Transoft Solutions Completes Acquisition of Simtra AeroTech



Global aviation brands combine forces to deliver the best technologies for airport designers




January 29, 2014 – Gothenburg, Sweden


Transoft Solutions Inc., a global leader in transportation engineering design solutions, announced today that it has acquired Simtra AeroTech AB, a leading supplier of software for airport and road designers. Both companies are pioneers in the transportation industry with CAD based software solutions such as AutoTURN® and AeroTURN® (Transoft Solutions) and PathPlanner™ (Simtra). Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.


Located in Gothenburg, Sweden, Simtra has an international client list of transportation and aviation consultants, engineers and airport planners. Throughout its rich 20+ year history, their mission has been to develop high quality airport planning and design software solutions. Over the years Simtra has established a reputation as a market leader in its field.


“This is an important acquisition for both companies and we welcome Simtra employees and customers to Transoft,” said Milton Carrasco, President and CEO of Transoft Solutions Inc. “The technologies present in our companies’ products, independently, are truly remarkable and the possible synergies make for an exciting future for us and our clients. This is an important step for Transoft in continuing to build productivity-enhancing software for the transportation industry.”


Both Transoft and Simtra have a long-history of R&D and the union further solidifies the company’s mission to provide solutions that allow its customers to design with the utmost confidence.


“Our goal in merging the two brands under one umbrella is to leverage our resources in order to raise the benchmark for aviation software which, before now, was resource challenged,” said Carrasco. “But even beyond the merging of our world class technologies, we, at Transoft, recognize the importance of maintaining the highest level of support and care for our customers, new and old. As part of that commitment, we fully intend to maintain our attractive and equitable licensing practices moving forward.”


“We are confident that Simtra’s acquisition by Transoft Solutions is positive not only for both companies’ existing customers but also for the engineering community as a whole,” said Ben van Leest, Managing Director of Simtra AeroTech AB. “We share the same vision and by combining our expertise and resources we will be able to provide an excellent platform for refining existing products as well as expanding the portfolio with new solutions.”


The integration of Simtra’s business activities into the Transoft Solutions organization will ensure that its customers experience a seamless transition and a continued high quality of customer care and service, which continues to be one of Transoft’s hallmarks of success.
