Fisher Unitech, a reseller of engineering and design software based in Pleasant Ridge, has merged with Computer Aided Technology (CATI), a provider of product development software solutions headquartered in Buffalo Grove, Ill.
Both companies supply software from entities such as Solidworks, Stratasys, Creaform, and Dassault Systèmes. The addition of Fisher Unitech makes CATI the largest Solidworks and Stratasys solutions provider in North America.
“We look forward to working with and supporting Fisher Unitech and their clients,” says Rich Werneth, president of CATI. “Like CATI, Fisher Unitech has built its business around ensuring their customers’ success. That’s what makes this merger a great fit.”
Werneth says clients of both companies will benefit from the combination of resources, including an expanded solution portfolio, additional technical resources, and live local support personnel assisting clients 12 hours per day.
“The CATI team is one of the best in the business,” says Matt Wise, president and CEO of Fisher Unitech. “Their depth of technical resources and ability to support the entire Solidworks and Stratasys portfolio, as well as the Dassault Systèmes 3DExperience Platform, makes them stand out in this industry. This will be a smooth transition with many added benefits for both Fisher Unitech and CATI clients.”
