GRAITEC ACQUIRES STRUCSOFT SOLUTIONS (CANADA): a software developer dedicated to the prefabricated manufacturing and offsite construction sector within the AEC industry.
12th April 2021 –GRAITEC, an international BIM, Fabrication, and Design software developer for AEC, and Autodesk® Platinum Partner across Europe and Gold across Canada, USA and Russia, is delighted to announce the acquisition of StrucSoft Solutions.
Originally founded in 1994 by George Ajami, StrucSoft Solutions is a Canadian-based software developer, dedicated to the prefab manufacturing and offsite construction sectors within the AEC industry. Headquartered in Montreal (Quebec), StrucSoft opened an office in Liverpool (United Kingdom) in 2017 to provide support to North American and European clients. The company develops a suite of light gauge steel and wood framing software to model, coordinate, engineer, and manufacture directly within the Autodesk Revit® environment.
GRAITEC, now operating in 10 plus countries, is already established in StrucSoft’s main markets (i.e., USA, Canada and UK) creating immediate commercial synergies.
From a technological point of view, Graitec and StrucSoft share the same strong DNA. StrucSoft Solutions’ MWF (or Metal Wood Framer) software completes the functional coverage of Graitec’s FABRICATE offering by adding light gauge steel and wood to existing rebar, prefabricated concrete and structural steel. The acquisition of StrucSoft Solutions significantly reinforces Graitec’s CREATE – SIMULATE – FABRICATE – MANAGE strategy and its willingness to provide end to end solutions for the construction industry.
Manuel Liedot, GRAITEC CEO comments: “I am delighted to welcome StrucSoft, its customers and its talented team to the Graitec Group. StrucSoft’s native integration with Revit is very complementarity with the Graitec and Autodesk’s BIM ecosystem. StrucSoft significantly strengthens our ambition of breaking silos between engineering firms, detailers, manufacturers, and construction sites. The acquisition of StrucSoft also demonstrates our continued commitment to the North American market.”
George Ajami, President of StrucSoft Solutions Ltd concludes: “We are extremely enthusiastic about joining the Graitec team. Their customer first mentality and their dedication to the development of technology within the prefabrication and manufacturing segments closely aligns with StrucSoft’s mission. This next step in the evolution of our company and products will enable our combined teams to better service our customers and push the boundaries of what our software can achieve in the manufacturing and AEC sectors.”
Established in 1994, StrucSoft Solutions develops software and provides services to the manufacturing and AEC industries. Headquartered in Montreal, Canada with an office in Liverpool, England, StrucSoft leverages BIM technology to digitize and automate the creation and flow of manufacturing data from the design model to the shop floor. StrucSoft Solutions’ flagship product, MWF is built upon the Autodesk Revit® platform, automating the creation of both light gauge steel and wood panels, completing the link from design to manufacturing.
