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.
As a trusted partner for our customers, we constantly seek to challenge people to work smarter for a better future. With our expertise, leading-edge technology & services we always strive to enable our customers to gain an increased competitive advantage.
We continuously challenge ourselves and our customers to work smarter and we are proud of the values that we live by.
Symetri (then CAD-Quality/CAD-Q) is founded in 1989 by engineers who want to enable people, themselves included, to work smarter. They see CAD as the way forward and set out to improve the Swedish design industry with the latest and smartest tools and workflows.
In the early 2000s, CAD-Q increases the expertise within facility management in Sweden and expands its operations to Norway.
The year 2005 is a turning point as Addnode buys CAD-Q. Being a part of Addnode’s Design Management division means long-term stability and new opportunities for growth.

The next 10 years are marked by expansion in the Nordics and internationalisation, supported by the development of the company’s own technology.
CAD-Q establishes operations in Finland and Denmark in 2010.
The launch of Sovelia and Naviate strengthens CAD-Q’s offering of leading-edge technology with their own IP, developed to meet the needs of customers within the product-development and architecture industries. Both the technical expertise and service on offer to customers increase over the years.
The acquisition of Symetri in 2014 establishes CAD-Q in the UK, providing leading-edge solutions and services, as well as knowledge gained from years of experience working in the Nordics

In the UK, Symetri’s portfolio is broadened with expert consultancy and world-class data management systems (TDM, PDM & PLM), as well as expertise in 3D design and BIM software, additional services and increased delivery capacity.
With the acquisition of Excitech in 2020, Symetri gains additional, extensive expertise in the UK construction and architecture sectors, exceptional BIM skills and innovative IP.
In 2021, Symetri establishes operations in Ireland and gains expertise within the construction and manufacturing sector with the acquisition of Procad Ltd.
