GROWTH HAS BEEN swift for engineering office Co-Engineering – over the past two years the seven-year-old company has nearly doubled its number of employees. Sami Kivioja, CEO and founder of Co-Engineering accredits the success to good co-operation, the core of the company.
“We help the big players in the market be their best by offering our best: specialised skills through close co-operation. Business takes place human to human.”
While Co-Engineering’s main market still is in the Vaasa energy cluster, it has become evident that its high-quality project engineering is needed elsewhere as well. Today the company has offices in Vaasa, Seinäjoki, Tampere and the Helsinki area, and two years ago, Co-Engineering Nordic, a subsidiary, was founded in Östersund, Sweden.
CO-ENGINEERING’S BUSINESS is in many ways international, partly through its export-led customers, but also in the sense of its diverse personnel.
“We hire good people when we find them, regardless of where they are from. For instance, I’ve had really good experiences with employees from Ukraine and Russia”, says Kivioja.
For Co-Engineering, serving your personnel is equally important to serving your customers. The team spirit in the company is strong and everyone is equal.
“It is important that we take good care of our employees. They are the ones who directly serve our customers and leave an impression of our company.”
ON THE BUSINESS SIDE, the buzzword at the moment is ‘digital twin’. Co-Engineering offers customers these digital simulations and models, which replicate real-world applications, such as renewable energy plants or production equipment. A digital twin is particularly useful for sales purposes, either as a digital sales model of the future, or for forecasting production timelines and processes.
Another topical offering among Co-Engineering’s services are power quality measurements. Together with Swedish Unipower, Co-Engineering provides instruments and services for monitoring and controlling power quality in the power network.
“The product is like a black box, it can trace disturbances in the network and offer insights to trends in power quality“, explains Kivioja.
