Belgium-based Numeca International, a software and service provider in computational fluid dynamics (CFD), has opened a branch office in Bangalore.

Opening of this branch office in India follows the opening of Numeca branch offices in Japan, the US and China.

This worldwide expansion is part of Numeca’s global strategy to bring its customer service to local markets and provide its software solutions to companies globally.

Development centre

The company is planning to set up a development centre in the near future, according to Numeca officials.

Professor Charles Hirsch, President and founder of Numeca, said: “An office in India will allow us to work more closely with local customers and will significantly reinforce the company’s position in this strategic market.”

Numeca's customers

Some of Numeca’s customers are in aerospace & defence, automotive, hydro-engineering, marine, power & propulsion and wind energy industries.

The customers include GE, Honeywell, Rolls Royce, Pratt & Whitney, Airbus, ABB, Siemens, Ford, Volkswagen, Honda, MAN, and Emirates Team.

Numeca International  has direct offices and support centres in the US, China, Japan and India and partner offices in Russia, Italy, Spain, Poland, Indonesia, Malaysia, South Korea, Turkey, Germany, France and Taiwan.

Product strategy

The company’s product strategy is based on the development of automated, integrated and customised software systems allowing optimal and rapid simulation, design and optimisation and its India development centre is in line with that.

“Until recently, we have been working with Indian customers through our partners. Now, there will be a closer synergy between the customer and us. Numeca brings affordable technologies to help students and researchers to meet the growing needs of universities and research institutions’ engineering demands with OpenLabs. OpenLabs allows students to put their own physical models into CFD solutions without much programming skills. Numeca is strongly working with Indian universities, research institutions to bridge the gap between academia and industries with our attractive and cost-effective Numeca class-room packages,” said Mr Kishore Nellutla, India’s sales & operations head, Numeca.
