Founder and Managing Director Yavuz Murtezaoglu
ModuleWorks was founded by Yavuz Murtezaoglu in 2003, initially specializing in 5-Axis machining technology; but the origins of the company can be traced back to the 1990’s. During that time Yavuz was a partner with a successful German Mastercam reseller, Camaix, developing 5-Axis machining technology as a plug-in for the Mastercam product.
ModuleWorks started with a few industry partners, but the strength of the technology and increasing worldwide demand for 5-Axis machining meant rapid growth with many additional partners. As of 2014, ModuleWorks has more than 100 industry partners with over 20,000 installed seats of software around the world. ModuleWorks has invested heavily in R&D to meet the demands of its partners and now has development centres in Germany, Romania, Ukraine, Russia and the UK. The company is now more than 100 strong with the vast majority focused purely on R&D, producing 3 new releases each year. We have no end user products, allowing us to focus on meeting the needs of our partners. The product range has steadily grown with the addition of components for simulation and 3-Axis machining as well as sophisticated industry focused solutions for dental, woodworking, blade and port machining. In addition to the component development, we also undertake custom development projects to integrate and extend our technology to meet partner specific requirements.
