We operate the program OneEngineering globally, and the main management departments, together with the core of the project management team are located in Søborg, where GEA has its largest Nordic office with about 600 employees.

Taking this into consideration, the projects are both technical as well as transformational, and impact the majority of GEA's approximately 18,000 employees.
