FRILO significantly expands its portfolio in foundation engineering through strategic acquisition of DC-Software

FRILO Software GmbH has successfully completed the acquisition of the software company DC-Software Doster & Christmann GmbH as of 01.04.2022. The Munich-based company has been developing special software solutions for foundation engineering since 1989. With the acquisition, FRILO is strategically expanding its product portfolio in the foundation engineering segment and thus strengthening its position as a leading provider of structural design programs.

With more than 30 programs, DC Software covers a comprehensive range of digital foundation engineering solutions. The software company's portfolio is divided into two sub-segments of foundation engineering. Users use the powerful programs of the DC-Soil segment for subsoil exploration, soil and contaminated site investigations and the display of geothermal boreholes and geothermal probes. The DC-Foundation program group, on the other hand, comprises sophisticated software solutions for geotechnical calculations, foundation engineering as well as groundwater drawdown and infiltration.

Since its foundation in 1989, DC-Software has developed into a sustainably growing and profitable company. With the takeover of the company, which is established on the DACH market, FRILO is expanding its portfolio in the foundation engineering segment in a trend-setting way. “We are extremely pleased to have gained many years of expertise in software development in the specialist field of foundation engineering for our customers with DC-Software," says Markus Gallenberger, CEO of FRILO. "Due to the addition of our foundation engineering solutions, our customers benefit from an enormous portfolio of solutions that FRILO provides for their day-to-day business. A consistently growing and beneficial product portfolio always makes the difference for our customers.”

“We attach great importance to ensuring continuity for customers and employees with the takeover. I am convinced that FRILO and the Nemetschek Group provide the appropriate conditions for this,” says Dr.-Ing. Armin Doster, co-founder of DC-Software. “We expect this step to enable us to profitably utilise the strong synergies between the two companies and to benefit from new impulses.”
