News: EPLAN at 30


EPLAN, the leader in Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software, recently celebrated its 30th anniversary at the Hannover Messe, announcing expansion plans and the company's continued growth in the UK.

With UK headquarters at Hellaby, EPLAN is a subsidiary of Rittal, within the Friedhelm Loh Group. The software supports the electrical design within important parts of the engineering process, from CNC machines to the programmable controllers of factory assembly lines. What began in 1984 by substituting paper and ink with a PC and software has continued to develop, the EPLAN "platform" supports interdisciplinary work, from fluid engineering and process plant engineering to harness design and 3D enclosure design tools.

The EPLAN UK division was recently recognised for its achievements in 2013 by being awarded with two EPLAN Group awards including "Top Company Performance" and "Highest Company Growth." The continued success is attributed to the focused approach the UK team is placing on selling and marketing the company's advanced software solutions. EPLAN provides customers with much more than a software application, offering a complete engineering package, including training and consultancy to enhance the engineering process for customers.

Globally EPLAN has more than 40,000 customers, over 100,000 installations in more than 50 countries and over 700 employees. EPLAN is set to create more than 100 additional jobs by the end of 2014 and is opening three new subsidiaries in Japan, South Africa and Turkey, proving the success of the company, which began as a three-man venture in 1984.

Maximilian Brandl, president of EPLAN, said: "Our market for CAE solutions is the world. EPLAN is excellently positioned as a global company and I see huge opportunities in growth markets."

Greater expansion is planned for the USA, China, India, Japan and here in the UK and EPLAN is aiming for substantial double-digit growth in 2014.
