Recently, Chaos Group, based in Bulgaria – makers of V-Ray, acquired Baltimore-based software developer and visualization firm, ASGVIS. The acquisition will consolidate V-Ray for Rhino and V-Ray for SketchUp development within the Chaos Group brand, and confirms establishment of a new Chaos Group company in the United States that should enhance services and support to customers in North America.
A working relationship with the two companies began in 2005 when ASGVIS adapted Chaos Group??s flagship plug-in renderer, V-Ray,to work with the 3D modellers Rhino and SketchUp.
“We are extremely excited by this merger,” said Peter Mitev, CEO of Chaos Group. “We have worked with ASGVIS to extend the V-Ray platform into areas of business that our other V-Ray products did not cover, and having them join the Chaos Group only serves to make the V-Ray brand even stronger. The USA has always been a key market for V-Ray, and having a dedicated office to service our customers will allow us to provide an even higher level of service and support.”
ASGVIS will officially be renamed Chaos Group USA. Peter Mitev will provide overall guidance for the new company, but there are no planned changes to the structure or employees as of this announcement.
