Endress+Hauser to strengthen operations in Finland by starting new sales company
Swiss-based supplier of industrial process measurement and automation solutions develops sales and service operations in Finland
In the future Endress+Hauser Oy will be the exclusive provider of Endress+Hauser field devices and related solutions and services in the Finnish market. The new company will start operations as of 1 July 2015 and resume all business responsibilities which include maintaining the longstanding customer relationships with companies in the Finnish process industries.
The company is a subsidiary of the internationally operating Endress+Hauser AG. Previously Endress+Hauser and Metso’s valve business shared operations under the Metso Endress+Hauser joint venture company.
Along with these changes the company will further concentrate on its core competences according to the corporate strategy. Endress+Hauser already serves customers in six locations in Finland, and the plan is to further expand and develop local expertise around the country. This will be achieved by effectively utilizing the parent company’s global operating models, broad industrial knowledge and efficient logistics.
Benefiting from local expertise
“By combining our parent company’s efficient operating models and high-quality products, with our existing local expertise and knowledge, we can be a truly reliable and competitive partner for our customers,” Tuomo Saukkonen, Managing Director of Endress+Hauser Oy, said.
“Additionally we see that Endress+Hauser’s highly developed Plant Asset Management offering will serve as a basis for our operations, enabling cost-efficient field device management and e-commerce.”
Endress+Hauser has successfully grown its business worldwide and now wants to place further emphasis on better serving Finnish industries. The new company aims to further increase market share in Finland by bringing out new products, services and solutions to address the needs of process industries.
