Eurocon Consulting AB participated in a management buyout of the TIPS Info operations from Tieto Oy. A newly created company named Eurocon MOPSsys AB, based in Örnsköldsvik, with 16 employees will run this business. The company will have offices in Örnsköldsvik, Storuman and through a wholly owned subsidiary in Vancouver, Canada.
Eurocon MOPSsys’ software applications mainly serve the pulp and paper industry with approximately one hundred installations including Sweden, Finland, Germany, Portugal, New Zealand, Australia, United States and Canada.
