Delcam forms Joint Venture in Denmark
Delcam has established a new Joint Venture company in Denmark, Delcam Danmark, in partnership with local CADCAM specialist Søren Friis, who will be the Director of the new company. Delcam has been active for many years in Denmark through resellers and has a number of large international companies as customers, including LEGO, ECCO, Siemens Wind Power, Vestas and Danfoss, as well as many smaller subcontract manufacturers and toolmakers.
Delcam Denmark will support Delcam’s complete range of software products. However, at the start, the main focus will be on the range of CAM software, in particular PowerMILL for high-speed and five-axis machining, the FeatureCAM feature-based system, and the Delcam for SolidWorks integrated machining software. In addition, Delcam Denmark will also offer consultancy services to help companies to optimise their machining processes.
The formation of the new company is a commitment by Delcam to invest further in the market, to support existing customers more effectively and to increase its sales in the country. The new company will be based in the Arena Syd premises in Vamdrup near Kolding. Being based on this site will give Delcam Danmark the facilities to provide training and seminar events.
Søren Friis has many years of experience in CADCAM sales and support, having previously worked for CADCAM suppliers in the Aarhus area. With his background in support, he is well aware of the importance of experienced, local assistance for customers in Denmark.
"Danish industry needs to be close to its suppliers and support is the area where I believe Delcam Danmark will be able to show a real difference,” claimed Mr. Friis.
The ability of the new company to provide the highest quality of support was repeated by Delcam’s Commercial Director, Bart Simpson, who added "Our investment in Denmark is ideally timed given the recent reduction in support resources in the country by a number of our competitors.”
