Hawk Ridge Systems - Your Source for Engineering Design Solutions

hrs bird


Recognition, learning, and meeting with our SOLIDWORKS customers all come together at SOLIDWORKS World. This year in Los Angeles was no exception. Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS CEO, Gian Paolo Bassi gave us a sneak preview of new products in development that will truly change the way we think about design and product realization. As always for me, the best part of SOLIDWORKS World is meeting with our customers. Thanks to all of you for partnering with us at Hawk Ridge Systems.

Dale Ford, P.Eng., President & CEO, Hawk Ridge Systems
