SAMTECH, a Belgian company that specializes in Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software, has selected Wichita, Kansas, as the site of its first North American subsidiary location. The expansion comes after an increase in North American business and opportunities in the aircraft and wind turbine sectors.
"The creation of SAMTECH Inc. is a strong, strategic, and symbolic message sent to the American aerospace industry and to all of our American customers about SAMTECH's commitment to initiate a long term partnership," said Eric Carnoy, SAMTECH CEO. "This expansion further enhances our capability to provide reliable, timely support for our customers throughout the world. As a U.S.-based CAE software partner, we are very proud to support our North American customers in maintaining their leading position in their respective fields."
The new site will serve as a Central hub for SAMTECH's U.S. business development, as well as helping to grow its business in Canada and South America.
