Graitec has acquired Spanish-based structural analysis and project management company, Arktec, to reinforce the group’s position in the Spanish market
Founded in 1985, Arktec is headquartered in Madrid with offices in Barcelona, Lisbon and Mexico City, and delivers innovative solutions to thousands of engineers, architects, and building owners.
Arktec’s product portfolio contains:
- High-end structural analysis software (TriCalc) allowing engineers to design any type of structure
- Budget and cost estimating software (Gest)
- An ERP dedicated to construction companies (Constructo).
Arktec also provides consulting, support, and advanced training to all its customers.
Graitec is already operating in Spain through its subsidiary 2aCAD (acquired in January 2019). This new acquisition will reinforce the position of the group on the Spanish market, especially on the SIMULATE segment.
Graitec will combine the strength of TriCalc and its flagship structural analysis product Advance Design to offer engineers the most powerful BIM structural analysis product on the Spanish market.
‘Helping us to consolidate our position in Spain’
Manuel Liedot, CEO of Graitec, said: “I am extremely pleased to welcome Arktec customers and staff to the group. We help our customers to digitalise and industrialise their processes in the construction space.
“We have organised our offering around 4 pillars: CREATE – SIMULATE – FABRICATE – MANAGE. With Arktec, we significantly reinforce our SIMULATE segment in Spain and Portugal and we expand it to Latin America where we already offer our FABRICATE solutions.”
Javier Beltran, manager of Graitec subsidiary in Spain (2aCAD), commented: “Graitec’s acquisition of Arktec, a company of recognised prestige in the structural analysis software sector, represents a fantastic opportunity to offer our clients in Spain, Portugal and Latin America a robust solution in the BIM market. I am very excited about the synergies this brings us.
“Arktec will help us to consolidate our position in Spain, Portugal and to start our journey in South America. I would like to welcome all the Arktec staff to the great Graitec family in the Iberian Peninsula”.
Antonio Fernandez Gonzalez, manager and founding partner of Arktec, added: “It is really great news for the entire Arktec community, customers, and employees to join a group like Graitec, which is one of the top worldwide software publishers in the structural analysis space.
“I am convinced that we will shortly provide a unique experience to all Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin America structural engineers in the AEC industry looking for a fully BIM compliant structural analysis solution and project management tools.”
