Addosoft to represent Bricsys in South Africa

Bricsys, a provider of DWG engineering design software brought to market under the BricsCAD brand, has announced a relationship with the South African company Addosoft, which will become the company’s sales point in the country.

'We believe BricsCAD provides the ideal combination of a standard, yet smart CAD platform, extendable with add-on applications,' said Jean-Pierre Rousseau and Wolter Bijker, founders of Addosoft. 'With Bricsys, Addosoft sets out to bring back the local South African ingenuity of specialised design and drafting modules on an advanced yet cost-effective CAD system, without re-inventing the wheel.'

Over the past several years, Bricsys expanded its business presence across more than 70 countries worldwide through a network of local sales points. Building on its strong presence in engineering powerhouse countries such as Germany and Japan, Bricsys has experienced increasing demand for its flagship BricsCAD software in the major developing countries of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

'We look forward to work with Addosoft to bring the BricsCAD platform to the South African market,' said Erik De Keyser, Bricsys CEO. 'Jean-Pierre and Wolter’s solid background in design and engineering will be strong assets in bringing not only our technology but also our responsive support to the South African design and engineering communities.'
