Restructuring at Fujitsu Technology Solutions

Fujitsu Technology Solutions

Munich, February 07, 2013

Fujitsu Technology Solutions, which operates Fujitsu’s business in Continental Europe, Middle East, Africa and India (CEMEA&I), today announced a significant restructuring and change program.   

In response to the increasingly challenging economic environment and to fundamental changes in the ICT market, Fujitsu Technology Solutions is balancing the company’s business model towards services and solutions, based on its strong product and technology portfolio. Fujitsu’s share of the services market in the CEMEA&I region is relatively low and clearly presents an opportunity to grow. 

In order to increase profitability, Fujitsu Technology Solutions will streamline and balance its product portfolio and coordinate research and development, supply and manufacturing more seamlessly with Fujitsu’s operations in Japan. In this respect, the close proximity of Fujitsu Technology Solutions’ Augsburg factory to customers in Europe is regarded as a considerable competitive edge. 

Fujitsu Technology Solutions is aiming at reducing annual operating expenses (OPEX) by EUR 150m. As part of the measures towards achieving this, Fujitsu Technology Solutions is considering a headcount adjustment subject to negotiations with the works councils.
