On 1 June, solutions provider Eplan founded Eplan Software & Services Sp. z o.o., headquartered in Katowice, Poland, thereby acquiring the Eplan business from the former distributor AB-Micro. With a twenty-member sales and consulting team, not to mention its own training department, the new Polish subsidiary has taken over all of its customers’ solutions business activities. Existing clients will continue to be supported by experts who have become familiar with and supported their engineering processes for years.
The founding of this new branch in Poland, with its own development team, plus the software expertise of the recently acquired Digital Technology Poland (DTP), means that Poland has now become the second largest location for software excellence after Germany within the Friedhelm Loh Group.
Goal: A strong team on equal footing
“I’m very pleased to be welcoming these new colleagues into our team,” says Eplan Managing Director Haluk Menderes. “Over the past nineteen years of excellent cooperation, the team at AB-Micro has always impressed us with their performance and market presence, and we’d like to express our sincere thanks for their great commitment over the past years.”
Artur Marcinkowski, managing director of the new Eplan Software & Services Sp. z o.o., adds: “Working together we built the CAE department from the ground up and supported our engineering customers to the best of our abilities. We want to continue to forge ahead with our company’s years-long dynamic development – with a solid and dedicated team, and with strong communication on equal footing with our customers.”
