Dassault Systèmes acquires SIMPOE

3D design software firm Dassault Systèmes has acquired injection moulding simulation provider SIMPOE. The acquisition of SIMPOE, based in Torcy, France, expands Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and its SIMULIA, CATIA, and SolidWorks applications to create a portfolio of materials-intensive manufacturing simulation solutions on the market. With more than 3,000 active users working for major part designers, producers, and mould makers, companies such as Canon and Panasonic rely on SIMPOE for its injection simulation solutions. Transaction details were not disclosed.

SIMPOE says it will continue to offer its comprehensive solution, covering the whole injection moulding process. These scalable packages cover a wide range of functionalities, from simple to advanced, and will complement existing SIMULIA, CATIA and SolidWorks solutions in the plastic part domain. The underlying technology will enhance future 3DEXPERIENCE Industry Solution Experiences, leveraging Dassault Systèmes’ existing design-to-manufacturing expertise in composites and sheet metal, to offer an integrated experience covering the entire plastic-part process.

“This is an exciting development for SIMPOE and its customers and partners. We have worked closely with Dassault Systèmes over the past five years and we have seen first-hand its passion for its customers, as well as its vision for harmonising products and how they are experienced in the real world,” said Alain Dubois, CEO, SIMPOE. “SIMPOE’s customers will receive significant value through Dassault Systèmes’ global support organisation and well-recognised commitment to research and development. This is an opportunity to extend the reach of our technology to a wider audience, continue efforts to further enhance high-end functionalities for plastic experts, and play a key role in Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE strategy.”

The transaction was completed on April 18, 2013.
