The accession of the firm will enable Deloitte to provide its clients with greater expertise across product life cycle management software.
Deloitte acquires data specialist firm D-Twin
Deloitte has acquired data and product lifecycle management (PLM) firm D-Twin as part of its expansion of offerings and market presence in the area.
Deloitte said D-Twin specialised in the cost-effective and low-risk delivery of Siemens-enabled PLM systems that enables organisations to seamlessly collaborate and share a continuous digital footprint from design and development through the entire lifecycle of an asset or product.
Deloitte Consulting smart industries leader Jess Sherwood said the acquisition was an important step as the firm looks to keep pace as the nation evolves.
“As Australia seeks to reindustrialise and take advantage of future growth industries on the global stage, it requires advanced technologies, innovations and active participation in global supply chains,” said Ms Sherwood. “PLM technologies provide a platform to enable this value to be unlocked through the continuous digital thread spanning design, manufacturing and through-life value derived from any product or asset.”
“On their own, Deloitte and D-Twin have been delivering high value PLM client solutions for a number of years across complex product and asset heavy sectors. The inclusion of the D-Twin team into Deloitte’s Smart Industries offering, enhances our ability to serve our clients in Australia with the PLM solutions they need to participate in global supply chains and create genuine sovereignty.”
“Integrating the highly experienced D-Twin team into our firm will add further scale and depth of capability, and create the largest PLM group in the country, including across Siemens’ digital applications – from consultancy to implementation, and embedded support to tailed solutions. We’re excited to be welcoming them to Deloitte.”
D-twin founder and director Steven Godsell said merging with Deloitte would be not only a positive for his business but also for the firm’s customers.
“At D-Twin, our mission has always been simple, and that’s to help our clients maximise the value of their data via end-to-end PLM software implementation and integration,” said Mr Godsell.
“We’ve built a great, well-regarded business in a relatively short time that helps organisations harmonise product, data, people and processes.”
“We’re excited about Deloitte’s vision for how our people can now take PLM client offerings to the next level.”
D-twin managing director Barry Tregidgo said the move made sense as the two businesses shared similar principles.
“Deloitte has a strong market presence in technology consulting and working with clients to deliver the benefits well-executed PLM technologies can offer,” said Mr Tregidgo.
“Our culture and values are closely aligned, and the time is right to take what is a logical next step for our team.”
Deloitte said the team of 18 would officially join Deloitte on 17 July and would include directors Andrew Bradford, Barry Tregidgo, Brendon van Ras, Garry Russell and Steven Godsell.
