In addition, Miikka Linna, the Purchasing Manager of Efore (USA) Inc., has been transferried to the new sourcing function in China. The unit's task will be to exploit the procurement opportunities that China offers. A local presence and Efore's expanding business operations in China will create a good basis for this.

In the same connection, Matti Viita, the present Key Account Manager of the OEM2 business unit, has been appointed Vice President, BU OEM3.
