SolidCAD has provided sales and service of OPEN MIND’s hyperMILL product in eastern Canada for over 10 years.
The meeting included over 40 representatives from OPEN MIND dealers in Europe, Asia, and the Americas, and they interacted with numerous headquarters personnel.
OPEN MIND Technologies USA Inc has offices across the United States and provides both direct and dealer sales and services to its customers and partners in North and South America. Dealers either have geographic purpose or have strong experience with some of OPEN MIND’s integrated platforms.
SolidCAD results have grown steadily since 2004 when OPEN MIND reorganized its American operations and invested additional resources to support SolidCAD and the Canadian market. In return, SolidCAD has expanded its operations and has added focus to manufacturing technology. In 2006, SolidCAD orders to OPEN MIND Technologies USA represented approximately 20% of the OPEN MIND’s American revenue.
