This month Vectorworks, Inc., the makers of the namesake marketing leading CAD/BIM and design software have announced they are establishing a new office in the United Kingdom. The move comes to address the rapidly expanding user base in Ireland and the UK region, says the company.
New Office Via Acquisition
The new office comes by way of acquisition. Vectorworks, Inc., has acquired UK-based Design Software Solutions Limited, a long-time reseller of Vectorworks software. The acquired office of DSSL will form a kind of launch pad of sorts, says the company, for further development in the region. The new Vectorworks office will be led by Tamsin Slatter and Adrian Slatter, the former directors of Design Sofware Solutions.
“With more than ten years of experience helping users make the most of their investment in Vectorworks software, Design Software Solutions has provided significant input to the growth of the UK market while also providing valuable support and training materials,” said Vectorworks CEO Dr. Biplab Sarkar. “Tamsin and Adrian Slatter and their dedicated team have the right mix of experience and passion for our products to help us to provide top-quality support for our existing community of designers and resellers in the UK, while expanding our user base even faster than we have to date.”
“We’re thrilled to be part of the Vectorworks team. The UK and Ireland is a major market for designers of all disciplines, and Vectorworks’ decision to invest in creating a direct presence shows how highly the company values these clients and the market opportunity that exists,” said Adrian Slatter, UK sales director. “We passionately believe that Vectorworks provides the best 2D/3D design and BIM tools in the market today, allowing all disciplines to become more efficient without compromising on the elements of design and innovation.”
The new UK office combines with the company’s headquarters in the United States and development offices abroad in Bulgaria and in the United States.
The company has a network of 35 distributors around the world. Vectorworks is available in 11 languages. To learn more about the latest Vectorworks visit them here.
