Toronto — Altair Engineering, Inc has opened an office in Montreal. The company says the expansion follows a substantial increase in demand for Altair’s HyperWorks suite of CAE tools among major aerospace manufacturers and suppliers in Canada.

Located at 469 Rue Jean Talon Ouest, the Montreal office conducts technical support and engineering projects and is consulting with aerospace companies on deployment of HyperWorks solutions.

According to Altair, the expansion of HyperWorks within the Canadian aerospace engineering community is indicative of the strength of Canada’s aerospace industry and the important role Altair’s technology plays in this market.

Altair’s HyperMesh solver-neutral finite element modeling software, for example, enables the industry to extend its use of efficient computer modeling and analysis during the early phase of aircraft design. Altair’s OptiStruct allows aerospace engineers to optimize the weight and performance of structures and components of all material types including composites.

Altair Engineering Canada has been headquartered in Toronto since 2006. The company established a presence in Quebec in 2008 and today works with the country’s key aerospace producers and suppliers.
