Sweden Pukkila continues with Fujitsu's managed Patja ICT services
Ceramic tiles manufacturer Pukkila Oy and ICT services supplier Fujitsu Services Oy have signed a three-year continuation agreement on Patja IT infrastructure services.
The agreement covers approximately one hundred workstations as well as servers, Fujitsu Push Mail and e-mail services and the monitoring of data communications equipment. Fujitsu will also handle the procurement of Pukkila's IT equipment.
"After conducting a tender process we still found Patja as the best all-round solution for us. Its price-quality ratio is good and the services are effective. Our customer relationship with Fujitsu has established over the years, we know each other quite well after more than eleven years of collaboration. And besides, we save a lot of time and money by not having to start up all the services again," says administrative manager Henrik Lundström.
The IT collaboration of the two companies stretches back to 1998. The agreement expanded to cover the Patja managed services in 2005.
Pukkila is the only producer of ceramic tiles in Finland. The company is known for its varied product range and is a member of the international Ricchetti Group which is one of the leading producers of ceramic tiles in the world. The company's production plant in Turku, Finland, is the only ceramic tiles plant in the Nordic countries and one of the Group's fifteen European production plants.
