Gaetano and Ciro will continue to manage the day to day operations of the MechWorks business. “We are excited to integrate the MechWorks team into our business – Gaetano and Ciro have built a very successful business over the past 20 years and we are proud to build upon that heritage,” states Tom Makoski.
The companies will work together to further support the MechWorks PDM business, by nurturing the close working relationships with the existing partners/resellers and key customers, providing quality MechWorks PDM software releases, and leveraging the strong technology background of ITI.
Additionally, ITI will extend the existing, close working relationship with the Siemens PLM sales, services, and product management personnel, to help ensure strong AutoCAD & Inventor integration sales and leverage the ITI integration implementation and legacy PDM data migration capabilities to ensure successful integration deployments.
