Following on from the acquisition of MicroCAD Ltd earlier this year and the joining of Graitec UK and Adris it has been decided to formalise these companies into one UK entity named Graitec Ltd.
Combining these three companies will enable us to bring resource and the brands together to provide outstanding customer service to all of our clients across the AEC and MFG**** space under one umbrella with the Autodesk Platinum Status. Graitec intends to leverage this successful experience and build on its customer confidence to accelerate BIM adoption and MFG expertise across the UK from 5 sites, with Southampton as the Head Office, Milton Keynes, Nottingham, Bradford and Durham.
As a leading specialist in Structural Engineering and BIM technology, Graitec has already started developing complementary productivity tools and add-ons for Autodesk Revit™ to bridge the gap between design and detailing. Autodesk Advance Steel™ and Autodesk Advance Concrete™ will continue under our Autodesk ISV contract. Many productivity tools for Autodesk Inventor™ and Autodesk Vault™ are already available.
