TopSolid SAS, a leading publisher of CAD/CAM software for metal and wood industries worldwide, has announced ‘TopSolid India’, a new strategic partnership with DesignCell CAD/CAM Solutions Pvt. Ltd., as part of its objective to consolidate its footprint and get closer to the market.

Fitters, producers of furniture or urban amenities, outfitters of display fixtures for shopping malls, kiosks, leisure vehicles or pleasure boats all need a truly integrated design and manufacturing tool that can be customised to meet their different needs.

Since the lead times demanded in this sector require complete command of the digital chain specialists at TopSolid India – along with partners such as Hettich, Biesse, Homag, Felder and others – will provide the necessary support, implementation and learning process.

According to Mr Richard Lamure, CEO of TopSolid SAS, “The trends and strong demands of the Indian industry – such as Industry 4.0, automation, data management and connectivity – not only call for a global approach, but also professional and sharp teams to guide customers’ projects.”

The Indian market is developing rapidly and the country’s economy offers a lot of growth opportunities in the furniture and wood manufacturing industry, he said, adding: “To work closely with high-level technical support and training localisation in India, we needed to have an India-specific strategy in place. As a result, TopSolid India was born.”

Some top-notch manufacturers who have benefitted from TopSolid’s expertise are Crouzet, a French made-to-measure interior designer for luxury brands, and Linder in Germany, a worldwide elegant wooden door manufacturer.

In India, TopSolid already counts NAS Contracts Pvt. Ltd. (exclusive high-end furniture for luxury hotels), and Eudora Enterprises LLP (furniture for children and teenagers rooms) among its satisfied clients.

Mr Sunil Desai, who heads TopSolid India, says the company will focus on important industrial cities. “We will reach out to the market through trade associations, furniture manufacturing clusters and vocational schools to further increase awareness about our specialisation and woodworking solutions.”

The fact that the Indian furniture and wood-based manufacturing industry is maturing rapidly calls for new technology and working process, according to Mr Arnaud de Boisboissel, Business Unit Manager for Asia-Pacific at TopSolid SAS.

“More than 3,000 furniture makers, interior designers and cabinet makers already benefit from TopSolid’s genuine digital chain created between the design office and the workshop, avoiding numerous errors, and saving a lot of time,” he said.

TopSolid SAS is based outside Paris, and has been present on the international market since 1997.  In 2019, the company’s global footprint was more than €100 million.
