(STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, 24 AUGUST, 2011) Technia, the leading supplier of solutions for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), has signed a contract with Tokyo based DOME Corporation (DOME), to implement the Technia Value Components (TVC) and the Technia Apparel Optimizer package, based on ENOVIA PLM from Dassault Systémes.

DOME has expanded its sales rapidly through its customer focused approach and innovative distribution strategy, ranking Under Armour as one of the top 10 Japanese sports apparel brands. Under Armour apparel, footwear and accessories are endorsed by numbers of professional Japanese baseball, golf and football players and DOME continues to expand the brand’s reach in the Japanese market.

“This is a strategic project to support the continued growth of DOME to meet the increasing challenges in our business with maximum efficiency. We are confident that Technia, with their world-class Apparel PLM experts and proven solutions is the right choice for us.” says Mr. Tomohiro Watanabe, General Manager of Information System Department at DOME.
