Assyst will continue – with Human Solutions at the reins


(KAISERSLAUTERN, ASCHHEIM- DORNACH,GERMANY, 28th MAY 2009) – The Human Solutions GmbH has taken over all software products, software-related services and the software-related hardware supplies of the former assyst/Bullmer GmbH from that company’s insolvency estate. As of today, the new Managing Director is Dr. Andreas Seidl.

“Human Solutions and assyst have had an intensive and trusting working relationship in different business spheres for several years now”, said Dr. Seidl. “It is our objective to successfully continue assyst’s business at the Ascheim-Dornach site. The products in the company’s key segments, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Product Data Management (PDM) and automarker.com play a decisive role here, since they are already being used in the production of several thousand customers all over the world. The associated business units of Development, Sales and Support will therefore be retained and successfully further developed”, Seidl explained. “Thanks to the absorption of all the company’s key personnel, close cooperation on the product and sales/technical levels and a new organization which will utilize the synergies of both companies, we have achieved the best possible scenario for successful cooperation – and our customers will reap the benefits of this. The complete value-added chain in the apparel industry can now be supplied – from the shop to product development and the patternmaking team. This takeover has created one of the largest, Germany-wide specialist suppliers for the apparel sector”, he concluded.
