Razorleaf (Stow, Ohio) announced that it has opened its first division outside of the U.S. in Northampton, U.K. The company’s new Razorleaf Europe will provide a single delivery and support service to customers in Europe.
“We’ve already done projects in Europe, and have customers with both U.S. and European presence, but as we get into larger projects with more global companies we wanted to extend our footprint to make it easier to support our customers and partners from closer time zones,” said Eric Doubell, CEO of Razorleaf.
Razorleaf provides PLM implementation services for Aras, Autodesk and Dassault Systèmes software. The new center will have a PLM Software Development Center of Excellence and established offshore consulting and developing resources.
“We are making a major push to educate both SMB and larger customers about the necessity of moving towards a model-based enterprise system (MBE) to remain competitive,” Doubell said.
Michael Welti will be in charge of the new European division. He has more than 18 years of experience working with Dassault Systèmes PLM platforms.
“In my time working in PLM I’ve seen how the technology has developed in scope and complexity,” Welti said. “While at the same time our customers look for more intuitive open platforms with greater accessibility. By developing flexible, configurable toolkits for these platforms we will be able to implement even the most complex PLM system faster with very little additional customization.”
