The new office will function as a hub for Dassault Systemes in the region and will also enable the company to expand usage of its service platform. Dassault Systemes’ regional operations will be run by Marc Kassis, recently appointed managing director for the Middle East.

Dassault Systemes sees more and more customers taking full advantage of its solutions and gain competitiveness in the quickly transforming regional economy, such as the aerospace and defense government groups in the UAE, and kingdom research and technology centers in Saudi Arabia.

“I am extremely proud to witness that a successful French company chooses the UAE to serve the whole Middle East. I am amazed to see the long list of prestigious customers, universities and agencies to which Dassault Systemes delivers value – this is the illustration of the uniqueness of its technology, its vision and its ability to create the future,” said Alain Azouaou, Ambassador of France to the UAE. A key part of Dassault Systèmes’ activity in the region is also partnering with the most prominent education institutions to develop cutting edge education and research activities. These programmes express their values in many strategic sectors of the economy – providing students with the highest education standards, preparing them for exciting technical careers within the ambitious projects developed by the industry.

“Our centralised operations in Dubai will help reinforce Dassault Systèmes’ already strong local connections started in 2009, and enable us to take advantage of the variety of key industries that also have a foothold in the area,” said Philippe Forestier, executive vice president, Global Affairs and Communities, Dassault Systemes. “We are also committed to work closely with local academic institutions in order to create a sustainable pipeline of globally competitive engineers in the region, to help them face new industrial challenges. We’re enthusiastic about the collaboration and energy that will be fostered in one of the world’s key technology areas.”

Headquartered in Vélizy-Villacoublay, France, Dassault Systemes provides business and people with virtual universes to imagine sustainable innovations.

Its world-leading 3DExperience platform and software applications transform the way products are designed, produced, and supported.
