Let's talk

2018 m. Lietuva užėmė pirmąją vietą kaip patraukliausia vieta gamintojams Europoje, o pagal gamybinės rizikos indeksą jai skirta antroji vieta pasaulyje. O Klaipėda yra Lietuvos gamybinės veiklos centras, svariai prisidedantis prie šių įvertinimų.

Highly skilled talent pool

Highly skilled talent pool

Klaipeda region has the right kind of talent to help your business grow. How long do you think it took Yazaki, the Japanese global leader in automotive components, to find 200 new specialists for its new Mercedes Benz project in its Klaipeda FEZ facility? Only 2 months.

It’s simple. Klaipeda has the talent and the knowledge to make it happen:

  • We are a city of the young & the talented – 47% of our population is below 40 years old.
  • A labour pool of 160,100 with at least 15,000 annual pipeline of university and college graduates.
  • Nearly 20% of the working population employed in manufacturing, 13% in transport & logistics.

The right knowledge. Klaipeda’s higher education institutions specialize in maritime, mechanical engineering, metal processing, logistics, food technologies and international business education.

Low saturation. Foreign companies are the most desirable employers in Lithuania, but the ratio of jobs created by foreign companies in Klaipeda is still X per 1000 employees. This means the employment market is years away from saturation.

Our teams of highly skilled engineers, technologists, electronics and automation specialists do wonders. It’s not the first time that a manufacturing model developed by Yazaki’s team in Lithuania has been transferred to Yazaki’s global operations.
