Citec has signed a partnership agreement with ESAB AB, Welding Equipment in Laxå, Sweden. The contract that runs until the end of 2012 is for the supply of engineering and information management services.

ESAB is a world leader in the welding and cutting industries as well as an international supplier of products, know-how and services. Initially Citec will be providing services for ESAB within project management, mechanical design and calculation as well as technical writing and illustration.

“An important target in ESAB’s strategy is to work with key partners, says Pär Carlson, Engineering Manager at ESAB. Citec strengthens the flexibility of our operations and has during several years of cooperation proven to be a reliable partner to Esab,” Carlson continues.

Citec’s office in Örebro will continue to expand in order to meet the increased demand on the market.

“Citec’s business idea to build long term partnerships together with the broad scope of services within engineering and information management is a key factor for being awarded the partnership agreement with ESAB”, says Jan-Erik Björklund, Sales Manager at Citec.
