Our CAD/CAE department was opened in 1986,

starting out with one work station, one basis software (MicroStation) and two employees.

Its performance spoke for itself so that the number of customers and hence, staff and workstations increased steadily.

The move to a 3D modelling platform was made in 1991 with the Plant Design System (PDS) of Intergraph who offered the first UNIX-based systems on the market at that time. In answer to the increasing demand, we have meanwhile extended our software range by the Plant Design Management System (PDMS) of AVEVA.

And today? Drawing on a multitude of work stations, the most diverse systems (see list) and a CAD/CAE team of roughly 40 employees, we provide the design for a large number of small as well as large and, in particular, for complex projects to the full satisfaction of our customers.
