CIMPA and Dassault Systèmes have signed a strategic agreement under which CIMPA becomes one of the key partners in the Dassault’s Services Provider Partner programme.
This agreement reinforces the existing synergy between the two companies since CIMPA’s creation in 1995, which has enabled them to support the most ambitious programmes of the EADS group in its PLM initiatives. CIMPA says that thanks to its valuable experience in business processes, in complex industrial projects and in mastering Dassault solutions, it has developed a unique PLM approach and is now established as a recognised PLM services company not only in aeronautics but also in other industrial sectors such as automotive, transportation and energy.
By strengthening this collaboration, Dassault and CIMPA maximise their complementary services to offer to industrial companies, to take full advantage of innovative business solutions based on the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
Nicole Lecca, President of CIMPA, explains, “This partnership will enable us to sharpen our business approach in PLM services, both in aeronautics, space and defence, our historical markets, and in all other industries.”
Pascal Curnier, Director of Alliances at CIMPA, adds, "We are delighted to work more closely with Dassault Systèmes on their 3DEXPERIENCE platform that brings major improvements in the integration of PLM business and industry processes."
Patrick Derouin, Director of Services, Europe and Middle-East, at Dassault, said, "We welcome this partnership agreement which reflects the reinforcement of our relations with CIMPA based on our 3DEXPERIENCE platform. We consider CIMPA a solid partner who will fully exploit its market knowledge to implement and deploy our platforms and related applications so as to meet our customer’s expectations.”

The American Composites Manufacturers Association participated in a roundtable discussion about the IMAGINE Act. Known as the Innovative Materials in American Growth and Infrastructure, Newly Expanded (IMAGINE) Act, the new bill is designed to promote the increased use of innovative materials like fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, as well as new manufacturing methods to accelerate the deployment and extend the life of infrastructure projects.
After the collapse of a drinking water pipeline in downtown Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Insituform was contracted to reline a close to 100 year old pipe underneath one of the canals. Water was restored successfully within five days, with minimal impact on traffic and the environment.
