NovoPLM acquires PTC Reseller, Tech-30, to broaden service area and software portfolio

Frisco, TX – June 1, 2020 – NovoPLM Inc, a platinum reseller of PTC CAD, PLM, AR, and IoT software, services, and training, has acquired the assets of California-based PTC reseller Tech-30. The acquisition is effective on June 1, 2020. NovoPLM will take over all of Tech-30’s PTC software license and subscription sales, support services, and training classes.

“We are looking forward to getting to know our new customers from Tech-30 and building new relationships here at NovoPLM,” said Jason Green, NovoPLM Vice President. “Whether a company needs new software solutions, PLM implementation, engineering consulting, AR services, or training, our team is ready to help.”

NovoPLM is a member of Sconce Group, which is an alliance of companies that combined provide PLM, IoT, and Industry 4.0 software and services to the engineering and manufacturing industries. With this acquisition of Tech-30, Sconce Group is reinforcing its dedication to growing its relationship with PTC and building upon its long history as a PTC services provider. In a related transaction furthering its focus on PTC as its primary platform, the Sconce Group has sold the assets of ApexDMS, Inc., its Siemens reseller business, to Automotion LLC, an affiliate of Saratech.

Founded in 2001, Sconce is a leading global digital transformation solution provider and is a trusted long-time business partner of PTC with a global footprint across seven countries. Sconce has developed IPs for OEMs, and its flagship product SBS (shape based search) is PLM and MCAD agnostic and is patented. They provide turnkey consulting and project implementation services for manufacturing companies using leading PLM/MCAD software in the market. Sconce has served many Fortune 500/1000 companies such as Stryker, Ortho-Clinical diagnostics, Komatsu, TRW, Ferrari (F1) , Toyota, Aisin Group, ITT, Federal Mogul, GE, et al.

Sconce launched NovoPLM in 2015, and the company quickly grew to become one of North America’s leading PTC software resellers and training partners. Its acquisition of Tech-30 expands its geographic reach – particularly on the west coast – and combines the two companies’ respective backgrounds, which the company feels will greatly benefit its clients and the CAD/CAM/PLM marketplace.

Management at NovoPLM feel each company brings their own strengths to the table and will complement each other well. “NovoPLM has a vast background in the PTC Creo® and Windchill® solutions. We now have specialized divisions that focus solely on PTC’s Vuforia® augmented reality software and services and SaaS products such as PTC’s Onshape® software. The Tech-30 team are proven leaders in PTC’s Mathcad® solution and have built a dedicated community for their Mathcad customers,” said Brian Bezdek, Managing Partner of NovoPLM and Sconce Group. “Having this expertise under one roof provides our customer base with more robust and agile solutions as they grow their own businesses.”

“NovoPLM and Sconce have proven to be valuable Channel Partners to PTC.  We believe this acquisition and expansion will provide immense value to our customers and to the marketplace,” said Corey Pratte, Vice President of America Channel Sales, PTC.
