By | News | No Comments
 Pictured at the Siemens Channel Partner Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, for the official signing of the US channel partnership contract are Seabrook Technology Group’s Managing Director Sean O’Sullivan, and Siemens PLM Software Vice President of the Americas Channel, Craig Radomski.

Seabrook Technology Group is delighted to announce a significant US channel partnership deal with Siemens PLM Software. The partnership enables Seabrook to offer Siemens’ PLM products to new and existing clients in the US, with particular regard to the medical device manufacturing and biotech sectors.

It follows Seabrook’s 2015 channel partnership agreement in Ireland and the UK. Seabrook expects that the partnership will lead to the creation of four new high-level jobs – three in technology and one in sales. Seabrook has been in operation for 27 years, and in the past four years has tripled its workforce and opened offices in California, Indiana and the UK.

Commenting on the news, Seabrook Technology Group Managing Director and founder Sean O’Sullivan said: “We are delighted to announce this very significant partnership with Siemens PLM Software. To date, our client base in the US has grown by 80% in the last 4 years, and, with the advent of Industry 4.0 and the increased need for smart manufacturing, it is an incredibly exciting time for the industry.

“We are pleased to be leading the roll-out of this pioneering technology, which is expected to be especially beneficial to pharmaceutical and medical device industries.”

Given the growing consumer demand for wearable medical devices and for greater transparency in product production, PLM should have an immediate and positive effect on the product end-user experience. The PLM industry is predicted to be worth US$50.7 billion by 2017 (CIMdata).

“We are pleased that Seabrook has joined the Siemens Solution Partner Program as a Software & Technology Partner, “said Craig Radomski, VP Americas Channel, Siemens PLM Software.

“Seabrook provides our customers complimentary solutions that add value to their PLM software investment.”

Seabrook was recently appointed the main distributor of Siemens PLM Software for the entire Irish manufacturing sector. For the past ten years, the company has been a Channel Partner for Camstar MES.

Seabrook’s commitment to manufacturing innovation underpins their presence at this year’s GTMA Manufacturing Solutions Conference in association with the Limerick Institute of Technology, which takes place on May 27th.

Seabrook will be exhibiting at the event and hosting multiple demonstrations of their cutting-edge technologies, including Teamcenter PLM, Camstar MES and Polarion ALM throughout the day.

Seabrook visits CIT for schools robotics competition

Seabrook would like to wish the sixth class students from Cork Educate Together National School the very best of luck as they compete in the Vex IQ Crossover Challenge finals in CIT today.

The students, led by their teacher Brian Glanville, are taking part in the Dell-sponsored worldwide competition from Vex Robotics that sees teams tasked with designing and building a robot to play against other teams from around the world. More than 10,000 teams from 32 countries play in over 750 game-based engineering tournaments.

Cork Educate Together is one of 51 local schools competing in Nexus Hall in CIT over two days and we were delighted to get involved, sponsoring the team’s t-shirts and posters, both of which were designed by the kids themselves. Members of the Seabrook team were also attending today to cheer on the sixth class competitors.

It’s an invaluable opportunity for primary school children to put classroom STEM concepts to the test and instill a love of technology and learning that will stand to them in later life, something we here at Seabrook are passionate about.

VEX Competitions bring STEM skills to life by tasking teams of students with designing and building a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge. Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test as students learn lifelong skills in teamworkleadershipcommunications, and more.

Seabrook Technology Group signs significant distribution deal with Siemens PLM Software

By | News | No Comments
Pictured at Siemens’ Birmingham office for the official signing of the distribution contract are (L-R) Seabrook Technology Group’s Managing Director Sean O’Sullivan, Siemens PLM Software Indirect Sales Director Nick Farrall, and Siemens PLM Software Vice President of Global Solution Partner Sales, Jeff Zobrist.

 

Seabrook Technology Group is delighted to announce that they are the newly appointed main distributor of Siemens Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Software for the entire Irish manufacturing sector.

Revenue from the new contract will reach in excess of €1 million and create three new jobs in the next 12 months. Seabrook has been in operation for 27 years, and in the past four years has tripled its workforce and opened offices in California, Indiana and the UK.

In 2015, the company announced its Channel Partnership with Siemens PLM Software UK. This enabled Seabrook to offer Siemens Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) Software, including PLM and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) software products, to new and existing clients in Ireland and the UK.

Siemens PLM Software is the global leading provider of both PLM and Manufacturing Operations Management technology. The international powerhouse in automation and digitisation employs 348,000 people in 190 countries around the world. Seabrook will now be the primary supplier for the full range of Siemens’ PLM products to manufacturers across all sectors in Ireland. This will include pharma, food & beverages, medical devices, machinery, computer and semi-conductor manufacturers, among others. Seabrook will also provide expert consultancy on behalf of Siemens.

Commenting on the deal, Seabrook Managing Director, Sean O’Sullivan said: “We are delighted to embark on this new agreement with Siemens, and to lead the way in supplying Irish manufacturers with these mission-critical PLM technologies. We have witnessed an urgency to adopt this software across the industry, as global manufacturing processes become increasingly digitised. Ireland is already some way behind America and Asia with adopting these technologies and embracing the digital factory. We simply cannot afford to lag behind any longer.”

Mr O’Sullivan added: “We are especially pleased to have agreed this new deal with a company that has such a significant presence in the UK. It is a testament to the strength of collaboration between Irish and UK enterprises in such a time of uncertainty with the fallout from Brexit.”

The advanced technology of PLM is necessary for Irish manufacturers to remain globally competitive in Industry 4.0 – the era of the digital factory. It’s predicted that full digitisation of industrial production will lead to an increase of €250 million in the EU’s GDP in the short to medium term, a statistic Ireland’s manufacturers cannot afford to ignore.*

Siemens Industry Software Managing Director in Ireland and the UK, Robin Hancock, also commented: “Seabrook’s success in Ireland and the UK as our Channel Partner has impressed us greatly and we are now expanding on this relationship with the new distribution contract. We are delighted to have such an experienced, trusted and expert organisation as our primary ambassadors for PLM products in Ireland.”

PLM software enables manufacturers to eliminate paper-based files. It facilitates meaningful cost cutting by creating a virtual twin of a product, allowing for numerous, simulated re-designs before the product is ever made in reality. It also allows products to reach the market as much as 50% faster, enforces compliance with regulations and enhances the quality of the end product.
