PTC and aPriori Advance Environmental Sustainability Initiatives

PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) today announced it is expanding its relationship with aPriori to support manufacturers’ environmental sustainability goals in the areas of product dematerialization and manufacturing efficiency.

PTC and aPriori will pursue greater interoperability between Windchill and aPriori’s aP Pro, aP Design, and aP Generate software. Together, these solutions enable designers to review designs in CAD and PLM and generate reports for part costs, manufacturability, and environmental footprint. If changes are required, aPriori’s software can generate recommendations for improvements for the designers. This process can increase the likelihood of making changes before excessive costs and footprint are committed.

“Manufacturers today face constant pressure to simultaneously increase profitability and sustainability,” said Stephanie Feraday, President and Chief Executive Officer, aPriori. “aPriori is uniquely positioned to provide automated manufacturing insights to cut costs, reduce carbon emissions, and improve productivity from early product design through production. Expanding our PTC relationship will help PTC customers capitalize on the full breadth of our capabilities, and their PTC investments, to make product decisions quickly and confidently.”

“Environmental sustainability is a top priority for many manufacturing companies, and we believe that PTC and partners like Ansys and aPriori have meaningful roles to play in reducing the overall footprint of the products that we use every day,” said Catherine Kniker, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer, PTC. “This is a real market opportunity for PTC, our partners, and our customers, but more importantly it’s meaningful work that impacts more than business.”
