SolidCAD and CAD MicroSolutions Inc., resellers of Autodesk CAD software, have merged their Autodesk businesses, forming one of the design software provider’s largest Canadian-based Value Added Resellers (VAR).

The merged Autodesk Gold Partners continue to operate under the SolidCAD brand while providing sales and professional services to the Manufacturing and Architecture, Building Engineering, Civil Engineering and Construction (AEC) industries. The combined team includes close to 50 experts.

“This merger supports SolidCAD’s long-standing commitment to steady growth of its operations and investment in the business of selling Autodesk software,” said Paul Forman, president of SolidCAD. “Fusion of these two Autodesk businesses positions SolidCAD to leverage more than 35 years [of] combined expertise, benefitting our clients with excellence in the products we sell, as well as the training, consulting and software development services we offer.”

Brad Porter, president of CAD MicroSolutions Inc., added, “Moving forward as one team under the SolidCAD banner provides all Autodesk customers the largest and most extensive technical resource pool available in Canada from an Autodesk VAR partner.  


Continuing under the leadership of Paul Forman, SolidCAD maintains its existing offices in Richmond Hill, Brampton and Burlington, Ont., while adding a sales office and training centre at the Etobicoke, Ont. location of CAD MicroSolutions.

According to the companies, SolidCAD and CAD MicroSolutions customers can expect a smooth transition during the merger, and are invited to contact SolidCAD at 1-877-438-2231 for more information.
