Visiativ Benelux

CAD supplier Design Solutions and 3D printing partner Layertec become Visiativ

Starting February 1st 2023, SOLIDWORKS Reseller Design Solutions and sister company Layertec, supplier of Desktop Metal, Formlabs, and Ultimaker 3D printers, will continue under the name Visiativ. This is the next step in their integration with their French parent company.

Design Solutions is one of the three largest SOLIDWORKS resellers in the Benelux region. Layertec has established itself as a full-service 3D printing partner for the manufacturing industry. Together they were acquired by the French, publicly traded, Visiativ Group in November 2018. In early 2022, the decision was made to align the businesses with the brand image of the parent company.

One strong Dassault Systèmes partner

Design Solutions BV will continue under the name Visiativ Netherlands. The Belgian branch in Aalst will henceforth be named Visiativ Belgium. The activities of sister company Visiativ Industry Solution BV, supplier of CATIA and DELMIA, have been integrated with Visiativ Netherlands and Belgium. This consolidates all Dassault Systèmes products that Visiativ delivers in the Benelux into one company.

More solutions, more value

Visiativ customers in the Netherlands and Belgium can now choose from both the SOLIDWORKS range and that of CATIA, DELMIA, and ENOVIA. Additionally, all the expertise within the global Visiativ Group is at their disposal. To make the most of this added value, the integration with the French parent company will be strengthened.

In addition, the solutions of the Visiativ Innovation Platform will be brought to the Benelux market, including affordable, powerful Data Management, Customer Portal, and Spare Parts solutions for SMEs. Combined with the expertise of Visiativ 3D Printing, the former Layertec, Visiativ Benelux is a strong innovation and digitalization partner for the Dutch and Belgian manufacturing industry.

New website and 3D printing webshop

After a rebranding project of several months, the renovated websites and were launched on February 1. They will be further developed and refined this year. Of course, Layertec’s 3D printing webshop has also been rebranded with the Visiativ look and feel, and has a new internet address:
