Michigan, US-based Altair Engineering, Inc., a global maker of advanced engineering software and grid computing technology, announced that it has established a regional office in the city of São Caetano do Sul, São Paulo, Brazil. 

Altair Engineering do Brasil will provide sales and technical support for the company’s HyperWorks suite of advanced product design and engineering software tools to regional manufacturers and the engineering community.

“Altair has built a strong reputation for providing our customers with the highest quality service in the industry,” said James R. Scapa, president and CEO of Altair Engineering. 


“The São Paulo office will enhance the level of collaboration with our Brazilian customers that is so important to drive innovation in product design and engineering.”


The new facility is the twelfth Altair office worldwide and further demonstrates Altair’s energetic global growth strategy.
