Hawk Ridge Systems Acquires Parsons Technology, Expanding Midwest Coverage for Manufacturing Solutions
Hawk Ridge Systems, a leading global provider of 3D design, manufacturing and 3D printing solutions, has announced a merger with Parsons Technology, Inc. The acquisition creates one of the largest and most comprehensive North American 3D design and manufacturing reseller networks for SOLIDWORKS, CAMWorks, Predator, Markforged and HP 3D printers.
Parsons Technology is a leading provider of manufacturing and shop floor solutions in the growing manufacturing states of Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri and Iowa. By adding Parsons Technology to the growing family of acquisitions, Hawk Ridge Systems has created the largest and most experienced team of manufacturing professionals in North America.
Parsons Technology customers will have access to the full 3D design product portfolio offered by Hawk Ridge Systems, including Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS and CATIA, as well as a wide array of productivity software tools, services and training.
“The partnership of Parsons Technology and Hawk Ridge Systems is a perfect combination,” says Dale Ford, President and CEO of Hawk Ridge Systems. “Our CAM teams have been working together for years sharing CAM and Post Processing projects, so it is only a natural progression that we would choose to work with Parsons as we expand our footprint in the Midwest. Best of all, we are now in the position to offer more software choices, tools, training and resources to support our new customers in Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas and Iowa.”
Parsons Technology President, Bill Parsons agrees: “The way we work with our clients is very similar to the Hawk Ridge Systems approach. Customer satisfaction is our primary goal, and we are both committed to keeping it that way. By joining the Hawk Ridge Systems team, we now have worldwide access to the best resources in the CAM arena – we can leverage the range of technical and engineering expertise that Hawk Ridge Systems is known for. The edit-free posts that Hawk Ridge Systems provides are the best in the world.”
The combined company serves 22,500 customers from 22 offices and has 245 employees.
