ABB Group to establish engineering centre in Lithuania
The company's representatives Bo Henriksson and Kestutis Jablonskis announced about their plans after today's meeting with Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius, reports LETA/ELTA.
Prime minister's adviser on economic and financial affairs Mykolas Majauskas said that the centre is expected to employ around 30 new engineers every year.
"The works on the opening of the center should be started this year. Also, around 30 jobs for new engineers should be offered every year. The company would not only target the Lithuanian market but also foreign markets. Lithuania has already seen perfect examples of developing service export," the advisor said.
ABB Lithuania is part of ABB Group, a global leader in the energy and automation field, which started activities in Lithuania in 1992. It was one of the first international groups to open up a company in Vilnius.
ABB Group employs 135,000 specialists from above 100 countries. The company's turnover in Lithuania last year accounted for nearly LTL 55 million (EUR 16 million).
