Austria-based Softsolution plans to open its first office in North America on January 1, 2019, in Illinois.

The company has worked with FeneTech for the last ten years to establish and service their customer base in North America, but now plans to provide local support to customers by creating a facility that will house a showroom, testing center and inventory warehouse.

“FeneTech has enjoyed a long and mutually beneficial partnership with Softsolution here in North America,” says FeneTech president and CEO Ron Crowl. “We are looking to continue our excellent working relationship.”

Softslution CEO Thomas Schuller adds, “I personally want to thank FeneTech for their extraordinary support. This has resulted in the combined success of both companies, and I’m happy that we will continue to work together.”

Nate Huffman, who currently serves as FeneTech’s business development liaison with Softsolution, will serve as Softsolution North America president with support from Softsolution international sales director Peter Pfannenstill.
