Bentley Acquires KIWI Software to Deliver Complete Structural Workflow Solution

Houston, United States

Bentley Systems, Incorporated has announced that it has acquired all operations of KIWI Software, a leading provider of structural modeling, detailing, and fabrication software for industrial plants, buildings, and civil structures.

KIWI Software's flagship product line, ProSteel 3D, is a globally recognized solution for structural steel detailing and fabrication that supports multiple platforms, including AutoCAD, Inventor, and now MicroStation. The total number of ProSteel 3D users exceeds 6000. Typical applications include structural steel and steel building construction, plant construction, conveying equipment and heavy machinery, aluminum construction, and naval architecture.

Said Bhupinder Singh, senior vice president, Bentley Software, "When it comes to structural engineering, Bentley has been the clear choice for design, analysis, and construction. With this acquisition, Bentley is also the clear choice for steel detailing and fabrication. This is great news for users as we can now provide them with a complete and fully integrated structural workflow solution."

Continued Singh, "I want to welcome all KIWI Software users to the Bentley user community, and am happy to report that they include a brand new category of user organization for Bentley - structural and facade steel fabricators. KIWI Software has always worked closely with its users to bring them the ease of use, flexibility, and features they require to meet the changing demands of modern structural steel work. Bentley will follow this same strategy as we continue to advance the capabilities of this newest addition to our comprehensive structural solution set."

The KIWI Software acquisition follows Bentley's acquisition in 2005 of RAM International, a leading provider of structural engineering software for building structures made from all major materials, and of the STAAD product line, a global leader in structural design and analysis. It represents yet another achievement towards Bentley's goal of leveraging the power of analysis throughout the design workflows in building, civil, and plant lifecycles.

All KIWI Software executives and staff have joined the Bentley organization, and sales and support will continue to be offered through the KIWI Software channel. For more information, visit
