AVEVA is celebrating 45 years since its inception as a research project set up in 1967 at University of Cambridge. The company is one of several success stories from the university including ARM and Autonomy. AVEVA pioneered the world’s first 3D plant design system in 1976. The company has now expanded vastly and has 46 offices in more than 25 countries.
‘It’s great to look back and see how far AVEVA has come from our early CADCentre days and the contribution we’ve made to the process plant, power and marine software industry,’ said Dave Wheeldon, CTO, AVEVA. ‘We have introduced many innovations that have changed the way that our customers work, improving project efficiency and the quality of their deliverables. From the start we have always worked closely with customers and listened to their needs. We’ve created an evolving and unmatched suite of products and services that customers rely on to create and operate the world’s most complex engineering assets.’
‘Since AVEVA floated as CADCentre back in 1996, we’ve had an extremely strong financial track record,’ said James Kid, FCO, AVEVA. ‘This year we have again delivered record revenue and profit figures in a difficult global market. This is a real testament to what can be achieved when we stay focused on the needs of our customers and relentlessly work to develop exciting market strategies.’
‘AVEVA is proud to be a UK company with a very strong global presence. We have a significant UK work force, but an even larger international team that has been expanding rapidly especially in fast moving economies such as Russia, China, the Middle East and Latin America. Our people define AVEVA’s values and culture.’
