Delcam says its recent sales partner meeting, the first since it was acquired by Autodesk, drew a record crowd to learn the future of the two software companies.
“The acquisition of Delcam is an important step in Autodesk’s continued expansion into manufacturing and fabrication and beyond our roots in design,” Autodesk senior vice president Buzz Kross said in a statement. “Together with Delcam, we look forward to accelerating the development of a more comprehensive digital prototyping solution and delivering a better manufacturing experience.”
“Autodesk brings to Delcam increased financial strength that will support our plans to continue the growth of the business, unparalleled expertise in design and a long history of making technology accessible to broad audiences,” Delcam president Clive Martell said. “In the longer term, the acquisition will create new opportunities for sharing and transfer of technology and expertise between the companies that will benefit our business and our customers.”
