Fujitsu and Moventas sign wide-ranging ICT services contract

Helsinki, 26 February, 2013

Fujitsu Finland Oy and Moventas Gears Oy have entered into a major ICT services contract whereby Fujitsu will provide Moventas with global ICT services.

This agreement, which covers both infrastructure and application services, marks a continuation of a long-standing collaboration. Fujitsu's Patja services to Moventas cover the company's entire IT infrastructure, including availability and on-site support services, data centre and capacity services, cloud services and WAN network (Wide Area Network). Moreover, they incorporate email, SharePoint as well as voice and mobile services. The SAP solution covers financial accounting and travel expenses accounting.

”Our collaboration has been working well. Fujitsu provides us with an integrable end-to-end solution that adapts to our needs and evolves continually. Continual development is ensured by active co-operation in a variety of forums, such as Patja Future Forum and innovation and advisory committees. They have enabled us to optimise the services. Through collecting user experiences and feedback we have together shaped the service model, in terms of computer replacement cycles and training, for example,” says CIO Markku Rytkönen of Moventas.

Moventas provides power transmission solutions for wind energy, pulp and paper as well as the mining industry, and comprehensive services for the maintenance of gears. Moventas has 970 employees in 14 countries. Moventas was established in 2005, when the Metso Drives unit was acquired from Metso.  

Moventas has two production plants and head office in Jyväskylä. The company also has sites in Vantaa, Karkkila and Oulu. Internationally Moventas has operations in Sweden, Germany, the United States, Canada and China. Recently they opened sites in Australia, Brazil, Chile, Italy and France.

Moventas is a growing global customer, whose IT is up-to-date and in good condition. During the agreement negotiations we looked thoroughly through all the services in terms of how they will be provided from now on and how they will be developed. The new contract period starts off in positive circumstances and we are going to do our best in maintaining the high service level going forward,” says director Antero Vuorio of Fuijtsu.
