Intergraph Expands Services in Asia-Pacific Region

5 May, 2008

Company acquires TechServer to enhance its engineering software solutions.

Intergraph Korea has acquired all the shares of TechServer, a Seoul-based software and services company specializing in automated drafting, data exchange, and system integration in the shipbuilding, process, power, and offshore industries.

Intergraph states that the acquisition will complement its SmartPlant and SmartMarine Enterprise engineering software solutions and expand the company's capability to serve the growing Asia-Pacific customer base. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

TechServer's expertise in software enhancement and integration services, especially for shipbuilding, reportedly is a key enhancement to Intergraph's Asia-Pacific marine services center capabilities. TechServer's software automates orthographic drawing in the design of piping, HVAC, and raceways. The company's e-Draw, e-Clash Review, and e-Weld open solutions will be integrated into the SmartPlant and SmartMarine Enterprise portfolios to deliver increased functionality and improved productivity for Intergraph process and power plant and marine customers.

"The acquisition of TechServer is consistent with our vision of investing in the future growth of Intergraph and, in particular, growth in the ever-important Asia-Pacific region," said R. Halsey Wise, Intergraph president and CEO. "TechServer will provide Intergraph and our fast-growing plant and marine customer base with new capabilities and expanded support in this region."
