This article is also available in:
We are happy to announce that IDEA StatiCa further expands its activities towards its customers in the Benelux. IDEA StatiCa BeNeLux B.V. was founded this October. A newly formed team will consist of people you already know as well as new ones.

Current maintenance and license contracts 

IDEA StatiCa BeNeLux has acquired all assets relating to IDEA StatiCa from MSc Engineering bv (Netherlands) and from Whitebox (Belgium, Luxembourg), taking over all the contractual liabilities and service level agreements. Also, the current team of MSc Engineering and Whitebox transitioned to IDEA StatiCa BeNeLux BV.  

All new license purchases, as well as maintenance renewals of MSc Engineering and Whitebox customers from the effective date, have to be done solely through IDEA StatiCa BeNeLux. For MSc Engineering bv customers in the Netherlands, it is Nov 15, 2020; for Whitebox customers in Belgium and Luxembourg, it is Jan 1, 2021. 

“We will make sure the transition from MSc Engineering to IDEA StatiCa BeNeLux will not affect the level of customer support we provide to engineers and fabricators. And we have exciting new projects planned to make it even better.”  

Emiel Peltenburg, IDEA StatiCa BeNeLux manager responsible for Netherlands. 

There is no change for customers who purchased IDEA StatiCa through our reseller SCIA nv. They will keep getting all the necessary sales and technical support through current SCIA channels.

Juraj Sabatka, CSO&CFO of IDEA StatiCa, Director IDEA StatiCa BeNeLux 

Technical support 

Customers from Benelux will keep getting technical support from people they know and gradually meet some new faces too. We will also be rolling out a new Dutch and French content platform localized for our Benelux customers. 

„Over the last few years, we have built a lot of expertise from talking to our customers at our helpdesk. We love to solve project issues and challenges with engineers and will continue to do so.“  

Jan-Willem Verbaan, Product Engineer, IDEA StatiCa BeNeLux
