SAN FRANCISCO, and SEOUL, South Korea, Sept. 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ASD Global, the industry leader in knowledge-based engineering software solutions for early-stage design through construction planning of projects for the Process, Power and Marine (PPM) industries, has selected KorACE to be its exclusive Agent in the Korean Peninsula. KorACE is headquartered in Seoul, Korea and managed by Mr. Se Eun (SE) Kim, President and Owner. Mr. Kim's extensive experience in the PPM industries is expected to drive rapid adoption of ASD Global's solutions in Korea. Mr. Kim holds BS and MS Engineering degrees from INHA University in Incheon, Korea, where he is also an Adjunct Professor in Marine Engineering.

Mr. Kim spent several years working for Hyundai Engineering and other Korean companies, before joining the Korean operations of Intergraph Corporation, the world's largest PPM Computer-Aided Design (CAD) company.   During his 24 years at Intergraph he became CEO of Intergraph Korea and grew that market to be one of the largest for Intergraph globally.

Mr. Kim founded KorACE with the goal of becoming a leading supplier of design and engineering products and services in Korea.   KorACE sells and supports ASD Global's full product line: OptiPlant, Pipe Router, and Pipe Support Optimizer, enabling organizations to increase their engineering efficiency for pre-FEED, FEED, early-stage Detail Design, and Construction Planning of projects.   

"I am very excited to be the exclusive Agent in Korea for ASD's products, and look forward to working with all my customers to help them significantly improve their productivity and their profitability in executing large capital projects," said Mr. Kim.

Sonali Singh, president, ASD Global, responded, "We are very pleased to have KorACE representing us with their knowledge of the customer base in Korea, our industry, and the advantages and capabilities of our products. We believe Korea will be an important market for ASD Global, and Mr. Kim and KorACE will be our interface to make that happen."

"I have known SE Kim for over 20 years, and I look forward to working closely with him at KorACE," said Rob Glasier, ASD vice president of Corporate Strategy and Global Business Development. "ASD Global will continue to develop our global Agent network to support EPC and Owner/Operator customers on large engineering and construction projects around the world both on- and offshore. KorACE is an important part of that global strategy."

About OptiPlant

OptiPlant enables Owner/Operators, as well as the EPC firms who design and construct the facilities, to significantly improve the productivity of their large capital projects; reduce overall design, engineering, and construction costs; and bring those projects in on-time and under budget. OptiPlant allows customers to also "design in" the lowest overall lifecycle operating costs, by being able to envision, very early in the engineering and design phase, what those costs will be, and manage them from the beginning of a project.

OptiPlant is the leading pre-FEED and FEED solution in the industry, enabling rapid 3D modeling, review of multiple options, and generation of all required deliverables for estimating, design, procurement, construction planning, and engineering.
