COMSOL Opens a New Office in Brazil

COMSOL opens a new office in Curitiba to expand the use of COMSOL Multiphysics simulation software in Brazil

BURLINGTON, MA (February 3, 2014) – COMSOL, Inc., today announced the opening of a new office in Curitiba, Paraná, to provide multiphysics simulation and analysis software for the Brazilian market. By establishing direct operations in Brazil, COMSOL can fully serve the region's vibrant high-tech industry and research community. Users of the company’s flagship product – COMSOL Multiphysics – will benefit from local technical support, comprehensive training sessions, and opportunities for on-site seminars and company visits.

Today, many leading firms in the automotive, chemical processing, and equipment manufacturing industries in Brazil have adopted COMSOL Multiphysics as their tool for product development. “Brazil is home to engineers, researchers, and entrepreneurs who are at the forefront of technical innovations and developments around the world,” says Alisson Roman, Managing Director of COMSOL Ltda. “This new COMSOL office will provide multiphysics modeling software and technical support for our customers to successfully apply simulation to their projects.”

Customers of COMSOL are excited to have the company present in Brazil, and leading firms such as Siemens, Petrobras, and others have expressed their enthusiasm at the coming office in Curitiba. "It's going to be very good to have a COMSOL office in Brazil. We'll have local technical support and training from a simulation tool that we're very satisfied with,” says Glauco Cangane, Research Manager at Siemens Development and Innovation in Brazil. “With the right technical and commercial approach, we believe that COMSOL will be as successful in Brazil as it has been worldwide.”

Over the past decade, engineering research centers and industries in Brazil have been growing, demonstrating the need for access to a cutting-edge computer aided engineering (CAE) software in this area. “Brazil is a big market with world-class science and engineering sectors. For these industries, multiphysics simulation software is a mission critical tool for efficient product development and innovation,” says Svante Littmarck, President and CEO of COMSOL, Inc. “The new office in Curitiba is key to better serving our customers in Brazil and to increasing the use of COMSOL Multiphysics in this region.”
