Maplesoft and Sigmetrix have started direct operations in Shanghai, China. The two Cybernet Group companies now have an office that is staffed by local experts to provide products and solutions to their customers within China. Henry Jiang, country manager, will oversee operations in China for both Maplesoft and Sigmetrix.
"Maplesoft and Sigmetrix have long-standing partnerships in China and we are excited to enhance our presence in this market," Jiang said. "We look forward to working directly with customers, utilizing our local experience to enhance relationships, and working effectively to meet the needs of our academic and professional customers."
According to the two companies, this development will help increase presence in the region for both, whose products were formerly sold in China through distributors.
The Maplesoft product suite includes Maple, the technical computing and documentation environment, and MapleSim, the multi-domain modeling and simulation tool for physical systems. Sigmetrix offers CETOL 6σ, a fully-integrated 3D tolerance analysis solution, EZtol, a 1D analysis tool, and GD&T Advisor, an interactive tool that provides guidance on the correct application of GD&T (Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing) / GPS (Geometrical Product Specifications).
The office in China is an addition to Maplesoft’s footprint which covers offices in North America, the United Kingdom, Germany and France. In addition, Maplesoft currently operates in more than 90 countries worldwide through a reseller distributor network. The new China office will augment the existing reseller network Sigmetrix has been using throughout Europe and Asia.
