The Finnish wireless-based products, services and solutions developer Elektrobit Group Plc said on Wednesday that it has agreed to sell its aerospace-related business to SF-Design AB for an undisclosed sum.

As part of the arrangement six Elektrobit employees will transfer to SF-Design.

Elektrobit on Wednesday also announced that it will shed 30 jobs as part of its measures to improve efficiency. The job cuts affect the production solutions and systems testing solutions units in Kuopio and Salo in Finland.

Elektrobit announced in August that it will transfer the manufacture of production automation systems from its facility in Kuopio to China and Estonia, while at the same time concentrating the product development activities of its systems testing unit to Oulu in Finland.
