Trimble is a global hardware and software provider of integrated positioning solutions for the mobile workforce. Founded in 1978 by ex-Hewlett Packard engineer, Charlie Trimble, the organization’s roots were firmly planted in global positioning systems. With the merger of Spectra Precision in 2000, the roots of the modern day Trimble were sewn. Operating in over 50 countries, with nearly 6K employees and over $2B in annual revenue, Trimble is known for solutions that enable workforce productivity. Trimble is headquartered in Silicon Valley, California.
Trimble Buildings is an organizational alignment within Trimble that is comprised of 5 Divisions focused on servicing the AEC industry with the following client responsibilities: Architecture, Structures, General Contractor, MEP Trades and Building Owner. The Buildings portfolio of synergistic hardware, software and service offerings streamlines communication and collaboration throughout the Design-Build-Operate (DBO) lifecycle.
Tekla provides the global construction industry a chance to achieve greater competitive edge with Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Structural Design software. Established in 1966, Tekla has customers in over 100 countries, offices in over 20 countries, and a global partner network. Tekla Building & Construction is part of Trimble Buildings, a group focused on technology solutions that improve collaboration, efficiency and accuracy across the Design-Build-Operate lifecycle of buildings.
Trimble is committed to providing a total solution for the Design-Build-Operate (DBO) lifecycle. Trimble and Tekla’s combined offering has real value in the detailing to construction workflow. CSC has a long history in the structural engineering design software sector and is considered a leading brand for Analysis & Design (A&D) solutions. The addition of CSC to the Trimble portfolio strengthens Trimble’s position for the DBO lifecycle by providing an enhanced design to detailing workflow for structural engineers.
Being acquired by Trimble will help CSC strengthen its presence in existing markets and accelerate growth in strategically important emerging markets where there is currently limited presence. This offers an exciting opportunity as CSC will benefit from further global reach and additional resources, enabling us to deliver an enhanced level of service to our clients.
CSC and Tekla are combining operations and will merge in different locations on different dates during 2014 and early 2015. You will notice that CSC will rebrand and operate under the name of Tekla, and that our email and website addresses will change.
As a CSC customer, you can expect to receive the same high standard of technical support and training as you always have. Your local team will remain the same for the time being and you can contact them as usual.
