Struc-Soft has been the exclusive North American reseller of Bentleys ProSteel 3D structural steel detailing and fabrication software since 2000, and also offers custom-developed ProSteel add-ons for specialized applications such as stairs, light-gauge walls and trusses, offshore platforms and jackets, pressure vessels, and towers. Through its team of certified engineering professionals, Struc-Soft also provides expert services for ProSteel users from consultation and customization to implementation, training, and long-term support.

The Struc-Soft structural group focuses on software for buildings and plants. It will serve as a Bentley center of excellence in North America for users of Bentleys extensive portfolio of products for structural steel and concrete detailing, fabrication, and construction.

The Struc-Soft plant group provides products and services for oil and gas, pulp and paper, mining and metals, pharmaceutical, chemical, manufacturing, food processing, and other plant projects throughout eastern Canada.

The plant group will become a Bentley center of excellence in Canada for users of Bentleys extensive portfolio of plant applications.

Commenting on the acquisition, John Riddle, Bentley senior vice president, Global Plant and Building, said, We welcome to Bentley Systems George Ajami, co-founder and former president of Struc-Soft, and his partner, Diane Hansen, co-founder and former vice president of Struc-Soft, along with their teams of highly qualified structural and plant professionals. Their combined expertise and experience in providing and supporting engineering solutions for structural steel and plant projects will be a valuable addition to Bentleys extensive professional services offerings.

At the same time, we look forward to integrating into the Bentley portfolio many of the customized, value-add products that the Struc-Soft team developed to serve special workflow requirements of structural engineers, steel and concrete detailers and fabricators, steel erectors, contractors, and plant designers. These products will further increase the depth of Bentleys comprehensive software solutions for the lifecycle of infrastructure.
