Key achievements in Process & Industry, Marine, and Construction segments

A notable achievement in the Process & Industry segment during the fiscal period was, among others, acquiring Sumitomo SHI FW as a customer. The global provider of power, energy storage and environmental technologies and services implemented CADMATIC 3D plant design and information management solutions in their engineering projects in Finland, Poland, India, and China.

In the Marine segment, a key highlight in 2021 was Seaspan Shipyards’ implementation of all CADMATIC’s ship design and information management software. The Canadian shipyard is a strategic shipbuilding partner for large non-combat vessels for the Canadian Coast Guard and Royal Canadian Navy.

The Construction segment’s 11% growth was driven, among others, by the acquisition of a record 185 new customers.

New offices in Canada and Hungary

During the fiscal year, CADMATIC established a subsidiary in Vancouver Canada to support Seaspan Shipyards and to drive business development in the North American region. At the beginning of the current financial period a subsidiary was also established in Budapest, Hungary to support the growing customer base in Eastern Europe.

Focus on R&D investments and social responsibility

Almost 23% of CADMATIC’s turnover was invested in software development in 2021. In September 2021, CADMATIC was ranked as the 7th highest investor in R&D in Finland as a percentage of turnover by Tekniikka & Talous magazine.

A major focus of CADMATIC’s social responsibility lies in the development of educational opportunities. In 2021, CADMATIC continued offering students the possibility to participate in free online training and cooperated with educational institutions and customers to boost the design and project skills of students. A mechanical engineering professorship donated earlier by CADMATIC to the University of Turku was filled early this year.
