Hueck and CAD-PLAN seal a deal on strategic partnership
The manufacturer of profile systems, Hueck, and the software manufacturer, CAD-PLAN, have concluded an agreement on strategic partnership in the field of CAD for metal construction/facade engineering. Both sides will profit from this step: Hueck is replacing its old CAD solution by ATHENA, which is virtually the “CAD standard for metal construction”, and CAD-PLAN gains a renowned profile system manufacturer.
The cooperation and the conversion to ATHENA will benefit not only the system manufacturer, but also its customers and system application specialists. There are obvious advantages in ATHENA: intelligent 2D planning, integrated 3D functionality, easy-to-use sheet-metal construction modules incl. sheet development and the engineering tools, such as structural statics programs and isothermal computations. These are complemented by an extensive range of services, including fast support and diverse training possibilities.
“We are very pleased to have obtained the company Hueck as a partner. In the end the technical advantages of ATHENA in combination with the enormous market penetration are convincing, ” says Norbert Payer, the CEO of the company CAD-PLAN. Also Holger Achtermann, Manager of System Customer-Service, sees advantages – firstly, in the wider dissemination of the software and the higher compatibility in drawing interchange it brings and secondly, in the 2D/3D interface to LogiKal.
As a first step the AutoCAD application, ATHENA, has been introduced into the Hueck headquarters in Lüdenscheid and into the Hueck branches in Hamburg, Leipzig and Nuremberg. This was followed by training sessions to make the conversion as smooth as possible. In the second step Hueck recommended that its application specialists converted to the software.
