“By working together on a common vision, we  have driven important improvements to the PTC product suite, and important improvements in enabling Volvo Group to bring great products to the market,” said Jim Heppelmann, President and CEO, PTC. “We are pleased to be a partner of choice for Volvo Group across its  product development teams. The digital engineering approach that we will achieve together will serve as an example to companies around the globe.”
