TECHNIA launches the Simulation Centre Of Excellence to deliver High-End Simulation knowledge

The Simulation Centre of Excellence (SCOE) has been founded to deliver Advanced Analysis and Simulation expertise to TECHNIA’s current install base, and new businesses alike.

On the 3rd of December 2018, the Addnode Group acquired Strategic Simulation & Analysis (SSA) and SIMULEON.

Now, these exceptional assets to the PLM division have been fully integrated under the TECHNIA brand.

Analysis and Simulation are vital assets to any Research and Development (R&D) department and have the proven capability of providing solutions to a great number of engineering challenges.

The Simulation Centre Of Excellence will provide software and services which reduce the cost of design iterations and improve efficiency of individual workflows. This means that developers will be able to increase the frequency of their problem-solving cycles and achieve a quicker time-to-market.

Led by Dolf Broekaart and Laurence Marks, the Simulation Centre Of Excellence is, “Part of our strategy to provide High-End Simulation knowledge to both Customers and Prospects.” Dolf Broekaart, Sales Direct Simulation, continues, “With our focus on Software, Consultancy and Training, we have created a team of 30 Simulation Specialists who like to be challenged solving your complex Simulation Challenges.”

Laurence Marks adds that, “This merger makes TECHNIA the leading global partner for SIMULIA and Simulation in general.  With over 30 staff working exclusively in High-End FEA and CFD and its automation, the SCOE has the technologies and skill sets to address the simulation challenges which drive businesses of all sizes toward the effective delivery of innovative engineering projects.”

The combination of each SSA and SIMULEON’s Simulation and Analysis expertise provides the perfect foundation for the TECHNIA Simulation Centre Of Excellence to expand the High-End Simulation business in existing territories and to build on the broader business.
