Bentley acquires software supplier RAM

By Plant Engineering Staff December 14, 2005

Bentley Systems, Incorporated has acquired RAM International, LLC, a leading provider of structural engineering software for building structures made from all major materials, including steel and concrete.

RAM offerings include products for engineering modeling, analysis, and design. This acquisition follows Bentley’s acquisition last month of the STAAD product line, a global leader also in structural design and analysis.

“We are eager to advance RAM’s entire product line, providing users with increasing capabilities,” said Buddy Cleveland, senior vice president, Bentley Software. “But most exciting is the common vision that Bentley, RAM, and STAAD developers share %%MDASSML%% leveraging the power of analysis throughout the workflows of building, civil, and plant lifecycles. We are convinced that our results will be game-changing.”
