Mining and tunneling equipment manufacturer Normet in Iisalmi, Finland, is outsourcing its technical documentation and product management functions to Etteplan. The outsourcing is part of Normet’s previously announced cost-savings program and the company’s restructuring.

The agreement enters into effect on December7, 2015. As part of the arrangement, six Normet employees, four from documentation and two from product management, will transfer to Etteplan as existing employees. Etteplan and Normet have been working together for more than 15 years.
