Altair (Nasdaq: ALTR), the global leader converging simulation, HPC, and AI, announced that Sarov Engineering Center (SEC) has become an Altair channel partner and will handle the sales and support of Altair’s simulation portfolio in Russia. The collaboration will also include making Altair’s academic program more available to students by engaging further with leading local professors and researchers through SEC.
Based in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, SEC is a scientific and engineering enterprise working with digital technologies for engineering analysis. Founded in the late 1980s, SEC has extensive know-how in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and structural analysis technologies – including finite-element analysis (FEA) and fluid structure interaction (FSI) – and provides its domestic and foreign customers in various industries with integrated high-precision engineering solutions.
Prospective customers will benefit from SEC’s full range of services, including the integration, delivery, training, and technical support for computer-aided engineering (CAE) software systems.
“We are pleased to welcome Sarov Engineering Center to our channel partner community in Eastern Europe,” said Kimon Afsaridis, vice president of indirect sales and managing director of Eastern Europe at Altair. “This strategic alliance provides a comprehensive coverage of the Russian market, while contributing to the continued growth of both companies within the fast-growing simulation market. SEC’s expertise and market know-how will boost our business in Russia and gives us a strong competitive advantage.”
SEC applies the latest computer modeling technologies to solve complex engineering problems through its cooperation with various Russian universities – including Moscow State University, Samara State Aerospace University, Nizhny Novgorod State University, Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, and others – to improve scientific research and the quality of training for students for numerical methods to solve heat and mass transfer problems. As a highly accredited institution working in the field of modern computer technologies, SEC will help Altair to reach new potential engineers at the start of their studies and careers.
“Through this partnership, Sarov Engineering Center intends to reinforce itself as an expert in design and product development technologies,” said Yuri Mokhov, Deputy director, Sarov Engineering Center. “In addition to enabling us to expand our range of applications and capabilities, working with Altair is a great opportunity to support the growth of science and education locally. By combining efforts in this direction, we can promote high-tech products across the entire process, from research and development to production and commissioning, while solving today’s engineering challenges at the highest level.”
