Creaform Acquires Engineering Services Company Genicad
“The acquisition is part of Creaform’s growth strategies to strengthen regional operations, secure its position as a major player in the industry and expand its range of 3-D engineering services to better meet the needs of our clientele,” indicated Chief Executive Officer Martin Lamontagne.
“This is a most significant move for the industry. The synergy between Genicad and Creaform will create the most important 3-D engineering services firm in the Québec City area,” stated Genicad President Michel Cyr. Over the past twenty years, Genicad has become a leading player in Quebec’s mechanical design industry through proven expertise and top-quality services. As a leading 3-D engineering partner with an outstanding drive for innovation and technological development, Creaform will build on the excellent reputation of Genicad to provide the clientele with highly-advantageous, innovative solutions.
Creaform’s acquisition of Genicad is the latest in a series of major events that took place over the year, including the acquisition in January of InSpeck, a world leading 3-D human body digitizing company, the opening of three new offices overseas this summer and the international launch in October of the all-new MetraSCAN 3-D scanner, which adds to Creaform’s line of revolutionary 3-D scanners.
Genicad offices located at 2260 Léon-Harmel in Québec City will soon be closed and Genicad employees will be relocated at Creaform’s offices in Lévis to maintain top-notch services provided to the clientele. Creaform will keep the Sainte-Claire offices open where the employees are to remain.
