OMAHA, Neb., July 27, 2017 — (PRNewswire) — MultiMechanics, the leading developer of virtual testing software designed to help companies reduce physical prototyping and testing, today announced it raised $1.9 million in new financing, with investments from Solvay Ventures, Anzu Partners, and Invest Nebraska. The new investment will be used to grow the company's engineering team, further its product development pipeline, and expand its position in the commercial marketplace.

"This investment round will not only help us maintain our projected growth path," said Flavio Souza, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, "but also ensure we attract the best talent both here in Omaha and from outside of the region, so we can keep pushing the boundaries of our technology."

"Our customers greatly benefit from the software systems we develop, and I am delighted that we have broad support from these new investors to help us continue to grow our team, our product offerings, and our business," said Leandro Castro, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of MultiMechanics.

Based in Omaha, Nebraska, MultiMechanics enables the modeling and failure prediction of complex materials at an unprecedented level of accuracy and speed. The breakthrough TRUE Multiscaleâ„¢ technology, developed over 6 years, accurately predicts and visualizes stresses and crack propagation at multiple scales, simultaneously. The software enables innovation acceleration in a large range of industries: composites, polymers, 3D printing, automotive, aerospace, energy and even applications in biotech and pharmaceuticals.

The investment comes following a successful partnership between MultiMechanics and Solvay to model complex composite structures used in the automotive and aerospace industries.

"Our Composite Materials Global Business Unit carefully reviewed all modeling solutions and, by far, MultiMechanics provided the best results," said Nicolas Cudré Mauroux, Solvay's Research & Innovation Group General Manager (CTO). "We are confident this software can accelerate innovation in complex materials and the penetration of composites in the automotive and aerospace industries.
