DARMSTADT, Germany, July 1, 2016 – PROSTEP, Inc., which has its headquarters in Birmingham, Michigan, at the center of the US automobile industry, celebrates its 10th anniversary this month. Within a decade, PROSTEP AG’s US subsidiary has become an important partner to companies overseas when it comes to data exchange and managed file transfer (MFT), product data and process integration, and 3D PDF-based communication. Numerous customers in the automotive, aviation and arms industries, but also in other sectors, use the solution provided by the consulting and software company.
The purchase of the 3D PDF animation software from EOS Solutions in 2014 was a milestone in the young history of the company and resulted in the number of employees at PROSTEP, Inc. doubling overnight. The 3D PDF Pro animation plug-in is a major plus for PROSTEP’s 3D PDF technology compared to normal 3D PDF converters and is greatly appreciated by customers. PROSTEP, Inc. recently succeeded in securing two large contracts, one from a US aircraft manufacturer and one from a top automotive supplier.
“It’s hard to believe that it was just 10 years ago that we started the company with two people in a shared office. We never would have been able to establish ourselves on the US market so quickly without competent employees with know-how and expertise,” says Paul W Downing, president and CEO PROSTEP, Inc., and Dr. Bernd Pätzold, CEO of PROSTEP AG adds, “PROSTEP, Inc. has greatly helped us to expand our business into North and South America and conduct large global projects together. We congratulate Paul Downing and his team on their successful work and hope that PROSTEP, Inc. will in the future continue to open up new opportunities for us to grow.”
