Baltic Engineers UAB Consulting Engineers and Project Managers bought 100% of shares of a Lithuanian subsidiary of Finnish Project Management Company Pöyry PLC. This transaction enables the Lithuanians to manage more engineering projects and to strengthen their positions in the Baltic region.

We chose the latter option: the Finnish company has been in Lithuania since 2003 and has accumulated valuable experience”, explains the reasons of the transaction Mr. Darius Kvedaras, Managing Director of Baltic Engineers UAB.
This year, Baltic Engineers UAB is launching several new projects the implementation of which will require additional resources. According to Mr. Kvedaras, the company so far had 16 professionals, but this number will grow after completion of the transaction.
