Microdesk has become Symetri
In March 2022, Microdesk was acquired by Symetri. Part of the Addnode Group, Symetri is one of Europe’s leading providers of digital BIM, product design and lifecycle solutions.
Whilst our US operations will continue to operate as Microdesk for the remainder of this year, in the UK we have now become Symetri, operating as one company since the beginning of April 2022. Please rest assured its business as usual for us and your service experience will not be impacted.
