Excitech has become Symetri
Together we will achieve more
As you may recall, in January 2020 Excitech was acquired by Addnode Group, the owner of Symetri, Europe’s leading provider of software and services for design and engineering activities. Since then, we have been looking at how we can bring the two businesses together and trade as one entity.
We wanted to let you know that we have now completed this process. As of 11th January 2021, Excitech has become Symetri and the following changes have now taken place:
- Excitech Ltd has merged with Symetri Ltd
- Our legal entity is Symetri Ltd (CRN: 3239798)
- Going forward we will place orders as Symetri
- Our purchase orders now look different and have the Symetri logo (an example can be found here)
- Our name and logo have changed to Symetri
- Our website has been redirected to symetri.co.uk
- We are migrating our email addresses to Symetri addresses. In the short-term, our Excitech email addresses will redirect, however, please make sure you update your records. New email details can be found here.
Please rest assured it is business as usual for us and your trading relationship with us will not be impacted. The contacts you deal with will remain the same with the addition of some new faces from the existing Symetri operations in the UK.
Below you will find answers to some frequently asked questions. If you have any further questions or require any further information regarding this change, please do not hesitate to speak to your contact at Excitech or email email@example.com.
