On Monday Sept 29 I joined the inauguration of our new office in Thane, India. A brand new, custom built office space designed specifically to fit Technia’s needs – open office spaces, meeting rooms, conference facilities, training rooms, a lounge, an in-house pantry and lots of greenery with picturesque Yeor hills in the backdrop.

Moving Forward

I´m proud of the India team we have built over a period of two years through very selective recruitments of top performers in PLM and software development. We have built a team that complement our #1 Knowledge in PLM in Europe and USA. We promote a flat hierarchy, entrepreneurship, a strong drive for constant improvement and a dedication to create a superior PLM experience for our PLM customers.

The contribution from the new office will have a progressive path – and in a new office, new success stories are bound to happen for customers, employees and Technia.


All the best,
Jonas
