French technology consultancy Capgemini has announced that it will acquire product design and development specialist Design + Industry (D+I.)

In a short statement on Tuesday morning (Sydney time), Capgemini said the acquisition will improve its offerings within Australia, “notably in the development and delivery of products from initial concepts through to production.”

The size of the deal was not disclosed, and is scheduled to complete “in the coming months subject to regulatory approval and other customary conditions”.

William Rozé, CEO of the company’s Capgemini Engineering division, said that D+I “will reinforce our product design capabilities in Australia spanning the medtech, industrial and consumer sectors. 

“This acquisition is another example of Capgemini’s growth ambition and investment in this market.”

Campgemini operates in more than 50 countries and has revenues of €22.5 billion (approximately $36.3 billion.)

Design + Industry was established in 1987 and has won many local and international awards (over 260 local and international awards according to its count.) It has over 80 employees and three office locations in Sydney, Newcastle and Melbourne.

Its Australian clients include Trajan Scientific and Medical, Lavo and Rode Microphones, with international customers including Honeywell, Thales and Schneider Electric. 

“For over 35 years D+I has been the partner of choice to leading organizations who want to create world class, commercially successful products, from research and discovery through to concept design, prototyping and into production,” added David Jones, the company’s CEO. 

“Capgemini’s end to end intelligent industry capabilities will be a natural home for D+I’s expertise.”
