ESI Celebrates 40 years of Industrial Innovation in Germany Thanks to Virtual Prototyping

ESI Group, leading innovator in Virtual Prototyping for manufacturing industries, organizes on November 6th and 7th its biennial German Forum in Berlin. This year’s edition marks ESI’s 40th anniversary in Germany, its second most important market and home to diverse industries benefiting from Virtual Prototyping. On this occasion, Cristel de Rouvray, CEO, will present the evolution of the Group and its solutions alongside numerous German manufacturers in their innovation journey, since the first virtual crash test simulation performed for Volkswagen in 1985.

The German industrial scene, the automotive industry in particular, is witnessing a deep transformation. With its Virtual Prototyping solutions, ESI supports proactively this ecosystem in its perpetual drive to improve the performance of its production tools, products and services.

The program of these two days spans conferences, workshops, and demonstrations of the unique value of Virtual Prototyping offered to prominent players in the automotive, aeronautics, and heavy industries. During the conference, notorious scientists, industry pioneers and directors will share their expertise and experiences. Customers – from Volkswagen to Airbus, Audi, Kion Group, ThyssenKrupp Steel, Opel, Bosch, and Netherlands Aerospace Center – will present alongside ESI’s teams.

Cristel de Rouvray said: “We are proud to gather our partners in celebrating 40 years of our presence in an emblematic market for industrial actors. This Forum will be an opportunity for us to recall that behind each collaboration, innovation or product there are years of trust, talents, expertise, and a common vision. These factors are key to conceiving innovative and safe products of certified quality. For example, our partner Volkswagen will come back on 35 years of collaboration since the first virtual crash test in 1985. ESI’s vision for “Zero Tests, Zero Prototypes, Zero Downtime”, building on our expertise in the physics of materials, enables us to continue supporting our industrial customers facing rising complexities: to excel today while building tomorrow.”
