Dassault Systemes said it will acquire all of 3DPLM Software, an India-based R&D company it owns jointly with Geometric, an Indian engineering services provider.

The transaction means the French product lifecycle management software group will be able to fully integrate 3DPLM into its operations, which center around its 3D Experience platform.

“The full integration of 3DPLM into Dassault Systèmes (”¦) marks the next phase in the contribution of 3DPLM in our global R&D and strategic 3DEXPERIENCE platform journey,” Dassault Systemes’ head of R&D, Dominique Florack, said in a press statement.
