Quest Integration Inc., a Post Falls-based specialty manufacturing-design software seller and support provider, has expanded into Western Washington with a new office in West Seattle, says Chantel Wilkes, a Quest spokeswoman.
The new office adds to Quest’s current locations in Post Falls and Bozeman, Mont.
Quest provides software applications and support for 3-D design and manufacturing, including electrical design, printed circuit board design, and virtual analysis.
Its main software product line is SolidWorks 3-D computer-aided design software, which Quest has been selling for nearly two decades, Wilkes says.
With the expansion, Quest also is now authorized to sell SolidWorks software in the education arena in Oregon.
“We provide licensing for students to learn to use the software that teachers use at several local schools,” Wilkes says. “Students are being trained to use the same software that commercial companies are using. They are graduating with career skills.”
Quest’s full territory for commercial sales now includes all of Washington state, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming.
Manufacturers that use SolidWorks products range from makers of simple metal parts to makers of complex PVC designs, Wilkes says.
Last year, Quest also launched Ideas to Matter, a hardware division of the business that sells 3-D printers, including one device capable of printing carbon fiber, nylon, Fiberglas, and Kevlar, among other materials.
Quest currently has 20 employees and is expanding, she says.
“Our growth is accelerating,” Wilkes asserts.
