Capgemini acquires Australia product design and development firm D+I

The Asset 25 Jun 2024

Capgemini, a Paris-based multinational IT services and consulting company, has agreed to acquire D+I, a product design and development consultancy in Australia. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquisition will enrich the group’s intelligent industry offerings in the country, notably the development and delivery of products from initial concepts through to production, Capgemini says.

Founded in 1987, with R&D labs in Sydney, Melbourne and Newcastle, D+I has a team of experts in mechanical engineering and electronics product development. The firm offers services across the product life cycle, including high-precision solutions with stringent compliance accreditation and certification requirements.

D+I has also been developing intricate medical, scientific and wellness devices for the last 36 years.

“As part of our intelligent industry work for clients, Capgemini is designing, developing and delivering tomorrow’s connected products and services,” says William Rozé, chief executive officer of Capgemini Engineering and group executive board member.

“To do this we help organizations on the convergence between the physical and the digital worlds by developing and testing products virtually and managing them over the entire product life cycle. 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.”

D+I CEO David Jones adds: “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. Capgemini’s end-to-end intelligent industry capabilities will be a natural home for D+I’s expertise. Its global reach and client base will provide unrivalled opportunities and experiences for our team members. We are excited to join the group.”

The transaction is due to close in the coming months subject to regulatory approval and other customary conditions.
