Roxtec choose Teamcenter PLM
Roxtec has over 700 employees and delivers sealing solutions for cables and pipes in more than 80 markets. In 2013, Roxtec decided to replace their existing PDM solution with Teamcenter. Roxtec had identified the need for a larger and more modern system in order to continue their success on the global market. With Teamcenter from Siemens Digital Industries, Roxtec gained a high-performance, scalable PLM platform that enables future expansion. Roxtec’s CAD designers around the world now have a reliable system that also supports 3D data from third party vendors.
In May 2013, NEXTAGE performed a Proof of Concept for Roxtec’s business in China. For Roxtec, who had been suffering from low prestanda with their former system, this successful POC was one of the reasons for choosing Teamcenter.
The project of implementing Teamcenter started in September 2013 and was delivered gradually. Nextage managed the software implementation project, and migrated the data from the old system. Nextage also supported Roxtec with process- and methodology development and were present when Roxtec’s project team rolled out Teamcenter in the entire organisation. The deployment and transition ran smoothly and was completed within time and budget.
Roxtec choose Teamcenter PLM for its many capabilities, excellent performance and global support. NEXTAGE continue to work closely with Roxtec, adding knowledge and support as a trusted advisor.
"In Teamcenter we now have a scalable PLM system that enhances collaboration in our global business, and supports future development", says Henrik Jakhammer, global PLM manager at Roxtec International. “We are pleased with our choice, and can see our business grow with the solution."
