Design and BIM software provider Vectorworks, part of the Nemetschek Group, established a new corporate office in Japan to expand and support its growing customer base.

The Nemetschek Group acquired A&A Co., the Japanese distributor of Vectorworks software since 1985, from its parent company, Canon Marketing Japan. With the formation of the new office in Japan, Vectorworks aims to offer its products and services to a broader range of designers in multiple industries and specialties including product, architecture, landscape and entertainment design. The Japan office will leverage the sales infrastructure, market knowledge and technical support offered by A&A for nearly four decades to deliver an enhanced customer experience. The A&A business will be renamed Vectorworks Japan, Co. as part of this transformation, which will be completed on May 1.

“Advancing our presence in Japan marks a significant milestone in our commitment to serving designers in East Asia and beyond,” said Biplab Sarkar, Ph.D., CEO of Vectorworks. “The A&A team has a rich history in the region and has been instrumental in delivering Vectorworks’ products while providing unparalleled support to our customers. With this committed and experienced team, I am confident in our ongoing success and growth in Japan.”

A&A President Takashi Yokota will be joined by Director of Operations Takeshi Kimura and Director of Sales Moriaki Honma to oversee operations in the Japan office location.

“This acquisition is a strong move in driving our business forward in the Asia Pacific region as we continue to lead designers across the globe into the future of digitalization with intelligent software solutions,” said César Flores Rodríguez, chief division officer of planning and design and digital twin of the Nemetschek Group. “This expansion reflects our commitment to sustained development and leadership in the AEC industry and lays the foundation for an advantageous growth strategy.”

The Vectorworks Japan office is located in Tokyo, Japan. This move follows the company’s recent expansion in New Zealand earlier this year.
