PRLog – Sep. 9, 2014 – MURRAY, Utah — Phoenix Analysis & Design Technologies, Inc. (PADT, Inc. (http://www.padtinc.com/)), the Southwest’s largest provider of simulation, product development, and rapid prototyping
services and products, is pleased to announce the opening of their new local office in the Salt Lake City area in Murray, Utah.  The location, 5282 S Commerce Dr, is right off I-15 at Spartan St, Only 17 miles from downtown Salt Lake City. This is PADT’s fourth office joining their main office in Tempe, Arizona, the PADT Colorado office in Littleton, Colorado, and the PADT New Mexico Office in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

PADT has been working with Utah companies for over fifteen years, and has had employees working from their homes for about five. The new office will allow the local team, and employees visiting from other PADT facilities, the opportunity to work in a familiar location, have direct access to PADT’s infrastructure, and provide customers a place to view the 3D Printing, simulation, and product development technologies that PADT offers.

Mario Vargas, manager for Hardware Sales, commented “we are very excited to have a fixed place to meet with our customers and allow them the ability to see the products we offer right down the freeway.”  The new office will have room for several demonstration rapid prototyping additive manufacturing systems (3D Printers) from Stratasys, space to keep some of the more common supplies that customers need, and a large meeting room for seminars and training.

The sales team in the PADT Utah office will focus on distributing four products lines:  The first is the complete suite of simulation software from ANSYS, Inc. (ANSS) (www.ANSYS.com). These tools are used by companies around the world to simulate products before testing, resulting in better performance for less cost and in less time.  The second line of products are the 3D Printer and Direct Digital Manufacturing systems from Stratasys (SSYS) (www.STRATASYS.com).  Both ANSYS, Inc. and Stratasys are the world leaders in their respective markets, and PADT is proud to be one of their reselling partners for Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico.  The third product line is PADT’s CUBE Systems, (www.padtinc.com/cube-hvpc) their own brand of High Value Performance Computers specifically designed and configured for the advanced simulation user. Finally, we will be distributing a range of hardware and software solutions for scanning (http://www.padtinc.com/products/software/geomagic/index.html) from this office.

Additionally, the office will serve as a place for PADT’s technical staff to work together at a single location, providing simulation consulting, training and technical support.  As the company grows, the area has sufficient expansion opportunities to allow for more employees and equipment. “Utah has an extremely active technology sector.  The universities and the local business community work well together to create and grow high-tech companies.” noted one of PADT’s four owners, Ward Rand, “We see the state’s focus on high technology as a perfect fit for us.  By being local we can be better involved in the delivery of local services, provide unique employment opportunities to the fantastic engineering talent in the area, and grow our Angel investment activities to include Utah.”
