Hexagon announces acquisition of MSC Software

February 6, 2017 - Hexagon AB, a global provider of information technologies across geospatial and industrial enterprise applications, announced an agreement to acquire MSC Software (“MSC”), a provider of computer-aided engineering (CAE) solutions, including simulation software for virtual product and manufacturing process development.

MSC’s simulation analysis capabilities empower customers to optimise design for production, ensuring downstream productivity, product quality, and durability. The acquisition strengthens Hexagon’s ability to connect the traditionally separate stages of design and production – integrating real-world data generated on the production floor with simulation data to further improve a customer’s ability to reveal and correct design limitations and production problems prior to manufacturing.

Headquartered in Newport Beach, CA, United States, MSC has over 1,200 highly-skilled professionals in 20 countries. Its reputation in industries such as automotive, aerospace and electronics spans more than 50 years.
