TriMech and Solid Solutions Unite

TriMech has acquired Solid Solutions Group, bringing together hundreds of technical specialists from across four countries, and expanding support for design engineers and manufacturers in North America, the UK and Ireland.

Marcel Matte, President and CEO of TriMech, said this move continues TriMech's effort to broaden the technology and business solutions it can deliver to its clients, who work in industries as diverse as automotive to aerospace and mining to medical devices.

"For more than two decades, each company's clients have trusted the advice and support we offer across every stage of the product development process," Matte said. "As we grow, we improve our ability to develop sophisticated, custom solutions that address even more of their challenges. This is one critical way we match up well with Solid Solutions. We both value the partnerships we have with clients who are navigating digital and business transformations."

The combined company, which has people working in nine time zones, is a comprehensive provider of software and services for the SOLIDWORKS and Dassault Systèmes portfolio across their combined geographies. "Both TriMech and Solid Solutions have a long history of delivering exceptional training, consulting and support services, with a focus on expanding their capabilities to help take their clients' businesses to the next level - in design, simulation and analysis, process and workflow, documentation, product data and lifecycle management, as well as offerings for the production floor," said a spokesperson.

Matte said both TriMech and Solid Solutions believe strongly in the value of serving as a one-stop technology solutions partner to clients of all sizes, including multinational corporations operating in North America, the UK and other parts of Europe.

"Our leadership teams have embraced a unique vision that maintains a strong focus on enhancing our core products and services while continually increasing our ability to deliver more for those who need it," Matt said. "Custom, process-specific solutions-both within the engineering department and beyond-are becoming increasingly important."

Solid Solutions is led by CEO Alan Sampson, who will become President of TriMech's UK and European business. The Solid Solutions management team will remain in place, and the combined company will continue to execute a strategy to expand its portfolio of solutions and services, both organically and through acquisitions.

"We continue to evolve and grow in ways that benefit our clients," Sampson explained. "No matter how large, diverse or complex they become, we want to have the offerings and experts to deliver the results they need for the next chapter in their development. That is why joining TriMech is also exciting for our team, who recognize all the opportunities they will have to serve our clients in new ways."

Solid Solutions' UK and European clients will eventually gain access to TriMech's services, including the ability to outsource engineering and advanced manufacturing projects to TriMech, and to use its dedicated and uniquely qualified recruitment team to quickly fill technical positions on their design and engineering teams where SOLIDWORKS and Dassault Systèmes product expertise are critical.

TriMech is a portfolio company of Sentinel Capital Partners, a U.S. private equity firm that invests in promising lower midmarket companies with EBITDA of up to $80 million. Solid Solutions joins TriMech following a two-year successful partnership with LDC, a UK mid-market private equity firm, during which the business grew organically and through acquisitions to increase its revenues by more than 35%.

To support continued growth of the combined company, both TriMech and Solid Solutions are actively recruiting for a range of positions in the U.S., UK and Ireland.
