Cambridge, UK. Granta Design today announced the opening of a new office in Nuremberg to provide its many customers throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland with even greater sales and services support. This is the latest step in Granta’s long-standing work with industry in the region, which includes supporting leading companies such as Continental Automotive, Sulzer, ABB, Rheinmetall Automotive, MTU, RUAG, and BMW Designworks to manage and apply vital information about their materials.
With the opening of the new premises, located within Sirius Business Park, the expanding German team will now be able to offer even better support for its CES Selector, and GRANTA MI software and resources. The German sales organization is led by Senior Account Managers David Campbell and Josef Schebeske.
Recent additions to the German technical team include Judith Schellenberger-Wockatz and Tobias Haushahn. With a background in computational fluid mechanics, Judith began her career as a CAE (computer-aided engineering) engineer, before most recently working for a Tier 1 automotive supplier. Tobias worked as a scientific researcher studying what we can learn from the mechanical behaviour of plants, and most recently in the area of CAE (computer-aided engineering) software, focused on applications such as topology optimization and additive manufacturing.
Granta’s Vice President of Global Sales, Thomas Weninger, also works out of the Nuremberg office. He said: “All of us at Granta are proud of the strong and successful relationships we’ve built up with our German-speaking customers. The opening of this new office reinforces our commitment to offer the best possible support, and to drive forward the application of materials intelligence in the region.”
The office address is:
