Assyst and Style3D join forces
- Style3D is sole shareholder of Assyst
- Integration of both product lines from 3D design to production
- Assyst remains independent within Style3D
Both companies are deeply rooted in apparel development and production: Style3D in Asia and Assyst in EMEA. Together, they are planning to create a global product offering for producers and brands that covers the entire apparel value chain from development to production and the various sales touchpoints.
Starting point will be the integration of the flagship products of both companies – Style3D and Assyst.CAD. Style3D is currently the most advanced 3D fashion design software with a high growth rate globally. While Assyst is market leader with its 2D CAD technology in Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland and offers a seamless software portfolio from 2D and 3D CAD to production (Automarker) and to all sales touchpoints.
Shared mission: sustainable, profitable apparel production
Major driver of the merger is the companies’ complimentary technology offering and the vision to create a seamless digital process from providing digital fabric and accessories up to the realization of products.
The merger also strengthens Assyst's competitive position in the 3D design sector. Style3D, in turn, will benefit from Assyst's expertise in the development, CAD and digital simulation of apparel products and the access to the international market.
"Style3D and Assyst have the same commitment to quality and the same roots in apparel production. The two companies match very well. The chemistry is just right," says Hans Peter Hiemer, Managing Director, Assyst
"Assyst is the undisputed market leader for CAD and 3D CAD in Germany. We bring the market advantages for 3D simulation in the retail and brand sector. The apparel industry will benefit tremendously," says Eric Liu, CEO, Style3D
Joint development: networking the entire value chain
The textile and apparel industry are facing intense challenges in terms of sustainability and profitability. Automation and digitally integrated processes are the solution. However, this requires high performance standards in 3D and 2D, transparency in material usage, and connectivity to production processes. Together, Style3D and Assyst can provide this necessary solution. The new end-to-end technology offering from Assyst and Style3D will create the conditions for the rapid, sustainable development of profitable garments as well as for innovative offerings or even new business models.
Global focus: Style3D pushes ahead with internationalization
Looking ahead to the future, both parties will offer 2D-based & 3D-based one-stop solutions for business clients leveraging on their global tech base and complementary serviceable resource dominance.
The two teams combine their expertise to provide premium customer service. On January 24-26, the Assyst-Style3D team will meet clients and present its products at the Assyst Experience at Munich Fabric Start
