Delcam Expands Les Technologies Dealership in Quebec

Delcam announced that it has expanded the range of its products that can be supplied by its representative in Quebec, Les Technologies CFAO. Les Tech, based in Sherbrooke, has been selling Delcam’s FeatureCAM feature-based CAM system in the region for 11 years and will now supply the complete line of Delcam’s design, manufacturing and inspection software.

Owners Michael Grenier and Fredric Nadeau said, “It is very exciting for us to be able to increase the products we can offer to our customers. Since the Delcam/FeatureCAM merger, we started to receive more calls and emails from prospects and customers looking for broader solutions. Being a full Delcam Sales Partner will open new doors and exciting new markets to us.”

Since last year, Les Tech has increased its sales by 30%. Adding more Delcam products, including ArtCAM, for decorative markets such as woodworking, and PowerMILL, for multi-axis programming, will help to increase its business even further. With the full Delcam portfolio, Les Tech is now equipped with a broad selection of CAM systems, including new products such as OrthoModel for the design and manufacture of orthotics and DentCAD/DentMILL for the dental industry.

“Aerospace is a major industry in Quebec. Many of the applications in this industry require complex machining strategies like simultaneous 5-axis. Adding PowerMILL will help us to offer solutions for companies searching for these more advanced strategies,” added Frederic. Les Tech will be adding more staff during 2009 to help increase the quality of support for its expanded range of products.

Mark Cadogan, VP sales at Delcam Canada commented, “The team at Les Tech has an excellent reputation for providing top level support to their existing FeatureCAM customers and I have no doubt that this will continue across all of our products. Delcam has grown its North American business dramatically over the past three years and the increased activity in Quebec will help to continue this growth.”
