Outsourcing to a reliable partner is a cost-efficient way to handle both risk and capacity.

Manage your risk and capacity by outsourcing

For a company working with industrial projects, it is always challenging to maintain the right personnel capacity. If the capacity is too small, there’s a risk that business will be lost or that personnel will become overloaded with work. On the other hand, if there’s a slump in the order volume, cost effectiveness comes into play and staff reductions are likely to occur. Outsourcing to a reliable partner is therefore a cost-efficient way to handle both risk and capacity.


"When we decided to outsource our engineering department, we had several candidates. The fact that our final choice was Citec was because of know-how, cost efficiency and trust."

Osmo Härkönen, Vice President at Wärtsilä Power Plants 2009
