István Nadj (CAD-Terv): We all had cooperated individually. Through these cooperations the relationship between the managers grew better and better.

The main motivation to be part of the 3DX Alliance is that I believe together we are stronger.

Günther Müller (EBM): The initiative for the 3DX Alliance goes back to the two companies Schwindt and Technodat. After IBS, CAD-Terv and Helbling, we were asked whether we would be open to work together.

Furthermore, the individual owners have incorporated the purpose and ideals of the Alliance within all areas of service in their respective organizations. The changes within the member companies are remarkable: the development of new market perspectives and innovative solutions. We are working in an incredibly complex and challenging environment in which we see market adjustments being made among both our customers and competitors alike.
