Altair Engineering Will Open Office in Madrid to Serve Spain and Portugal
Airfoil Public Relations for Altair Engineering
New Altair location will provide consulting services and software for major aerospace, automotive and energy companies
TROY, Mich. – March 15, 2011 –
Altair Engineering, Inc.
, a leading global provider of simulation technology and engineering services, today announced that this month it will open its first office in Spain. The Madrid location will provide regional enterprise support services to major aerospace, automotive and energy companies and offer software to those business sectors in collaboration with its distributor DSP, located in Tarragona, Spain.
Operating through a newly formed subsidiary, Altair Software and Services, engineers in the Madrid office will work directly with clients to design and carry out computer simulation projects using Altair’s
suite of computer-aided engineering software tools. The staff will be led by Stefano Deiana, managing director of Spain for Altair.
The new office will be staffed with simulation experts to support the region’s advanced manufacturing community. This will include major aerospace companies where Altair engineers will employ HyperWorks and collaborate with client engineering teams to develop lightweight, high-performance aircraft systems. Altair’s optimization and solver technologies, such as OptiStruct and RADIOSS, will be deeply integrated as part of the process to create designs incorporating less or lighter material for components while retaining the strength, durability and performance of conventional designs.
“Altair has worked in the aerospace, automotive and energy industries across Europe for many years,” said Deiana. “Now, the mounting demand for HyperWorks software and for a direct presence to provide enterprise services within those sectors, particularly aerospace, have prompted us to develop a Madrid office that will serve companies in both Spain and Portugal.”
The Spain site extends Altair’s presence in Europe, where it also operates offices in the France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, and the UK. Globally, Altair has offices throughout North America, South America, Europe and Asia/Pacific.
Altair Engineering, Inc. empowers client innovation and decision-making through technology that optimizes the value of business and engineering information.
