Model-based software specialists Tekla were acquired by United States positioning brand Trimble back in 2011, and come January 1st, 2016, Tekla will be no more.
Trimble purchased Tekla as part of it’s future plans to transform the building lifecycle. According to a press release, “Trimble combines strong domain knowledge with a broad portfolio of technology and capabilities”, and housing those solutions that Tekla provides under one uniform brand will be a reality come 2016.
The combination of brands is also happening to strengthen both business’ open approach to BIM, “providing the opportunity to more tightly connect Tekla software to Trimble’s broad portfolio of Design-Build-Operate (DBO) solutions”.
Risto Räty, General Manager for Trimble’s Structures Division 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 serve the construction industry better as we tightly connect Tekla software to Trimble’s broad portfolio of DBO solutions.”
