Founded in 2000 and headquartered in Montreal (Canada), PCO Innovation is an independent industrial group specializing in the branch of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). It was the winner of Canada’s Best Managed Companies Program in 2012.
Ever since its creation, PCO has maintained a proactive growth strategy, leading to the opening of a US office in Seattle. In 2012, PCO Innovation chose Bavaria to settle its first German office.
PCO’s goal was to improve its reactivity towards its clients’ local needs by ensuring a closer presence geographically.
“We had already established business on the German market for several years but we managed this from our Montreal office. That way we were able to build both a strong reputation and a high client confidence level. Therefore we wanted to take advantage of our success and opened our first German agency in Munich”, Éric Desbiens, PCO Innovation Germany GmbH Director, explained.
“Expanding our business and setting foot in Bavaria is an important and challenge-filled step in the growth of our company. Thanks to the excellent support of the State of Bavaria Office in Montreal, there is no doubt that we made the right choice.”
PCO Innovation employs more than 600 consultants and experts in 30 countries, serving a large selection of industry clients, from aerospace to consumer goods, over automobile, electronics and pharmaceuticals.
In 2013, it was bought by and integrated into Accenture.
