AEC, Inc. announced today a joint venture with Absolute Data Group (ADG) to offer technical document creation and the emergence of new software, services and standards to best manage critical technical content in the aerospace, defense and transport industries.
The joint venture, called OneStrand, combines the global resources of the two companies, becoming a full-service company focused on each step involved with the creation and use of technical data. This includes the lifecycle management of technical data from initial creation to archiving, allowing for continued focus on the core competencies of both AEC and ADG.

To leverage the global reach of both operational capabilities and facilities, OneStrand will be headquartered in Portland, Oregon, but will have a combination of operations and software development locations in Brisbane, Australia; Sandy, Oregon; San Jose, Costa Rica and Hamburg, Germany.
