The main objective of this new partnership is to support manufacturers in Scandinavia and Baltic countries that want to launch their products faster and easier on international markets.  

With globalization rapidly connecting people, countries and organizations around the world, unlocking new markets is essential for innovative manufacturers that want to be successful in today’s market.

From R&D testing up to final certification, DEKRA poses as an innovation partner during the entire process within international markets. This allows us to help manage product launches more efficiently, thus helping manufacturers in Scandinavia and Baltic countries save time and money. 

By 2025, just in time to celebrate its 100th year in business, DEKRA hopes to be the global partner for a safe world thanks to its clear and aspirational vision for the future. Kaira Clan will assist DEKRA in achieving this goal by acting as sales managers in Scandinavia and Baltic regions.
