Remaking engineering services

Etteplan is an industry forerunner in providing
productized engineering services worldwide. The service concept provides
tangible benefits, if you are looking for the best engineering expertise while
being able to focus on your core business.  

services are based on in-depth and versatile understanding of engineering requirements
for industrial machinery in various industries. In short, the company helps its
customers fulfil their technology visions. For example, Volvo is relaying on
Etteplan’s climate technology expertise and Boeing on Etteplan’s high-quality
technical documentation services. 

More and
more companies are today outsourcing engineering and technical documentation to
engineering services companies. There is a clear business case for doing so.
Investing in competence development in-house is expensive and takes time. In
addition, the job market for engineers is highly competitive.

”In Germany there is a huge demand for engineers with top-notch expertise
and we can help. We have developed a unique service concept, which meets the
needs of equipment and machinery manufacturers in today’s unstable and
competitive market environment”, Petri Ikonen SVP Etteplan Technical
Documentation Services says.

Unparalleled service portfolio

”Etteplan’s service
concept is based on high-value added Managed Services. In practice, the company utilizes its expertise in over 50 sites to meet the customer’s
needs in design engineering, embedded systems & IoT and technical

The range of our services
combined with our service concept is unique in the industry. We can help
customers in any design engineering, digitalization or technical documentation
challenge. On top of that we ensure that the customer gets the service in the
most cost-efficient way, concludes Petri Ikonen.

Does your business need more muscles?

Michael Bauer, Area Manager for Etteplan
Germany, reminds that Etteplan is not available only for global companies but
also for the SMEs, which don´t necessarily have the capacity to invest in
setting up their own engineering or technical documentation organization. ”We
can help our customers get extra muscles to their projects without having to fight
for experts with bigger companies.”

Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance in Germany

One great example of how Etteplan
utilizes its global pool of expertise is the order from the German Federal Office of Civil
Protection and Disaster Assistance (Part of the Federal Ministry of Interior).
Etteplan’s task was to deliver measurement equipment and upgrade-packages of
the measurement system used in CBRN-exploration vehicles to detect hazardous
air particles, Ikonen explains.

According to Bauer the software
development work was delivered by Etteplan’s experts in Sweden whereas the German
units delivered the integration of the new measurement equipment, the technical
documentation, hardware and software, the logistics of the upgrade packages,
installation, support and training. ”This project is a great proof of the
quality of our experts’ work, and competence as well as our company’s ability
to meet the needs of the most demanding customers, he concludes.”
