Hexagon AB Set to Acquire MSC Software

Hexagon AB Set to Acquire MSC Software

Our take: The combination positions MSC and HMI to leverage many technology synergies that, if fully developed and exploited, will make the companies world leaders in solutions and platforms for mechatronics product engineering and production, intelligent AM, and the smart connected factory. Development and deepening of touch points with the Intergraph Process, Power & Marine offerings will also be fascinating to watch. To all who followed MSC’s recent turbulent ownership history with concern, the company at last finding safety in the hands of Hexagon, with its impeccable stewardship of many acquisitions across the years, will come as the greatest comfort and relief.
