Our History


Symetri (then CAD-Quality/CAD-Q) is founded in 1989 by engineers who want to enable people, themselves included, to work smarter. They see CAD as the way forward and set out to improve the Swedish design industry with the latest and smartest tools and workflows. 

In the early 2000s, CAD-Q increases the expertise within facility management in Sweden and expands its operations to Norway.

The year 2005 is a turning point as Addnode buys CAD-Q. Being a part of Addnode’s Design Management division means long-term stability and new opportunities for growth.

The next 10 years are marked by expansion in the Nordics and internationalisation, supported by the development of the company’s own technology.

CAD-Q establishes operations in Finland and Denmark in 2010.

The launch of Sovelia and Naviate strengthens CAD-Q’s offering of leading-edge technology with their own IP, developed to meet the needs of customers within the product-development and architecture industries. Both the technical expertise and service on offer to customers increase over the years.

The acquisition of Symetri in 2014 establishes CAD-Q in the UK, providing leading-edge solutions and services, as well as knowledge gained from years of experience working in the Nordics

To signal the growth of the company and a focus shift from solution provider to customer-centric partner, CAD-Q changes its name to Symetri in 2016.

With the acquisition of MCAD in 2018, Symetri increases its ability to deliver solutions and multidisciplinary projects that make a real difference to the Swedish manufacturing industry.

In the UK, Symetri’s portfolio is broadened with expert consultancy and world-class data management systems (TDM, PDM & PLM), as well as expertise in 3D design and BIM software, additional services and increased delivery capacity.

With the acquisition of Excitech in 2020, Symetri gains additional, extensive expertise in the UK construction and architecture sectors, exceptional BIM skills and innovative IP.

In 2021, Symetri establishes operations in Ireland and gains expertise within the construction and manufacturing sector with the acquisition of Procad Ltd.
