Acquisition will provide strong design and workflow solutions in Australasia


Central Innovation Ltd and Cadimage Group Ltd has announced an agreement in which Central Innovation has acquired 100% of the assets of Cadimage Group and Cadimage UK.

This action is intended to advance Central Innovation’s mission to become a leading provider of design and workflow solutions to the manufacturing and AEC sectors in Australia and New Zealand.

The acquisition combines the strengths of both organisations to create a comprehensive suite of Open BIM solutions in Australia and New Zealand.

The range of solutions includes best of breed software Archicad, DDS-CAD and Solibri, of which Central Innovation is the exclusive distributor across Australia and New Zealand.


Years of service experience

Central Innovation chief executive Max Piper says the coming together of Central Innovation and Cadimage can leverage the strengths of both teams to create complete solutions for customers across the AEC market in Australia and New Zealand.

“Cadimage Group has more than 27 years in New Zealand, and Central Innovation has 25 years of service in Australia to AEC customers,” Mr Piper says.

“By combining these two great companies, we are essentially placing the final puzzle piece, and will be able to go to market stronger than ever.”

Cadimage Group managing director Campbell Yule says this really is a great step forward for both companies.

“For us, we have found a company that values and understands our business and customers. This deal ensures that our existing team and solutions offering will continue to expand,” Mr Yule says.
