Seabrook Technology Group is delighted to announce its partnership with Siemens Industry Software in the UK and Ireland. The partnership enables Seabrook to offer Siemens’ de facto standard PLM (Product Life Cycle Management) software to its new and existing clients in the UK and Ireland. This partnership will strengthen Siemens distribution of the Teamcenter® Product Life Cycle Management software in the UK and Ireland and ensures the regions transition to digitized manufacturing.

The partnership is expected to generate revenue of over €1 million Euro in the first year to eighteen months for Seabrook. It will lead to the creation of eight new high-level jobs, six at its Cork offices and two in the UK. The technology firm has been operating in Ireland for 26 years. Over the past three years it has tripled its workforce and expanded into the US, with offices in California and Indiana.

Siemens PLM Software’s digital technology is transforming manufacturing and allows clients to develop and optimise products on an entirely virtual basis. The software effectively ‘closes the loop’ in the manufacturing process; it enhances and integrates every aspect of the process, from planning and development through to production and support.

The PLM industry is predicted to be worth US$50.7 billion by 2017. (CIMdata)

Commenting on the news, Seabrook Technology Group CEO and founder Sean O’Sullivan said:
“Seabrook welcomes this very significant partnership with Siemens PLM software. We are pleased to be at the helm of rolling out this pioneering technology, which will be especially beneficial to the medical device and pharmaceutical industries.
PLM ensures improved traceability of products and will have an immediate positive effect for the consumer or product end-user, who with the global lean towards wearable medical devices, are demanding greater transparency in product production.
By adding Siemens’ Teamcenter solution to its existing Camstar offering Seabrook is uniquely placed to realise the Digital Factory concept, which has been hailed as the most revolutionary move in manufacturing since the invention of the assembly line.”
Siemens Industry Software VP and UK Managing Director, Robin Hancock also welcomed the new partnership, stating:
“Seabrook’s experience in Life Science industries and their significant customer base makes them an extremely attractive partner for Siemens PLM Software and we envisage major growth for our Teamcenter range of products in these industries”
