THE HAWK RIDGE SYSTEMS STORY

Empowering Engineers Since 1996
 

WHO WE ARE

Since 1996, we have been empowering innovators like you, because we are like you.

At Hawk Ridge Systems, we are imaginative, inquisitive, always testing the limits and breaking the mold. But most of all, we are constantly seeking opportunities for continued growth and change... in ourselves, for our customers, and for the world around us.

While we know that most engineers are built on the do-it-yourself mentality, we also recognize that to truly build world-changing products, it takes much more.

That's where we come in.

To empower every customer to reach their highest goals, we partner with you to understand your unique challenges and then provide you with the right solutions, coupled with responsive, effective support and deep product and industry expertise to help ensure your long-term success.

HAWK RIDGE SYSTEMS THROUGH THE YEARS

OUR QUEST TO PROVIDE THE YOU WITH THE BEST INDUSTRY EXPERTS AND END-TO-END ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS

1996

FUELED BY A SINGLE VISION

Dale Ford, CEO, started Hawk Ridge Systems out of a small office in northern California, fueled by coffee and the vision of providing the best engineering service and support.

1998

CAD Soars with SOLIDWORKS

When a new, powerful CAD tool emerged, Hawk Ridge Systems was one of the first to see its game-changing potential and begin backing SOLIDWORKS software.

1999

New Simulation Solutions

Knowing that one of the best ways for our customers to increase their bottom line is to shorten design cycles and reduce prototyping, we decided it was time to add new simulation solutions to our portfolio. We also expanded to serve the Pacific Northwest market.

2006

HELPING CUSTOMERS TAKE CONTROL OF THEIR DATA

Identifying a new key pain point for our customers, it was time to add product data management tools. At this time, we also expanded our coverage to reach engineers across the entire west coast – from southern California to British Columbia.

2012

New CAM & Electrical Design Solutions

We knew it would be a challenge to get into the CAM and electrical game, but the new tools were a great opportunity to help our customers continue to further streamline their design-to-manufacturing processes.

2012

Serving All of Canada

One of our first big milestones, we were excited in 2012 to announce that we had expanded our footprint to be able to serve engineers across all of Canada.

2016

3D Scanning Technology Introduced

Taking a huge leap forward, we brought the future to our product portfolio by adding incredible technology that allowed our customers to tackle reverse engineering.

2017

Adding Markforged and HP 3D Printing Solutions

Just when you thought the 3D printing industry was unchangeable, Markforged and HP thought otherwise. Adding this innovative technology for our customers was a no-brainer.

2017

NOW EMPOWERING THE MIDWEST

We saw another under-served market in the Midwest and brought our services and solutions to the heart of America to begin helping more customers grow at incredible rates.

2020

OUR QUEST TO SERVE ENGINEERS ACROSS NORTH AMERICA CONTINUES

We continued to seek out opportunities to create partnerships, expand our footprint, and bring in more experts to be able to better serve our growing customer base.

2020

NEW FLEXIBLE TRAINING OPTIONS

Through a new strategic partnership with SolidProfessor, we were able to add over 7,500 online, on-demand training modules as part of our SOLIDWORKS subscription plan.

2021

COAST TO COAST COVERAGE

Another huge milestone! By the end of 2021, we had partnered with another very talented team and could officially say that we now serve and support engineers from coast to coast in both Canada and the US.

MEETING YOU WHERE YOU'RE AT

With more than 20 office locations and over 300 employees across North America, we are here to provide you with the best engineering and design solutions, support and services – and we're just getting started.
