Dassault Systèmes Acquires SIMPACK
VÉLIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France --(Business Wire)--
Systèmes (Paris:DSY) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the
3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital
Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today
announced the acquisition of SIMPACK,
the technology leader in multi-body simulation technologies and
solutions. With the acquisition of SIMPACK, based near Munich, Germany, Dassault
Systèmes is expanding its SIMULIA realistic multiphysics simulation
technology portfolio to include multi-body mechatronic systems, from
virtual concept validation to the real-time experience. SIMPACK has more
than 130 customers in the energy, automotive, and rail industries,
including Alstom, Bombardier, BMW, Daimler, Honda (News - Alert), Jaguar Land Rover,
MAN, and Vestas. The amount of the transaction was not disclosed.
"Today's acquisition of SIMPACK, part of a larger, ongoing strategy to
continually expand the 3DEXPERINCE platform, enables a complete virtual
and real product experience, like never before," said Bernard Charlès,
President and CEO, Dassault Systèmes (News - Alert). "Consumers expect automobiles,
aircraft, and nearly all products to continually get smarter, safer,
faster, quieter, and more efficient. This means companies need to do
more than engineer everything coming together - such as controls,
movement, bending, and noise. They need to experience their product as
they create it."
SIMPACK has demonstrated strong technology leadership, in particular
through complex models, non-linear effects such as friction and flexible
structures, efficient numerical algorithms, and real-time capabilities.
SIMPACK is also synonymous with high quality, through its robust
solutions in a wide range of applications and the deep simulation
knowledge of their employees.
"SIMPACK is gaining market share today and it will be strengthened by
its technological, commercial and operational synergies with Dassault
Systèmes. SIMPACK has always provided product designers and consumers
with a physical experience of a new product long before it comes into
production. We have similar technology-driven cultures and a shared
long-term commitment to scientific excellence," said Alex Eichberger,
Founder and CEO, SIMPACK. "We will join forces and technologies to
provide superior virtual and physical experiences, expanding industry
solution experiences for transportation & mobility, aerospace & defense,
and other industries."
With SIMPACK technologies enhancing the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Dassault
Systèmes will provide the leading integrated solution for end-to-end
development of advanced systems, combining realistic multi-physics
simulation, accurate real-time simulation of mechatronic assemblies, and
control of smart systems.
Dassault Systèmes entered into a definitive acquisition agreement with
SIMPACK whereby Dassault Systèmes acquired the company in an all-cash
transaction. This transaction was completed on July 10, 2014.
