3D Systems Announces Deal To Acquire Cadcam Company Cimatron

Avi Reichental, President and CEO of 3DS, says,“We believe that the perfect strategic fit between our businesses, combined with expanded capabilities in product development, channel coverage and marketing, could present sizable synergies that together offer significant long-term customer benefits and shareholder value.”

The ability to provide good quality, trusted software as well as hardware, all in one package, could provide 3D Systems with the required platform to take advantage of not insubstantial economies of scope. As well as strengthening their supply chain dynamics, they should also be able to integrate a large part of Cimatron’s business into various departments within their own.
