(Marchtrenk, 25 April 2022) Early in 2022, TGW's Lithuanian unit in Kaunas celebrated its fifth birthday while at the same time welcoming its fiftieth employee. What began with two employees in 2017 has developed into a high-performance competence centre with over 50 highly-qualified specialists in controls, software and project engineering, and all over the course of just five years.
Lithuania forms part of the TGW Northern Europe Hub. The hub encompasses locations in Great Britain, the Netherlands, Sweden and Lithuania: over 500 experts plan and implement highly-automated logistics systems and support them during live operation. Their customers include companies such as Urban Outfitters, stichd and the eGrocery specialist Picnic.
Within the first year of its existence, TGW Lithuania had expanded to 25 employees. Initially, they focussed mainly on controls, in particular on software development, emulation and commissioning. The unit's competences were gradually expanded to include project engineering and simulation. "We have plenty of orders on the books, and the coming months are looking great," affirms David Hibbett, CEO Northern Europe. "We are therefore all the more delighted that we have TGW Lithuania's expertise to draw on."
"Over the course of the last five years, we have established a successful organisation with highly qualified employees," emphasises Country Manager Vytautas Janilionis. "TGW Lithuania is ready for new tasks and challenges, and we're looking forward to the next five years!"
