Hexagon's journey

About 25 years ago, a Swedish multinational company made a deliberate choice to transform the company’s future and fortunes. In ever-bigger incremental steps, Hexagon evolved — becoming the global leader in digital reality and autonomous solutions that it is today, focused on driving the world towards a sustainable future.

Innovation and investment

Hexagon is unlike any other technology company on the planet. What sets us apart is our portfolio of digital reality solutions, made possible by our unique expertise in combining our sensor, software and autonomous technologies that together liberate the power of data to change the world for the better.

We aggressively invest in R&D to maintain leadership in innovation and drive organic growth, and we diligently pursue strategic, groundbreaking technologies through acquisitions that complement and accelerate progress. This approach has positioned Hexagon both as the frontrunner in digital reality solutions and as a force that transforms organisations by empowering their leaders and employees to adapt to rapid changes wrought by evolving digital technologies. And most importantly, it has enabled us to deliver on the freedom that autonomous digital reality solutions empowers.


Freedom of autonomy

By introducing autonomy to data, processes and workflows, we are freed from what was once holding us back. Data is no longer an obstacle and can be put to in work ways never before possible.

With autonomy customers are free to see the future as clearly as the past. Free to collaborate securely across geographies, networks, silos and legacy systems. Free to visualise what was previously invisible. Free from constraints of complexity, time and distance. Free to know what wasn’t known before.

With autonomy Hexagon is free to innovate our approach to innovation and accelerate our rate of acceleration. With autonomy we can set industries free to overcome obstacles and ramp up efforts to meet the great and pressing challenges facing humanity. Free to scale sustainability globally — while increasing productivity, growth and profitability.


Freedom to do well

The Hexagon story is about our customers doing well. And how doing well will lead to doing good things for the planet. Efficiency, productivity, quality, safety … these are the antidotes to a planet under siege.

With our solutions, our customers are empowered to turn data into a sustainable, competitive advantage. To make factories more productive, cities safer, industrial facilities more efficient and construction projects more profitable. Hexagon will drive sustainability, growth and shareholder value for years to come by empowering our customers with the freedom to do good by doing well.
