The CADD Centre franchise was started in 1988 in Chennai as the third firm in the group, as the first Authorized Training Centre of AutoDesk Inc., USA (the makers of AutoCAD Software) in India. At that point of time, the number of AutoCAD installations did not exceed double digits because customers could not see value in buying an expensive piece of licensed software. Few were convinced of the viability of the training program on software that hardly had any installation base but we surged ahead with tremendous conviction. In 1990 we set up our first training centre at Bangalore to address the needs of a large number of Heavy Engineering, Defense, Space and Electronics companies.
Two years later, we set up our training centre in New Delhi to cater to the requirements of a large population of Automotive, Design engineering and Consultant organizations. In mid-1996 we set up our training centre in Bombay, which houses a large number of manufacturing units as well as corporate offices and big industrial firms. Over the years we have built up a solid reputation for offering world class CAD training and support and our accumulated technical expertise provides us the horsepower to address even the most complicated and critical needs of our large customers.
