RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., December 9, 2009- Geomagic has opened a new office in Munich, Germany, in response to the increasing demand for the company's software and services in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. The office opening is timed to support Geomagic's end-of-the-year training initiatives and promotions for EMEA customers.

Geomagic is the leading provider of software that enables companies to create highly accurate 3D models from scanned objects. The company's products improve quality and increase speed for product design, reverse engineering, engineering analysis, inspection, and visualization of as-built parts.

Chosen for its central location in the region, the Munich office houses Geomagic's EMEA technical support, training and sales teams, and includes a dedicated facility for customer and partner training. Geomagic now offers instructor-led training classes in the Munich office and plans to extend its training program to other geographical locations in EMEA.

"The Munich office is the latest example of our commitment to going beyond software to deliver to our customers the technologies, skills, shared knowledge and personalized service they need to be successful," says Tom Kurke, Geomagic's chief operating officer. "We believe that exemplary customer service is best achieved by being a partner that is on the scene in the regions where our customers operate."
