COMSOL forms Chinese subsidiary to expand Multiphysics simulation software presence

Jan. 16, 2014
COMSOL announced the formation of a new subsidiary located in China with offices in Shanghai and Beijing to expand presence and availability of Multiphysics simulation software.

Burlington, MA--COMSOL announced the formation of COMSOL Co., Ltd. as a new subsidiary located in China with offices in Shanghai and Beijing. The new offices establish COMSOL direct operations in China by providing software sales, technical support, comprehensive training sessions, hands-on workshops, user conferences, and customer events for its simulation software, which serves electronic, optoelectronic, and photonics applications. As a part of this opportunity, COMSOL product descriptions have been translated into Chinese for the first time and are available at

The company says expansion into the Chinese market is in response to the rapidly growing demand for COMSOL Multiphysics simulation software within the country's diverse high-tech industry and engineering community. "Shanghai and Beijing were chosen as locations for the offices due to their strong science and technology sectors and proximity to a community of talented professionals who have the expertise to best serve our customers," says Lei Chen, General Manager of COMSOL Co., Ltd.

"COMSOL Multiphysics is a very sophisticated software, and it will be very helpful to access timely technical support to get the most out of the software," says Yihe Hua, senior engineer at GE Global Research Center, Shanghai. "I believe a highly skilled local team will provide excellent services. We are happy to see that COMSOL is making this large investment in China."

Many events are being planned for the near future where existing COMSOL customers and new users alike will get ample opportunities to connect with colleagues and COMSOL team members. Launch events introducing COMSOL Multiphysics 4.4the latest version of the company's platform for the modeling and simulation of electrical, mechanical, fluid, and chemical applications--will be held this spring in Shanghai and Beijing. Following this is a series of free-of-charge workshops where participants get the opportunity to interact with COMSOL applications experts, try out the software under their guidance, and receive a trial to explore its capabilities further. Over a hundred workshops will be held throughout the country where anyone with an interest in multiphysics modeling and simulation is invited. The COMSOL Conference 2014 will be the highlight of the year with major new product releases, training sessions, and user presentations.

Due to the booming engineering market in China and the success of COMSOL Multiphysics, COMSOL is expecting the new offices to encourage tremendous growth of multiphysics simulation in China. "China's investment in R&D is one of the world's largest and is expected to keep growing fast for years to come. The country's focus on innovation and high-tech product development is a perfect match for COMSOL, which provides simulation software that boosts engineering efficiency and productivity," says Svante Littmarck, CEO and president of the COMSOL Group.
