Global design software provider Compusoft has today (April 20) signalled a second move into the window and door sector with the planned acquisition of UK-based First Degree Systems (FDS).

Compusoft CEO David Tombre said in today’s statement: “As the leader in the UK, FDS further establishes our position in this sector and provides us with new technology that we can add to the world-class software that we already offer through our Soft Tech products. We look forward to welcoming the FDS team into the Window and Door division of Compusoft and are excited about the future with them as part of the group.”

FDS operations manager Karen Goule added: “The acquisition of FDS by Compusoft will usher us into a whole new era, complementing what has been built up over the last 30 years with the Window Designer range of software products.

“With the global experience Compusoft brings, FDS can look to expand to new markets previously untapped, with a range of products that nestle in perfectly with the existing Compusoft portfolio. The team at FDS look forward to new horizons and the opportunities this will bring to all concerned, including our customers. An exciting new era, in an already successful 30-year history.”
