Electronics maker Fujitsu Ltd. formed a partnership Monday with a subsidiary of Siemens AG of Germany in the field of global computer services.

The agreement will allow Fujitsu to offer its Japanese customers better services in Europe and North America, where Tokyo-based Fujitsu does not have direct operations.

Siemens Business Services will meanwhile be able to take advantage of Fujitsu’s strength in Asia.

The companies will work together in consulting, systems integration and infrastructure management, the firms said. Siemens Business Services ranks fifth in IT services in Europe and employs 34,500 workers worldwide, according to the company.

“The agreement will considerably enhance our capability to care for our multinational customers,” said Paul Stodden, Siemens Business Services group president.

Fujitsu and Siemens have worked together in the past.
