PLM solution provider Centric Software has opened its first office in Scandinavia as part of its ongoing global expansion. 

Based in Göteborg, Sweden, Centric says the new office brings new product lifecycle management (PLM) opportunities for local clothing, footwear, luxury goods and consumer goods industries. 

Specifically, the company intends to develop a market throughout Scandinavia after its first customer in the country, outdoor wear brand Norrøna, adopted Centric 8 PLM last year to support its growth and innovation plans. The solution supports Norrøna's overall development process such as product specifications, materials management, sourcing, quality and calendar management. 

"Centric will support the local fashion industry with intuitive, easy-to-use, web- and mobile-based PLM software that provides a 'single version of the truth' solution," says Daniel di Benedetto, Centric's regional director for the Nordic and Baltic countries. 

The move comes less than a month after Centric Software opened its first Latin American office in Mexico City, as part of efforts to support the fashion industry in the region.
