MORE EFFECTIVELY                                                                

Etteplan Oyj and the Swedish company Intertek Semko AB as well as Intertek      
Commercial and Electrical Division China have signed cooperation agreements that
apply to businesses in Finland, Sweden and China. The aim of the cooperation is 
to provide a service portfolio that supports customers' operations on new       
markets effectively.                                                            

Global machine and equipment manufacturers broaden their operations by entering 
new markets with new product launches and production transfers closer to new    
markets. New market entries require design of products and production and       
equipment manufacturing according to country's authority regulations and        
standards. Design needs to be based on up-to-date and accurate information of   
authority regulations and standards that often change quickly. Intertek can     
provide this information to Etteplan's customer projects enabling high quality  
and time saving in technical design work and product information management.    

Etteplan supports its customers in technology transfers with versatile technical
design and product information solutions and localization services. Cooperation,
that has commenced with Intertek, broadens service selection even further and   
functions as an effective part in customer's technology transfer project        

Etteplan has a strong technical design and product information competence as    
well as solid long term customer relationships with global machine and equipment
manufacturers operating in Nordic countries. Etteplan's strengths include       
versatile expertise services, efficient operational services and cost effective 
offshoring from company's units in China.
