Our aim is to become a key player on the European CAE market within the next two years, said Jens O. Schindler, ITI Managing Director, about the aims of the new facility. “In the past years ITI strengthened its position as a leader in virtual system engineering and became an internationally-demanded engineering partner, adds Dr. Andreas Uhlig, ITI Managing Director, and further explains: “With highly-qualified people and financial strength we are ready for new investments to expand our business. The establishment of the subsidiary is a milestone in ITI’s company history.
