Today, the variety of services provided by Kaunas centre is especially broad: from the detailed system design to its launch and handover to the clients. That includes designing the mechanics, component selection, various levels of software development and testing, both in virtual environment and in the real-life objects, and other various system development tasks.

According to Vytautas Janilionis, Lithuanian Branch Manager at TGW Logistics Group, the team of engineers in Lithuania became an integral part of the company in the past four years and have already proven their professionalism delivering exceptional results.

We were pleasantly surprised by how easily and quickly our new hires integrated into our multicultural company known for its high internal standards, strong culture and values.
