In that case you need a plugin for this.

Create di.xml [Vendor/Module/etc/frontend/di.xml]

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <type name="Magento\Checkout\Block\Checkout\LayoutProcessor">
        <plugin name="vendor_assign_default_value" type="Vendor\Module\Plugin\Checkout\Model\Checkout\LayoutProcessor" sortOrder="100"/>

Create LayoutProcessor.php [Vendor/Module/Plugin/Checkout/Model/Checkout/LayoutProcessor.php]

namespace Vendor\Module\Plugin\Checkout\Model\Checkout;

class LayoutProcessor
     * @param \Magento\Checkout\Block\Checkout\LayoutProcessor $subject
     * @param array $jsLayout
     * @return array
    public function afterProcess(
        \Magento\Checkout\Block\Checkout\LayoutProcessor $subject,
        array  $jsLayout
    ) {
        ['shippingAddress']['children']['shipping-address-fieldset']['children']['firstname']['value'] = 'FirstName';

        ['shippingAddress']['children']['shipping-address-fieldset']['children']['company']['value'] = 'Demo Company';
        return $jsLayout;

    This used to work, but now it does not. The First Name field has an error message though: This is a required field.
