COMPUPLAST International Inc. was founded in December of 1990 by its president and CEO, Dr. Jiri Vlcek , along with several colleagues and co-workers. The company head-quarters is located in the city of Zlin (about 300 km East of Prague) in the Czech Republic and was one of the first of the many private enterprises to appear in the former Czechoslovakia since the 1989 revolution. Compuplast now also has offices in North America and over 15 representatives world wide.
Since its beginnings, COMPUPLAST has focused on the development of PC based, user-friendly, CAE software for the simulation, analysis, design and troubleshooting of plastics processing operations. The software is based on the over 50 years of combined industrial experience of the Compuplast Associates and their co-operative research at the Centre for Advanced Polymer Processing and Design (CAPPA-D), at McMaster University, in Hamilton, Canada.
As an international organization, COMPUPLAST co-operates closely with industrial researchers as well as several universities around the world to make sure that the products contain the latest technology and theories that have been proven by sound research methods and field tested. COMPUPLAST is also involved in R&D and consulting projects with several corporations for process simulation, optimization, and equipment design.
