In 2003, e-Xstream engineering was established in Belgium as the result of collaboration of Dr. Roger Assaker with Prof. Issam Doghri from University of Louvain on material modelling and micromechanics. Soon after that the company opened its offices in Luxembourg.
Solvay group in Belgium and Goodyear in Luxembourg were the first to manifest their interest in e-Xstream product – Digimat, advanced material modelling software. The customers’ pool and turnover kept growing fast throughout the years. e-Xstream engineering has become the key player in the materials modelling segment with 9 out of 10 largest OEMs and most material suppliers among its clients.
With software enhancements coming out on average every six months and continuous development, e-Xstream has become the leading specialist in composite materials and plastics for all types of industries.
Acquisition by MSC Software
The historical structure of the company was preserved and international developments were intensified. In three years span, the company tripled its size and increased its turnover by three and a half times.
In 2019 MSC Software was acquired by Swedish group Hexagon, which brought additional value and allowed to connect the virtual and the physical worlds.
e-Xstream engineering is part of Hexagon, a leading global provider of information technologies that drive productivity and quality across geospatial and industrial enterprise applications.
Hexagon’s solutions integrate sensors, software, domain knowledge and customer workflows into intelligent information ecosystems that deliver actionable information. They are used in a broad range of vital industries.

ING Team Run in Luxembourg, 2019
Corporate Rock-climbing Day Out in Belgium, 2019
In 2020 e-Xstream engineering has supported a team of two students from Luxembourg in 4LTrophy2020 Humanitarian Race. Such a crazy adventure with a great cause is in line with our company's DNA and values. The goal of the race was making education for children in the distant desert areas more accessible.
