GRAPHISOFT Acquires Cigraph Distribution Unit in Italy

BUDAPEST, January 22, 2015 – GRAPHISOFT, the global leader in Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions for architects, announced today that it has acquired the ArchiCAD and Artlantis distribution unit of Cigraph, its first distributor partner in Italy, as part of a strategic market development plan in Europe.  As a result of this acquisition, GRAPHISOFT opened its Italian office on January 15, 2015.

GRAPHISOFT and Cigraph have agreed that GRAPHISOFT Italy will take on most of Cigraph’s employees in its newly-formed Italian office. GRAPHISOFT Italy will continue to sell all GRAPHISOFT products with the current Italian ArchiCAD reseller partners, and will offer SSA services directly to customers located in Italy. Cigraph will continue operations from its current location.

Cigraph’s partnership with GRAPHISOFT dates back to 1984. With over 30 years of deep product and market knowledge in Italy, Cigraph will now focus on two core business activities:

  1. Research on ArchiCAD and Artlantis training methods and services offered to the Italian market, and
  2. Continued development of ArchiSuite, which will be expanded to include more vertical problem solutions than before.

“With this acquisition, we intend to accelerate our business growth in one of Europe’s most dynamic architectural markets,” said Andras Haidekker, GRAPHISOFT’s Vice President for EMEA-Pacific.

"We are excited about this new phase in Cigraph's history, and look forward to continuing our efforts to grow the ArchiCAD market in Italy through expanded training and research opportunities," said Istvan Toth, President of Cigraph.
