NPE has considerable practical experience of engineering and consulting projects with a history going back over 40 years.
Together we are more
It all began in 1980 when Kulplan Oy was founded in Tampere. It was from the very beginning when Kulplan Oy provided expert services in automation and electrical engineering. A few years later in 1984 New Project Oy was founded in Espoo, and strong project and engineering knowhow was further strengthened when Kulconsult Oy was founded in 1987 in Tampere.
In the late 1980s certain operations were integrated and the first common marketing name was introduced, "Kul Group". The integration was formalized in the beginning of the 1990s and for cost effective reasons the companies moved under one roof. In the mid-90s the new marketing name "NP Engineering" was introduced.
During 2005-2006, New Project Oy's business was discontinued. The operations and personnel were transferred to other companies in the group.
Towards international fields
Ever since Kulplan Oy was founded the operation has been international, taking part in our clients' export projects. Our employees were often at negotiations, installation supervision or commissioning assignments at sites all over the world. Direct orders from foreign clients were received in the 1980's.
In 2003 the companies started strategic planning in order to develop business activities, with target setting up to 5 years ahead. Growth started, and it is still going on. Today NPE is aiming to reinforce its' business activities in Finland and increase the activities in foreign countries.
New visual identity
In September 2006 a new visual identity and brand architecture were introduced and the marketing name of the companies was changed to NPE which comes from the words New Project Engineering. This combination of letters denotes our professional skills, customer orientation and hunger for being innovative and successful.
At the same time the company names were unified. At the moment NPE Kulplan Oy and NPE Kulconsult Oy are the companies which form NPE.
