BIRMINGHAM, UNITED KINGDOM-Delcam has established an office in California, following its acquisition of the assets of reseller Vizion Technologies. All of the Vizion staff will become direct employees to ensure continuity of service to the users of Delcam software in the state.

Vizion was founded in 1998 by Jerry Sanders to sell and support the Delcam products in the western USA. He was joined by Sheila Cullers in May 2000 to develop further the sales in the region. The company has built up a customer base of hundreds of clients, including internationally known names in the aerospace, mold and die, medical, dental, consumer products, athletic shoes and sports equipment industries.

“Vizion’s staff have enjoyed considerable success in building up and supporting a large and diverse customer base for Delcam’s products,” says Delcam Managing Director Clive Martell. “To expand the organization and achieve even more business in the state, we felt that considerable investment was needed.”

California is regularly reported to have an economy equal to many of the world’s leading industrial nations,” says Martell. “It is particularly strong in areas such as the aerospace, healthcare and energy industries, which are all sectors where Delcam is keen to expand its business. I am very pleased that all the Vizion staff have decided to join the Delcam organization and so give us a very firm foundation to support our expansion plans.”
