Japanese EDA vendor Zuken Inc. has completed the acquisition of CIM-Team GmbH, a German provider of electronic computer aided engineering software, Zuken announced last week. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

According to Zuken, the combined expertise, knowledge and strengths across different regional and industry markets will enable both Zuken and CIM-Team to offer an end-to-end electronics and electrical engineering design portfolio. Synergies between the companies' combined product offerings will offer vertical and horizontal integration within design processes, Zuken said.

"To be truly effective and maintain a strong competitive stance in the market, companies are recognizing the importance of a fully integrated design environment," said Jinya Katsube, chief operating officer of Zuken Group Worldwide. "One of our major aims within Zuken is to create a total system level design portfolio. Completing this acquisition brings us closer to fulfilling our goals."

Prior to the acquisition, CIM-Team had subsidiaries and branch offices in Switzerland, North and South America, Scandinavia, England and Italy. CIM-Team's customers included companies operating in the fields of mechanical and automotive engineering as well as vehicle and aerospace design.

Zuken has not disclosed whether any rationalization of facilities and staff would follow the CIM-Team acquisition.
