The acquisition includes all the IPRs to Kymdata’s CAD software and business agreements, expanding Cadmatic’s portfolio.

Cadmatic said that Kymdata’s CADS would be an “excellent complement” portfolio of structural and mechanical design and information management for ships and process plants in the global market.

"Kymdata is a well-run, profitable and growing company. I am very pleased that we have acquired the company and its products,” said Jukka Rantala, ceo of Cadmatic.
