Over the past decade, L.A. CAD has served the Southern California market with top-quality, comprehensive CAD-related solutions, creating a unique brand that is valued and trusted by our customers
Costa Mesa, Calif. (PRWEB) August 6, 2007
L.A. CAD, Inc., Southern California's largest provider of computer-aided design (CAD) consulting, training and support services, and the Western U.S.'s largest reseller of Autodesk® solutions, today announced it has changed its name to U.S. CAD, Inc. The U.S. CAD™ name reflects the company's continuing growth and expanding customer base in the civil, mechanical and architectural design, building-engineering and GeoSpatial industries.
The company's current offices in Los Angeles, Costa Mesa and San Diego (operating as S.D. CAD) will become U.S. CAD facilities, and additional locations are being explored outside Southern California, initially in the West.
"Over the past decade, L.A. CAD has served the Southern California market with top-quality, comprehensive CAD-related solutions, creating a unique brand that is valued and trusted by our customers," said company founder and CEO Danny Counts. "Many of our larger customers have operations outside Southern California, and they have encouraged us to expand to serve those operations and markets as well. We are now taking our company to the next level, focusing initially on growth in the western U.S., to help our existing customers, and new customers, achieve more."
"As we prepare to open our first office outside Southern California, we believe this is the perfect time to change our name to U.S. CAD," said Daniel Hebert, vice president of L.A. CAD. "The L.A. CAD and S.D. CAD names have served us well as we have grown locally, but our expanding capabilities and reach simply aren't fully reflected in these names. Our customers can be assured however, that no matter where U.S. CAD operates, we will continue to provide the same exceptional service, attention and focus, along with the dynamic solutions and integrity for which we have become known."
To facilitate a smooth transition for customers, U.S. CAD will gradually replace the L.A. CAD and S.D. CAD identities over the coming year, with company offices, websites and marketing materials being co-branded initially.
"As our customers and prospects become more familiar with U.S. CAD and realize we are the same company, with the same dedication to providing the best solutions, service offerings and customer support, we will phase out the L.A. CAD and S.D. CAD names entirely," said Patricia Rivadeneyra, marketing director for U.S. CAD. "Most importantly, U.S. CAD's growing technical expertise and capabilities will help all of our customers be even more successful, wherever they do business."
About U.S. CAD
U.S. CAD began as L.A. CAD in 1999, providing technical training and consulting services around the Autodesk civil engineering and architectural technologies and, later, the Autodesk manufacturing technologies. A few years after its founding, L.A. CAD became Autodesk's largest partner in the Western Region. The company's focus, from the leadership down, has always been on providing technical expertise and customized training to deliver superior customer solutions. L.A. CAD became an Autodesk Training Center (ATC) in 1999, before that was required of all Autodesk Premier Solutions Providers. Since then, the company has consistently been a top ATC by providing more training than any other center in the Western Region. Customers especially value the company's quality instruction (from Autodesk Certified Instructors and, more recently, Autodesk Approved Instructors), and its flexible training options, including modular, mobile training labs that deliver training wherever the customer needs it. In 2004, L.A. CAD became an Autodesk Premier Solutions Provider (PSP) for civil engineering, Geospatial, building architecture, and state and local government solutions. Now as U.S. CAD, the company currently holds the most PSP authorizations in the Western Region.
With headquarters in Costa Mesa, Calif., U.S. CAD, Inc. is a major provider of computer-aided design (CAD) software solutions and consulting, training and support services, specializing in the civil, mechanical and architectural design, building-engineering and GeoSpatial industries. The company's technical expertise and customer focus, along with its high number of Autodesk Approved Instructors and Implementation Certification Experts, and its Autodesk Authorized Training Centers, have made it the Autodesk provider of choice for many top and rapidly growing CAD-related companies.
