Matrikon to use design engineers from India

July 15, 2008 - Matrikon entered into a joint entity agreement with India’s SoftDEL Systems Pvt. Ltd. As a result, a new corporation will be created that will support Matrikon’s product development initiatives and provide project consulting globally.

SoftDEL Systems is an international provider of product engineering solutions with offices in India, Japan and the United States.

Anand Vishnubhotla, formerly the branch manager of Matrikon’s Edmonton office, will now be overseeing Matrikon’s operations in India. With more than 11 years of experience at Matrikon, Vishnubhotla will provide expertise and mentorship as the company builds its India business and trains new consultants.

“This agreement allows us to tap directly into India’s deep labour pool of technically strong, qualified engineers for deployment to Matrikon client sites around the world, especially in areas with tight labour markets such as Australia, the Middle East, northern Alberta and parts of Europe,” said Nizar J. Somji, Matrikon’s president and CEO. “With access to a steady supply of qualified engineers, we’ll be able to better manage the effects of labour shortages in certain markets. It’s a strategic move to optimize our operational efficiencies and growth opportunities.”

Sunil Dalal, the Managing Director of the UniDEL Group, which founded SoftDEL in 2000, was also excited about the possibilities presented by the new arrangement.

“Matrikon is a leader in industrial software solutions, so we’re very pleased to be joining together with them. It’s great for both of us, and I hope we can leverage one another’s expertise to make both companies stronger,” Dalal said.

“SoftDEL prides itself in providing faster, better and more cost-effective solutions to help its customers achieve better value from their product development efforts,” said D. Viswanath, SoftDEL’s CEO.
