INDUSTRIAL PROJECTS AND ENGINEERING SERVICES
IN EASTERN EUROPE


Russia should not be looked at as a huge market for export, as an interesting supply for raw materials or as a country with convenient sub-contractors. It must be understood as a vast area for true commercial growth and genuine industrial developments on fast growing markets for the next decades.

But key to success and to lasting development in Russia unquestionably is the creation of domestic value adding activities.

Russia is no "low cost" country. Russia decided on a technology intensive development and on internationalisation. Nevertheless, the heritage of former planned economy still is overall sharply visible with outdated technologies, obsolete machines and poorly efficient organisations.





Truly, key to future and to international competitiveness undeniably calls for an increasing address to advanced engineering and consulting services in order to modernise equipment, processes and organisations.


In order to serve western clients who acknowledged the necessity for creation of domestic Value Adding and eastern industrial clients willing to challenge international competition, EAST WEST Engineering decided to develop amidst eastern emerging markets and established in Russia.

Our permanent concern :
Strengthen our client's organisation with a lasting competitive advantage.
