SIMTEC Software and Services SA

SIMTEC Software & Services SA offers advanced technical software and innovative, high-added-value, Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) services. It serves a wide range of industrial, research and academic clients in South-Eastern Europe. As the sole Ansys Certified Channel Partner in this region, it is a reference point for over 15 years in the areas of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Structures Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Electronics simulation software.

Roadmap to Success

SIMTEC offers technical software solutions since 2001, when it was established in Thessaloniki, Greece. Back then, only few industrial companies utilized simulation tools to aid their design process. Creating and validating the virtual prototype of a product had been perceived as an excessive luxury. Throughout the last 15 years, SIMTEC engineers assisted on converting this perception to today’s view of CAE software as an indispensable tool for design and optimization. SIMTEC now operates in more than 10 countries through 4 locations: Thessaloniki (Greece), Athens (Greece), Ljubljana (Slovenia) and Zagreb (Croatia) [1].
