A strong and long-lasting relationship
ANSYS PARTNERS from Europe, Asia and USA operate together under the umbrella of the CADFEM Group. The distances are short, the expertise immense, the philosophy remains the same: “think locally, act globally”. This slogan stands for the idea of providing customers worldwide access to the unique CADFEM simulation-based Digital Engineering expertise, moderated by their local CADFEM partner and thus tailored to regional requirements and specifics.

Solution Partner

A few years ago, medicine, data analysis, mathematical models, artificial intelligence, autonomous mobility, 3D geodata and building energy efficiency in the context of simulation and Digital Engineering were still considered topics of the future. They have since arrived as valuable digital twins in engineering and are in great demand in industry and research. Within the CADFEM Group, specialized companies, SOLUTION PARTNERS, have helped shape this path and are now leading providers of these technologies.

Investments in Startups

Another hallmark of the CADFEM Group are INVESTMENTS IN STARTUPS with highly interesting technologies. Around 30 such promising future companies from a wide range of fields are currently being supported by the CADFEM Group. One that CADFEM believed in very early on is Climeworks AG, which is generating a worldwide sensation with its methods for CO2 removal.
