The world’s leading engineering software company is today embracing a new brand and a honed vision for enabling the smart digital industrial facility and extending its expertise into new markets like Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC).
Power & Marine – 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.
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.
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.
“The name change
isn't just a name change,” Stenberg said. “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 characterized PPM’s
primary industries over the past 20 years.”
