UK company CGTech, developer of VERICUT CNC simulation, verification and optimisation software, has announced the formation of a direct office in Russia. Headquartered in Moscow, the subsidiary is responsible for marketing, sales, technical support and reseller support throughout Russia.
“CGTech is committed to customer success around the world, as demonstrated by our continued investment in local offices for direct sales and support,” says Tony Shrewsbury, CGTech’s Managing Director. “There is a growing demand for simulation of complex machine tools and CGTech is well positioned to provide manufacturers with the skills and technologies they need to be successful.”
The office will initially appoint one sales engineer and one technical support engineer, with additional technical support provided by the UK team.
“This office is a real benefit for our existing Russian customers,” says Shrewsbury. “It strengthens our position as the worldwide leader in NC simulation, verification and optimisation technologies.”
CGTech also recently announced plans to expand and restructure its UK operation with appointment of two new UK-based sales engineers.
CGTech’s VERICUT software is employed in CNC simulation, verification, optimisation, analysis and additive manufacturing. CGTech also offers programming and simulation software for composites automated fibre-placement, tape-laying, and drilling/fastening CNC machines.
