IDEA StatiCa US LLC founded

We are thrilled to announce that IDEA StatiCa now has a US office. After years of development and localization of our products for the US engineering community it was high time to take the next step.

IDEA StatiCa US’s office is located in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, just outside of Philadelphia, PA. It is led by Dave Eckrote, an experienced structural engineer and manager.

We would like to thank our current US customers of IDEA StatiCa for putting trust in us and helping us to shape the product for the US market. Our unique solution for steel connection design has revolutionized the way 5000+ engineering offices and fabricators around the world work. The main purpose of IDEA StatiCa US is to be as close to our US customers as possible – in technical support, customer feedback and working with the engineering community.

Here is what one of our customers, Jason McCool of Robbins Engineering Consultants, thinks

“Since I first started using IDEA StatiCa Connection in 2017, I have been consistently pleased with it. It starts at a higher, more versatile level than any of the other connection design software I’ve used in the past. The customer support is more responsive, and the developers just keep improving the program instead of resting on their past success. I’m looking forward to seeing their growing presence here in the US with the opening of their new office near Philadelphia.”

Meet Dave Eckrote

Dave has had a diverse career in structural engineering from design of various types of buildings to educating other engineers about ways to save time and money on their projects through software and design options.  He volunteers his time to work on the board of Structural Engineers Association of Pennsylvania, chairs the Northeast Coalition of Structural Engineers Associations and works on the Program Committee of Mid-Atlantic Steel Fabricators Association.  He is a graduate of Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA and holds a Professional Engineer license in Pennsylvania.  He lives in Mount Laurel, NJ with his wife, Julie.  When he is not working, you will probably find him on a golf course.

We are now looking for two more people to join our team – check the job posting for Product Engineer and Regional Engineer.
