The Cohesive Companies, a wholly-owned but independently operated digital integrator business unit of Bentley Systems, Incorporated, announced its acquisition of OXplus, the rail asset management specialist headquartered in Veghel, Netherlands. OXplus expands the global transportation infrastructure support of The Cohesive Companies and becomes the sixth brand to enter its fold in support of its mission to deliver social, economic, and environmental outcomes for infrastructure clients and their constituents.
OXplus supports rail owners, operators, and maintainers, and rolling stock manufacturers around the globe with digital tools and solutions that give them a deep insight into the performance of their assets. It builds smart systems, and delivers client experiences, that use IoT data to effectively predict when repair or intervention is needed, that prevent downtime, that reduce operational costs, and that enable efficient scheduling of assets. The acquisition of OXplus will accelerate The Cohesive Companies’ expansion of its Enterprise Asset Management presence within Europe and elsewhere.
The acquisition coincides with the appointment of Dr. Mark Bew MBE as CEO of The Cohesive Companies, succeeding Noah Eckhouse. In a further appointment, Boston-based George Church has been named COO of The Cohesive Companies.
