Press release – Published: 17.12.2013 9:06:00

Etteplan, a provider of engineering design and technical product information services, has signed significant deals with new customers and strengthened its position as the leading European engineering company in China:

Etteplan and Unitex Group’s subsidiary Unitex Germany have signed a framework agreement according to which Etteplan’s Chinese unit will be responsible for the engineering design of Unitex’s lifting equipment according to the requirements of the end customer. The engineering work and engineering analysis can be transferred from Germany to China based on Etteplan’s continuous service model, which will bring Unitex flexibility when there are changes in demand.

Etteplan supplies among other customer-specific engineering services for Caterpillar products to the Chinese company Lei Shing Hong Limited, a Chinese distributor of Caterpillar products. Thanks to the service solution, Lei Shing Hong leverages from a vast array of Etteplan’s engineering capability and capacity, allowing them to meet the requirements of their customers in the most efficient manner.

– In the present market conditions, Etteplan’s service solutions offer customers flexibility and reliability. Our long-term experience in the Chinese market gives us a unique position to assist our Western customers to achieve cost savings in engineering design and production. Further proof of our established market position is the growing interest shown by local companies towards Etteplan’s services, says Robert Berg, SVP Solutions and Business Development at Etteplan.
