MERGER EXPANDS SOLIDWORKS AND STRATASYS RESELLER INTO NEW TERRITORIES
Buffalo Grove, IL – April 10, 2017 – Computer Aided Technology (CATI), a leading provider of product development solutions from SOLIDWORKS, Stratasys, Creaform, and Dassault Systèmes, expands their reach by bringing 3DVision Technologies, a SOLIDWORKS and Stratasys reseller based in Cincinnati, OH, into the Computer Aided Technology family of companies.
“We are happy to welcome 3DVision into the Computer Aided Technology family. Both leadership teams share the same vision – making customers’ success the driving factor of this integration. We look forward to working with and supporting 3DVision Technologies and their clients,” said Rich Werneth, President, Computer Aided Technology.
CATI is one of the top five SOLIDWORKS Resellers in North America and has supported the platform since 1995. Clients on both sides will benefit from the combination of resources, including an expanded solution portfolio, additional technical resources, and live local support personnel assisting clients 12 hours per day in four North American time zones.
“Computer Aided Technology has been serving engineering and manufacturing clients for over 20 years. Like 3DVision Technologies, they built their business around ensuring their customers’ success. That’s what makes this integration a great fit.” – Todd Majeski, President, 3DVision Technologies
3DVision Technologies customers will also have access to CATI’s InFlow Technology to serve their PLM/PDM strategies. InFlow Technology is a wholly owned Subsidiary of Computer Aided Technology. InFlow has deployed hundreds of successful PDM and PLM systems since 2001. The InFlow team consists of industry experts fully dedicated to PLM and PDM solutions.
This integration of 3DVision Technologies into CATI brings the total number of employees to approximately 200, with over 90 dedicated technical resources on staff. “The CATI Team is one of the best in the business. No one has been doing this longer than them. Their depth of technical resources and ability to support the entire SOLIDWORKS set of solutions makes them stand out in the channel. Through presentations at SOLIDWORKS World, the CATI Blog, or their own live seminars and events, the CATI team creates a wealth of valuable technical content that puts them in an elite class of SOLIDWORKS partners” said Shawn Devaney, Vice President, Dassault Systèmes Professional Channel Sales for North America.
CATI’s 3D Printing and 3D Scanning expertise will be available to 3DVision Technologies clients as well. Earlier this year, Computer Aided Technology was named as a Stratasys Diamond Partner and a Creaform Strategic Partner for their demonstrated ability to drive growth in the 3D Printing and 3D Scanning industries. Pat Carey, Stratasys Senior Vice President of Sales, adds, “The CATI team exemplifies what it means to be a Stratasys Diamond Partner. Their demonstrated performance, ability to provide a broad portfolio of solutions, and commitment to client success makes them an excellent partner with which to work. Their expertise and knowledge of both the PolyJet and FDM lines of 3D Printers and Production Systems will be a strategic benefit for 3DVision Technologies clients.”
