ATLANTA, Feb. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Applied Software®, a leading systems integrator to the AEC, Construction and Manufacturing industries, announced today the acquisition of Tekni, a reseller of Autodesk software for the manufacturing marketplace headquartered in Chesterfield, Missouri. Since 1989, Tekni has focused on helping companies successfully deploy Autodesk Digital Prototyping solutions, enabling data management and collaboration throughout their operations, from concept to product production.

"By adding the talents and resources of Tekni to the Applied Software portfolio, we'll make it easier for our customers to access the tools they need when they need them most," said Richard Burroughs, president of Applied Software. "Tekni has a proven track record of supporting their customers as they integrate advanced prototyping software throughout their operations, and we plan to continue that tradition. We also look forward to exploring new ways to add value and give customers more options than they've ever had."

Tekni's customer base will further benefit from the acquisition through access to Applied Software's world-class integration, consulting and training services. Applied Software will also be better equipped to offer several software packages previously offered by Tekni, including a plant design suite, a factory design suite, a product design suite and a building design suite of products.

"After extensive research of all Autodesk partners, Tekni selected Applied Software due to its strong expertise with the Autodesk suite of solutions," said Vern Heyer, former owner of Tekni and current president and CEO at VMH International. "Customers of both companies should see almost immediate benefits from the combining of solutions and resources."

Applied Software will continue to leverage Heyer's significant knowledge of the manufacturing industry, including his national and international business contacts, through an ongoing strategic partnership. For more information about the acquisition, contact Applied Software at 800-899-2784.
