Companies Jump On Board the Creo CAD-wagon
Written by: Cat McClintock

We talk a lot about innovation. In fact, we breathe CAD. So when companies jump on the Creo CAD wagon, we want to share it. That’s why we’re excited to tell you about four companies, each with a history of engineering and designing great products and services that just selected PTC Creo CAD software for their teams. Here’s a quick look at each.

Savvy meets the vehicle of tomorrow

Bertrandt Group is known for its engineering and designs for international automotive and aviation industries. We love the company’s savvy, sophisticated style. In fact, we had a hard time finding that one photo to share with you that captures just how forward their work is; so we chose a rendering from their design offerings.

We can’t wait to see what they dream up next.

From Bertrandt Group’s website: “Design is the combination of form and function with emotion. It plays a decisive role in the development of automobiles and aircraft.”  

Sounds like…good design

The next best thing to driving is listening to music, while you’re driving. If that’s your passion, you might be familiar with HARMAN. The company (which was acquired by Samsung earlier this year) designs and engineers connected car systems, audio and visual products, enterprise automation solutions, and connected services. Sure, that’s a broad stroke, and, yes, they do more than design headphones. But, since this author owns a pair of Harman Kardon headphones, I can confirm that the sound, quality—and design—are top notch.

100 years of precision

Creo is proud of the breadth and sophistication of the clients we have, and that now includes HEIDENHAIN. The company produces control and measurement equipment that ensures motors and other machinery operate perfectly. For example, they produce a line of linear encoders—sensors that can keep track of a mechanical device’s position. (Think machine tools and direct drives.)

The company has been around more than 100 years, and may show up in any industry in the world that requires dependable precision for their operations.

Keeping cities moving

Finally, let’s not forget transportation. RATP Group designs, operates, and maintains metro, rail, bus, and tramway networks in the Île-de-France region and around the world via numerous subsidiaries. With 60,000 employees, it’s the 5th largest public transport operator in the world. Creo pitches in as they develop sustainable, intelligent cities by designing and operating innovative transport systems on behalf of their passengers world wide. .

RATP Group customers with reliable and safe transportation every day.

We welcome all four companies and look forward to being part of your innovative and successful future.
