MCAD Technologies Merges with Shounco Design Studios

MCAD Technologies, a SolidWorks reseller located in Lakewood, Colorado, purchased from Shounco Design Studios, Inc. the territorial rights for sales and support of SolidWorks in Oregon and Washington. This merger forms the MCAD Northwest division which will occupy the existing Shounco Design Studios’ office in Beaverton, Oregon.

MCAD Technologies was incorporated in 1989 with a mission to sell and support mechanical CAD, analysis and data management software to the Colorado marketplace. In 1997, MCAD became a SolidWorks value-added reseller for the Colorado Territory. With the recent merger, MCAD Technologies has offices in Colorado, Washington, New Mexico and now Oregon with territory rights in 5 states across the country.

MCAD and Shounco Design Studios, Inc. have developed very similar approaches to providing the highest quality technical support, training and sales to their respective regions and this made the merger a logical step for MCAD’s expansion plan. MCAD will be adding staff to the existing Shounco Design Studios, Inc. to better meet the needs of the growing Washington and Oregon engineering community.

"MCAD Technologies has demonstrated strong leadership in the channel since becoming a SolidWorks value-added reseller in 1997. They continue to provide excellent support and training for the entire SolidWorks application portfolio while delivering additional value for their customers. We are certain MCAD Technologies will provide a high level of support to the Northwest Territories and look forward to their success," said Alfred Saad, Vice President, Americas Sales, Dassault Systèmes, SolidWorks.

Shounco Design Studios customers will benefit from an increased portfolio that spans product design, simulation, enterprise data management, technical communications, 3d printing systems, engineering services, support and training. With an addition of MCAD’s certified technical experts, this acquisition will make the combined organizations an even stronger business partner.

“Our first priority in considering this merger was our customers. All of our key employees will remain with MCAD and we firmly believe the new company will be stronger and better able to serve the Oregon and Washington SolidWorks user base,” said Paul Shoun, president of Shounco Design Studios, Inc.

Susan Evans, president of MCAD Technologies added, “The merger with Shounco Design Studios, Inc. customer base and high quality technical staff will position MCAD to offer an even higher level of support to SolidWorks Users in the Northwest region. Over the past 12 years Shounco has built an extremely well run organization, which combined with the resources at MCAD will be a benefit to all involved.”

MCAD specializes in sales, support and training of SolidWorks based products; including 3D Solid Modeling, Design Validation and Product Data Management.
