Strong growth in MEMS fuels demand for company’s robust design platform.
Coventor®, Inc., the leading supplier of software for developing micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), today announced it has expanded its reach in two key geographies with the opening of a new office in Italy, and a new distribution agreement in China. The expansion positions Coventor to leverage the continued growth of the MEMS market and meet the need for more sophisticated design solutions to address the challenges of developing MEMS-enabled products.
Sondra Di Sabatino, who has more 20 years experience in the CAE industry, will head up Coventor’s sales and business developments efforts for Southern Europe and Israel. The office complements the company’s existing operations in Paris. She joins Coventor from Ansoft, where she worked for 13 years and supported key accounts in the semiconductor, automotive and defense industries, as well as major national research organizations. She has also worked at MSC Software, a provider of tools for electro-mechanical design.
In China Coventor has signed an agreement with AONESOFT to develop and support its customer base in the central and southern regions of the country. The company, based in Wuhan, has 21 employees with deep technical and sales expertise and a strong track record with large commercial and academic enterprises in this area. AONESOFT has help expand software and hardware sales in this region for MSC Software, Tektronix, Agilent and Zuken and other leading companies.
“As MEMS devices become more complex and further integrated with traditional electronics systems, we have seen a strong demand for the type of design platform Coventor offers. Both Southern Europe, and including Israel, as well as central/southern China have a wide range of business opportunities for us to develop, with major semiconductor, consumer electronics automotive and defense companies present in those regions,” said Tom Flynn, Vice President of Sales and Business Development at Coventor. “Sondra has a long history working with important customers throughout the European market, and will be a valuable resource as we expand more aggressively into this area. AONESOFT is a valuable partner to help Coventor leverage the opportunities that exist there, and provides us with an excellent team of sales and support personnel to expand our footprint in this fast growing market. Both fit nicely into our global strategy to help address the toughest MEMS design challenges with a robust design platform.”
