Aspen Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: AZPN), a leading provider of software and services to the process industries, announced it has acquired SolidSim Engineering GmbH, a leading provider of solids process modeling software, based in Hamburg, Germany. SolidSim software is used by a number of leading process manufacturing companies to model those parts of their processes that involve solids.
The addition of SolidSim builds on existing solids process modeling capabilities in aspenONE Engineering software. The combination of SolidSim and aspenONE Engineering software will eventually enable end users to model the entire facility as one single model consisting of both solids and non-solids process sections. This will allow both process engineers and particle technology engineers to work within a single modeling environment, increasing collaboration and driving increased value from enhanced process optimization for customers in the chemicals, specialty chemicals, energy and pharmaceutical industries.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
