SOLIDWORKS 3D design software and Stratasys 3D printing products raise the company to new heights
Salt Lake City, UT, March 11, 2015: GoEngineer, a leading reseller of SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software, Stratasys 3D printers, Altium EDA, CAMWorks, and Agile PLM, today announced its continued success in helping its customers leverage 3D data across the entire enterprise. “The recognition we have received validates that we are delivering a strong return on investment to our customers,” says Ken Coburn, GoEngineer president and founder. “Achieving worldwide-leader status from these market-leading vendors is a very significant and exciting achievement for our team.”
GoEngineer earned 38 awards at SOLIDWORKS World 2015, nearly double the number of awards it received the previous year. The company earned the number-one spot for total multi-product bookings worldwide. GoEngineer was also named top value-added reseller in several North American categories, including education, SOLIDWORKS Electrical and Composer, EPDM, multi-year subscriptions, and overall performance.
Along with its multi-category success, GoEngineer continued to build on its Simulation expertise. “Part of enabling a great customer experience is providing the right tools to leverage existing 3D data to make better products,” says GoEngineer’s CEO Brad Hansen. “Because SOLIDWORKS Simulation’s latest tools are allowing our customers to virtually simulate product performance, we established a simulation-focused division to make sure our customers are successful with these tools.”
What’s more, GoEngineer was named the number-one reseller of Stratasys 3D printers worldwide in 2014. The company was number one not only in sales revenue but also in delivery of maintenance services. “This was such a team effort for GoEngineer. Our sales team is now the best in the world—literally!” says Mark Wolfley, Stratasys manager at GoEngineer. “And our technical teams are second to none both on the GoEngineer side and the Stratasys side.” Also, in late 2014 GoEngineer acquired Stratasys reseller CIMtech, thereby increasing its reach into Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia, Canada. CIMtech adds considerable experience and thought leadership in 3D printing, especially in the aerospace industry.
Enriching the local community remains a top priority for GoEngineer. GoEngineer Kids Camp enrollment was up 75% overall. Thirty-six Kids Camps were held in 14 different cities throughout the western and west south central United States. “In one afternoon kids go from design concept to prototype, plus they get to take home the 3D-printed project,” says Jessica Skorut, marketing associate at GoEngineer. “The message GoEngineer aims to convey to youth is with today’s technology and marketplace, and your innovation, you have the ability to Shape Your World™.”
GoEngineer also proudly supported and co-sponsored a new reality TV series called TITAN–American Built on MAVTV. The TV series documents the life of Titan Gilroy, a successful manufacturing entrepreneur who has overcome tremendous obstacles—including homelessness, abuse, and prison time. TITAN–American Built is aimed at inspiring and shaping the manufacturing industry by bringing production back to the USA and by giving back to the community along the way. “GoEngineer believes American manufacturers can bring back manufacturing to American shores by using the latest 3D product design and printing technologies to change the game. TITAN helps champion this,” says Ken Coburn, GoEngineer president and founder.
