Mission and vision

We increase business efficiency in plant, marine and offshore industries by optimizing design, engineering, production, construction and data management processes throughout the entire life cycles of investment projects.
We want to be globally recognized as the developer and provider of the most intelligent, efficient and innovative software solutions. Our solutions reduce operating costs, shorten lead times, improve quality and increase profits in globally distributed working environments. We do it by combining software engineering with practical design know-how.


The development of 3D design software was originally started in the mid 80's for in-house use by Cadmatic's mother company, Elomatic Ltd, to take advantage of 3D technology in improving the design, visualization, distribution and total cost efficiency of projects. 

The development project for a 3D plant design program was started in 1983 and by 1985 the first pilot project using the new 3D technology was completed. Improvements in design and overall efficiency were remarkable and as such it was decided to found Cadmatic Ltd in the early 1990s with the responsibility of marketing and further developing Cadmatic 3D software.

It was at this time that Cadmatic also started its co-operation with Dutch partners Numeriek Centrum Groningen B.V. to develop comprehensive 3D design solutions for ship design under the Nupas-Cadmatic brand name while continuing with plant design software development under the original Cadmatic name. 

In September 2015 Cadmatic acquired all the shares and business operations of Numeriek Centrum Groningen, after which the companies’ operations were combined. At the same time all branding was united under the Cadmatic brand and product name. 

Cadmatic's growth has been impressive since the early days with more than 7000 licenses sold in 55 countries up to date.

Every solution we create aims at achieving at least one of our customers’ key goals:

  • Shortening project lead times 
  • Minimizing design errors in all project phases
  • Increasing efficiency of change management
  • Enhancing information accessibility

We work closely with our customers to keep our software solutions up to date with the demands of modern design, engineering, manufacturing and production companies.
