Last month, two PLM MarketPlace partners coming from Belgium, LMS International and SAMTECH, announced they joined forces to serve best the aerospace and automotive industries. By acquiring a significant part of SAMTECH, LMS International wants it to become the center of the worldwide aerospace simulation business in the group. Both companies' simulation solutions are already widely used by this industry (at EADS, ALENIA Aeronautica, ONERA,...) but also by the automotive industry (Renault, PSA,...).
With SAMTECH, LMS International intends to be the leader in test, mechatronic simulation and advanced structures analysis domains. Of course, the goal is to deliver more value than ever to the customers of these two industries in particular. "These solutions enable our customers to take full advantage of the emerging model-based system engineering approach, and to win by superior product innovation. We truly empower our customers by business transformation and next generation processes to develop more attractive, sustainable and smart products." explains Dr. Vandeurzen, LMS International CEO.
Thanks to this integration SAMTECH will benefit from the strong international network of LMS International but also from its presence in other key industries where the use of their solutions would make sense. For Eric Carnoy, CEO of LMS SAMTECH, "The powerful complementary between SAMTECH and LMS will greatly extend the SAMTECH leading company position in structural analysis, including linear and non-linear CAE simulation, structural optimization and coupled multiphysics. The unique combination of SAMTECH's simulation solutions with the LMS hybrid engineering portfolio creates tremendous value for really all manufacturing companies".
We wish LMS International and LMS SAMTECH a lot of success in their business!
