On Nov. 5, Canada’s Autodesk Platinum Partner and professional services company, SolidCAD (Toronto, Ontario, Canada), announced its acquisition of Autodesk Reseller, AMS 360 Inc. (Windsor, Ontario, Canada). AMS 360 operates as a full-service CNC and CAD/CAM training provider for the manufacturing sector. Outside of its training expertise, AMS 360 also provides its customers additional services including optimization of the programming process, machine tool data creation and post processor builds.
SolidCAD claims that it has been in the reseller channel for more than 25 years and employs one of the largest team of technology experts. This acquisition, says the company, marks an exciting milestone that will expand SolidCAD’s application specialist team, knowledge and services for Autodesk’s advanced manufacturing solutions including FeatureCAM, PowerMill, PowerShape and PowerInspect.
“AMS360 has excelled at providing Autodesk CAM products to it’s customers in Canada,” states Marcus Tateishi, president of SolidCAD. “We’re excited to have their whole team joining us and welcome their customers to the SolidCAD family. By combining our capabilities, AMS360 and SolidCAD can provide our manufacturing customers with immediate benefits helping them prepare for new and innovate ways they can adopt technology that improve business operations and manufacturing processes.”
AMS 360 founder, Robert Kobielski, shares similar feelings about the acquisition. “The decision to merge will solidify our position as the premier leader in Digital Manufacturing Solutions for the Canadian industry,” he says “With SolidCAD, we can now expand our offerings to include the full, unified portfolio of Autodesk solutions, along with new products developed specifically for our customer’s needs. We intend to leverage the best technology with a dedicated development team to standardize our customer’s daily work and increase their programming capacity and flexibility.”
SolidCAD and AMS 360’s combined team of experts are ready to support and service manufacturers across Canada with what both companies say is leading-edge CAM training, custom programming solutions and consulting services. With a new and improved team, SolidCAD is dedicated to helping firms streamline their entire digital manufacturing process from start to finish.
