Montreal-based Famic Technologies Inc., creator of the Automation Studio design and simulation software for hydraulics, pneumatics, electrical and automation systems, has opened a new office in Munich, Germany, to provide better support and sales in Europe, primarily in German-speaking countries.
Charbel Nasr, president of Famic Technologies, says this expansion is the result of continued worldwide success. “We have an important customer base in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Until now, we have been providing support remotely from Montreal. Opening an office in Germany demonstrates our commitment to our customers and partners and allows us to offer better service at a local level, during local work hours. Munich is the ideal location for us because of its strategic proximity to our client base. We’ve been eager to establish a fixed presence in an area in Europe where there is a strong concentration of OEMs in mobile hydraulic machinery.”
This new office is the first expansion for Famic Technologies, which has been developing innovative design, maintenance and training software solutions for hydraulics, pneumatics, electrical and automation for more than 25 years. With a sales and support team in Munich, Famic will also be better positioned to serve its distribution partners. Charbel Nasr adds, “It’s the first part of Famic Technologies’ plan to expand and improve service to the international market.” The company maintains all R&D activities at its head office in Montreal.
