The leading provider of engineering software solutions is pleased to announce it will be embracing a new brand and honed vision for the future of the smart engineering technology market, as well as extending its expertise into new areas such as Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC).
Intergraph Process, Power & Marine, which was acquired by Hexagon AB in July 2010, will now be known as Hexagon PPM.
Hexagon PPM is focused on delivering end-to-end information technology solutions that drive efficiencies during the design, construction and operation of industrial facilities and large-scale construction projects.
Because of Intergraph’s first-in-class reputation, Hexagon PPM products will continue to carry the Intergraph brand name.
‘PPM’ is retained as a nod to the key industries of process, power, and marine; however, Hexagon PPM will expand its base to serve industries beyond its traditional core.
Recent acquisitions, including project controls technology (EcoSys) and fabrication automation technology (NESTIX Oy), and the recently launched HxGN SMART Build solution targeted at enterprise BIM construction execution for the AEC industry, are enabling Hexagon PPM to diversify its customer base.
The company’s new president, Mattias Stenberg, assumed PPM’s helm in January, transitioning from Hexagon’s Chief Strategy Officer, a role he held since 2009.
Stenberg said: "The name change isn’t just a name change.
"It represents a closer alignment with Hexagon that will open up new doors to truly leverage the depth and breadth of Hexagon’s innovations and technological capabilities.
"It’s an opportunity to overcome the slow pace of change that has characterised PPM’s primary industries over the past 20 years."
