FRILO Software GmbH has successfully completed its takeover of Munich-based software company DC-Software Doster & Christmann GmbH. DC-Software has been developing specialist software for foundation engineering since 1989.
As FRILO acquired DC-Software, it significantly expanded its product portfolio in the foundation engineering segment. Thus strengthening its position as a leading provider of structural design software.
FRILO CEO Markus Gallenberger said:
“We are extremely pleased to have gained many years of expertise in software development in the specialist field of foundation engineering for our customers with DC-Software. Due to the addition of our foundation engineering solutions, our customers benefit from an enormous portfolio of solutions that FRILO provides for their day-to-day business. A consistently growing and beneficial product portfolio always makes the difference for our customers.”
DC-Software has developed a comprehensive range of digital foundation engineering software. The software company’s product range is currently divided into two types of foundation engineering.
- DC-Soil range handles subsoil exploration, soil, and contaminated site investigations, and the display of geothermal boreholes and geothermal probes.
- DC-Foundation range is for geotechnical calculations, foundation engineering, groundwater drawdown, and infiltration.
This means that FRILO acquired DC-Software on 1 April 2022 and it added a sophisticated product range comprising more than 30 software programs to its portfolio.
Dr. Armin Doster, Ing, co-founder of DC-Software said:
“We attach great importance to ensuring continuity for customers and employees with the takeover. I am convinced that FRILO and the Nemetschek Group provide the appropriate conditions for this. We expect this step to enable us to profitably utilize the strong synergies between the two companies and to benefit from new impulses.”
Founded in 1989, DC-Software has developed into a sustainable and profitable company. It has become well established within the DACH market. That is the German-speaking parts of Europe, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. With the takeover of DC-Software, FRILO has extended its software portfolio into the foundation engineering segment.
Frilo is part of the Nemetschek Group, a vendor of specialist software for architects, engineers, and the construction industry.
