Siemens purchases modelling firm Aimsun


03 April 2018

Siemens is to buy Spanish-based transport modelling firm Aimsun for an undisclosed sum.

Aimsun will be managed as an independent company. Announcing the purchase, Siemens mobility division chief executive Michael Peter said: “Siemens is aiming to become a fully integrated provider of intermodal door-to-door travel solutions. We have taken several steps in the recent past to strengthen our portfolio and competence in the growing area of digitised, data-driven mobility solutions. In combination with the acquisition of HaCon, a software provider for public transportation, mobility, and logistics, we are expanding our strong position in rail and road automation technology.”

Jaime L. Ferrer, chief executive of Aimsun, said: “The combination of our companies will  provide a platform for our software to be used throughout central Europe and in emergent markets.”

Porsche purchased German-based modelling firm PTV last year.
