The acquisitions of Adaptive Corporation and Forward Vision expand TriMech's Dassault Systèmes portfolio offering to include CATIA, DELMIA, SIMULIA and ENOVIA.

Both companies have clients in transportation and automotive, aerospace and defense, and industrial equipment.
Marcel Matte, President and CEO of TriMech, said, "We aim to be our clients' trusted technology partners. By bringing together great teams with new product offerings and expertise, TriMech will deliver wider solutions and deeper industry knowledge. Growth by acquisition is part of our long-term strategy to help our clients manage rapid digital transformation."

As part of these acquisitions, TriMech also announced it is acquiring the Dassault Systèmes and EASA Software clients of Front End Analytics. These clients will now be supported by the experienced team at Adaptive and TriMech. After transitioning these clients, Front End Analytics will continue as an independent business focused on its Physics Informed Machine Learning and AI solutions.
Adaptive's President Wayne Tanner said, "The demand for increasingly sophisticated technology has accelerated as engineers and manufacturers introduce or improve products to meet market needs. Our combined client base will have access to more solutions that involve critical areas of their business."
