Three-way merger creates A2K Technologies

AEC Systems, KarelCAB, and ADA CADPartners merge operations

AEC Systems, KarelCAD, and ADA CADPartners have signed an agreement to merge individual business operation to create Autodesk value-added reseller (VAR), A2K Technologies.

A2K commenced trading on February 1 with the goal of delivering complete technology solutions to the global infrastructure, building, mining, and manufacturing industries.

The company will be led by joint chief executive officers (CEOs), Fari Fanaeyan and Paul Laycock, who were part of the former ownership of AEC and KarelCAD, respectively. In addition, the management team will consist of key leaders from both businesses.

“At the centre of this decision is our shared desire to deliver a new level of vision, service and innovation,” Fanaeyan said. “A2K is committed to leading industry, delivering solutions to reduce technology complexity and cost, whilst improving efficiency, time to market, and sustainability.”

A2K has over 150 staff at present. There will be limited physical change to its existing offices in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Auckland, and Beijing.

Fanaeyan and Laycock are adamant that clients and staff from the old businesses will experience positive change as a result of the move.

“In addition to the far deeper level of technical service offerings, we will benefit from our combined operations, resources and infrastructure that has characterised the unique businesses until now,” the CEOs said.
