Simpson Strong-TiePleasanton, Calif. – Simpson Strong-Tie recently acquired CG Visions, Inc., a U.S. company providing BIM (Building Information Modeling) technology, services and consultation to the residential building industry. The acquisition is expected to help Simpson Strong-Tie offer scalable and flexible BIM software solutions to help builders control costs and increase efficiency.

CG Visions was started in 2000 by David Bozell, a professor in the Department of Computer Graphics at Purdue University.

The team developed its own BIM and estimation tools and is an established company serving national mid-sized to large production builders.

“We are excited about this new partnership with CG Visions. We’re able to provide builders with choices in BIM and estimation solutions to help them increase efficiency at all stages of the development and building process, while strengthening our value proposition of being the trusted provider of building solutions to the construction industry,” said Simpson Strong-Tie President of North American Sales Roger Dankel.

CG Visions President David Bozell added, “The team at CG Visions is thrilled that a partnership with Simpson Strong-Tie will bring truly innovative BIM solutions to an already trusted builder partner network, and we plan to strengthen the products and services already in place while exploring innovative ideas from our current and future customers. The emphasis both companies place on exceptional customer service will result in an unparalleled offering to the builder market.”

The company’s 75 employees will remain at CG Visions’ headquarters in Indiana at the closing of the acquisition.
