TECHNIA’s Acquisition of SIMULIA specialist Scanscot: A Reflection of Changing Product Realization Structures
Why is TECHNIA, one of Dassault Systèmes’ leading PLM channel partners, acquiring another simulation company? PLM&ERP News Editor-in-Chief, Verdi Ogewell, examine the matter in today's article.
As recently as the end of 2018, TECHNIA completed acquisitions of UK-based Strategic Simulation & Analysis (SSA) and Dutch SIMULEON. Both companies are known as specialists on Dassault's CAE portfolio, the SIMULIA suite. Presently, they are part of the "Simulation Centre of Excellence" which TECHNIA is investing heavily in building.
Today brings another acquisition to the table. TECHNIA has just announced the procurement of Dassault-oriented simulation expert, Scanscot Technology, which is a leading Nordic player in advanced simulation.
“They are the region's largest reseller of SIMULIA, but also have a very good reputation as a provider of consulting services in advanced simulation like electro magnetism and antenna design,” says TECHNIA’s CEO, Jonas Gejer.
