ROCHESTER, NY – EMA Design Automation today announced it is expanding its global reach through a merger with FlowCAD, a fellow Cadence channel partner in Central Europe.

The deal marks EMA's fourth such expansion in 18 months, bringing the ECAD company closer to its vision of providing leading technology, service and support to the worldwide EDA market. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We are very excited to join forces with FlowCAD,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO, EMA Design Automation. “As our customers continue to globalize, we must be able to meet them where they are across the world. Our partnership with FlowCAD gives us the unique ability to deliver localized services and support to our customers at the scale they need.”

FlowCAD has served as the Cadence channel partner for Central Europe since 2003. The combined strength of both EMA and FlowCAD enables both companies to support the needs of sophisticated, multi-disciplined, and multi-national design teams, EMA said in a statement.

“This partnership is a natural fit for both companies,” said Dirk Mueller, CEO, FlowCAD. “Both EMA and FlowCAD have built their businesses and reputations on world-class customer service and support. With our combined resources we will be able to provide customers a level of service that cannot be matched in the industry.”
