Intercad strengthens offering with Solidtec acquisition

Intercad strengthens offering with Solidtec Solutions acquisition
Design solutions providers to merge business operations in Australia and New Zealand

Sydney, Australia (January 6, 2014) – Intercad Pty Ltd, the leading supplier of 3D solid modelling products and services across Australia and New Zealand, has acquired fellow 3D CAD specialist Solidtec Solutions.

As part of the deal, Solidtec personnel will join Intercad to further increase the level of expertise at the company, which over the past three years has transitioned into a full-service mechanical computer-aided engineering solutions provider.

“We will merge the two businesses to support a larger range of services,” said Max Piper, Chief Executive Officer, Intercad Pty Ltd. “Established nearly 25 years ago, Intercad is the longest-standing 3D solid modelling specialist in the region, giving us a depth of industry knowledge that is evidenced in the range of services we offer and the breadth of products we represent.

“Our customers come to us because of our best-in-class technical support, training programs, and industry and business knowledge. This merger of operations will serve to enhance these offerings which can deliver competitive advantages to those customers.”


Solidtec sales personnel will join Intercad as a result of the acquisition. Former Solidtec Chief Executive Officer Shane Preston said the sale will ultimately benefit both organisations – their personnel and the customers.

“Now is the time for the manufacturing industry in Australia to embrace innovation and efficiency as a means to global competitiveness, especially given a stubbornly high Australian dollar as well as increased competition from many low-cost countries,” said Preston. “In this climate, the best way for both companies to help their customers is through the combination of their expertise. The integration of Solidtec with Intercad will provide a focus on customer success and ensure Australian and New Zealand manufacturers, engineers and designers have the best available tools, training and support to increase productivity and better compete on a global scale.”

Solidtec customers will now be able to access the full portfolio of products that have been introduced to Intercad customers in the past 12 months.

“Manufacturing is facing significant headwinds, but it’s a resilient industry and companies are constantly looking to invest in services that increase productivity in a competitive global market,” said Piper. “Intercad is working on developing partnerships with organisations such as IC3D to further strengthen our ability to offer customers a more complete solution that meets their requirements and maximises their investment in SolidWorks, including products for steel fabrication and simple language translation.

“Our commitment to helping our customers navigate through a challenging time has not wavered, and this deal opens the door for increased customer feedback and collaboration.”
