy

Increasing value for customers

We are a forerunner in the engineering industry due to our broad technology expertise and advanced service offering. The key objective of our strategy is to create even higher value for our customers. We want to support our customers in the industrial transformation as well as grow and experiment new solutions together with them.

We are an international growth company. Our target is to grow by approximately 15 per cent per year, which would lead to revenue of more than EUR 500 million in 2024. We seek growth organically and, in a consolidating market, also through acquisitions. Our organic growth is based not only on the key elements of our strategy but also our broad service offering and expertise as well as our strong market position. By making acquisitions, we aim to increase our competence capital as well as grow our presence and service offering.
