One of the Middle East's most well known BIM software suppliers Tekla Corp will now operate under the name of Trimble its parent company.
Trimble announced today (Jan 4) that Tekla Corporation has transitioned to the Trimble brand from January 1, 2016.
"Trimble acquired Tekla in 2011 and the rebranding reflects both the evolution of Trimble as well as its vision for the future," said a company statement issued today.
"Since the acquisition, Trimble and Tekla have shared a common vision—to transform the building lifecycle through advanced, accessible and intuitive technologies and to drive increased collaboration across the industry.
"Trimble combines strong domain knowledge with a broad portfolio of technology and capabilities to develop customer-centric solutions that are transforming the planning, design, construction and maintenance and operation of buildings and civil infrastructure.
"With an open approach to Building Information Modeling (BIM), the name change reflects the combined companies’ strong commitment to customers—providing the opportunity to more tightly connect Tekla software to Trimble’s broad portfolio of design-build-operate (DBO) solutions. With the transition, Trimble’s Tekla software customers can expect the same continued innovation and the best-in-class support and service as they currently receive."
Risto Räty is general manager for Trimble’s Structures Division (pictured above left). He said: “Trimble’s expertise, technologies and investment in research and development enables us to bring solutions to market that transform the construction workflow. The brand name is an important indicator of who we are and what we stand for.
“Together, we can better serve the construction industry as we more tightly connect Tekla software to Trimble’s broad portfolio of DBO solutions.”
The tighter integration of Tekla's BIM software solutions with Trimble's building construction estimating, project management and BIM-to-field solutions will enable a compelling set of productivity solutions for contractors around the world. Clients can benefit from dedicated workflows and productivity solutions that are unmatched in the construction industry, says Trimble.
