Founded in 1970, ANSYS employs nearly 3,000 professionals, many of whom are expert M.S. and Ph.D.-level engineers in finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, electronics, semiconductors, embedded software and design optimization. Our exceptional staff is passionate about pushing the limits of world-class simulation technology so our customers can turn their design concepts into successful, innovative products faster and at lower cost. ANSYS is the global leader in engineering simulation. We help the world’s most innovative companies deliver radically better products to their customers. By offering the best and broadest portfolio of engineering simulation software, we help them solve the most complex design challenges and engineer products limited only by imagination.

Engineering simulation is our sole focus. For more than 45 years, we have consistently advanced this technology to meet evolving customer needs. Ansys develops, markets and supports engineering simulation software used to predict how product designs will behave in real-world environments. We continually advance simulation solutions by
- Developing or acquiring the very best technologies
- Integrating them into a unified simulation platform capable of complex, multiphysics solutions
- Providing system services, including high-performance computing (HPC) and Cloud solutions, to manage simulation processes and data
The ANSYS suite spans the entire range of physics, so customers can confidently assess how their designs will behave in a real-world environment — helping to ensure product success at the same time. Our software not only delivers efficiency, it drives innovation. The technology reduces or eliminates physical constraints, enabling simulated tests that might otherwise not be possible. It fosters what-if thinking so engineers can readily explore design alternatives for an optimal solution. We call this process Simulation-Driven Product Development.
Why are so many innovative companies choosing to partner with ANSYS? The answer is the ANSYS Advantages, which set our engineering simulation software apart from other CAE tools. Together, these principles help ensure that our portfolio adds value to the engineering design process, rather than a solution that only partially solves problems.
We extend functionality by partnering with independent software vendors, including computer-aided design (CAD) and product lifecycle management (PLM) developers as well as niche organizations that range from physics (such as acoustics) to optimization to materials data.
Finally, we partner with key hardware vendors to ensure you can get the most accurate solution in the fastest amount of time. The collaboration helps customers in all industries navigate the rapidly changing high-performance computing (HPC) landscape.
Empower our customers to design and deliver transformational products... through pervasive simulation
Corporate Responsibility for us is about creating long term value for our key stakeholders — our investors, customers, employees, partners and the environment in which we function.
Culture and values are incredibly important to Ansys. They inform us of who we are as a company and how we should act. Values are not posters hanging on a wall with trite or glib slogans. They are not a set of rules and regulations. They cannot just be handed down throughout the organization. They are shared beliefs — guideposts that we all follow when we are facing a challenge or a decision. Our values tell us how we live our lives and how we approach our jobs. Our values are crucial for fostering a culture of winning in our company:
Our customers come first because we can only be successful when we make our customers successful. This is what we do. This is why we are here. We view the world through the lens of our customers' challenges, and we align our resources to help them succeed. Every decision we make — from budgeting to prioritizing to hiring — must be done with the customer in mind.
Results and Accountability
We act with our overall goal in mind. Because we are constantly measuring and evaluating our progress, we can quickly adjust when we find room for improvement. We are personally accountable for the decisions we make, and we always strive to do the right thing for Ansys and our customers. We challenge each other to perform, and we expect our colleagues to tell us when they believe we are making a poor choice.
We know that being a market leader means we must be constantly innovating. Our customers are depending on us to develop new solutions so they can drive innovation across their industries. We are passionate about expanding our technology into new areas to benefit our customers. But innovation goes beyond technology. We are also constantly rethinking our processes to continue to drive our leadership.
Transparency and Integrity
Everything we do — from sales to advertising to accounting — we do honestly and in the best interests of Ansys. We do not have hidden agendas or conditions, as integrity and ethical conduct must be stitched into the fabric of our daily business. We encourage collaboration and full transparency in our decision-making. We share information through clear and honest communications — especially when the message is a difficult one.
We are the best in the business, and we are recognized for our expertise. Customers seek us out because of our mastery of simulation and the industries we serve. Everything we do — from building products to selling solutions to consulting with customers to running the business — we do with expertise, knowledge and passion.
We know that our diversity makes us stronger. We believe in the value of a large variety of individual backgrounds and perspectives — in fact, we go out of our way to seek them. We respect other opinions and ideas — not just because it benefits us, but because it is the right thing to do.
Sense of Urgency
We know that in the business world, things move quickly. Our customers cannot wait and neither can we. We are proactive. We make decisions quickly to drive successful outcomes, but we do so in a responsible manner.
Collaboration and Teamwork
We come from different walks of life and work in different departments, but we partner to solve our customers' problems. We speak different languages and have different opinions, but we work together to develop and provide the most amazing simulation solutions available. We live on different continents and have studied different subjects in school, but we come together as ONE Ansys.
Since its founding, Ansys has evolved from a single office that housed a small group of engineers to an international corporation with offices on three continents.
Ansys is headquartered in the United States, south of Pittsburgh in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. We have more than 75 strategic sales locations throughout the world with a network of channel partners in 50+ countries. Together the company fosters close partnerships with customers and provides local value-added service and support.
