service and support for ANSYS engineering simulation software to their
respective customers, the combined company will allow each office to expand on
its own internal areas of expertise and reach a broader customer base. The
combined staff now offers customers a wealth of technical expertise (such as
structural or CFD) as well as industry-specific proficiency (such as
electronics, turbomachinery or aerospace).
"We are very excited to extend our level of services and support to our
combined customer base," said Ken Lally, CEO of SimuTech Group. "For some time
now, all of our offices have been working together on an informal basis. By
collectively operating as a single company, we effectively expand our pool of
resources and technical expertise to allow us to provide the most appropriate
and best level of service for each of our customers -- regardless of
geographic location or industry."
"We are fortunate that our largest distributor in North America is making
this strategic move to sustain and further build on the success of our
Company's products," said Joe Fairbanks, vice president, global sales and
support at ANSYS, Inc. "It demonstrates their commitment to provide
ever-increasing value to the ANSYS community."
