Dassault Systèmes acquires SIMPOE

7 May 2013 Vélizy-Villacoublay - Dassault Systèmes has acquired SIMPOE, an expert in plastic injection molding simulation. The acquisition of SIMPOE, based in Torcy, France, expands Dassault Systèmes' 3DEXPERIENCE platform and its SIMULIA, CATIA, and SolidWorks applications to create the most powerful portfolio of materials-intensive manufacturing simulation solutions on the market. With more than 3,000 active users working for major part designers, producers, and mold makers, companies such as Canon and Panasonic rely on SIMPOE for its leading plastic injection simulation solutions. The amount of the transaction was not disclosed.

"Plastics form a crucial part of today's products. They are increasingly complex, both in shape and production, as well as the speed with which they are brought to market. Simplifying the design and manufacturing of plastics is therefore a critical part of many industries' product creation", stated Bernard Charlès, President and CEO, Dassault Systèmes. "SIMPOE's simulation technology will contribute to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform by helping our clients validate designs and injection molding approaches quickly."

Plastic injection molding, one of the most common processes of plastic forming, is used in the mass production of complex and sophisticated parts. SIMPOE will continue to offer its comprehensive solution, covering the whole plastics injection molding 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.

"As someone who relies on the full range of SIMPOE solutions, including their advanced technology for analyzing injection mold cooling lines and predicting molded part warpage, I am pleased that SIMPOE is now part of Dassault Systèmes", stated Ed Honda, President, hondaDesign, LLC. "And as a long time user of SIMPOE technology, this gives me further validation to know that I made the right choice."

"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 firsthand its passion for its customers, as well as its vision for harmonizing products and how they are experienced in the real world", stated Alain Dubois, CEO, SIMPOE. "SIMPOE's customers will receive significant value through Dassault Systèmes' global support organisation and well-recognized 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.
