Most lay-offs will occur in the first half-year 2009. UK acquisition—new Nearsourcing Centre for long-term sales growth started on the UK market. Swedish mechanical engineering services acquisitio valuable mechanical engineering know-how added close to customers to develop advanced prototypes and for shorter production runs. Acquisition in Norway—start-up of Nearsourcing Centre for additional growth on the Norwegian market.
