    Transportation Design Support for GAC USA using Autodesk Alias and Autodesk VRED
    Guangzhou Automobile Group Co., Ltd. (“GAC”) was incorporated in June 1997. In 2021, GAC’s production and sales both  exceeded 2 million, with a positive year-on-year growth. Based on export planning, GAC Group successfully pushed ahead its international business, and GAC MOTOR was born with the right time.            As of today, GAC MOTOR has set up the oversea distribution in 26 countries in five major regions. In order to further optimize the development path, the international strategic plan has been clarified.                GAC USA was needing to ramp-up its Autodesk software and services tools quickly, as they were hiring additional design staff to launch a new car design project.https://www.gac-motor.com/en/index
    Complete Services Support for Subaru NA using Autodesk Software
    Subaru America is committed to building vehicles their customers can rely on while being a part of a greater good. From their Share the Love events that support numerous charitable organizations to funding they provide for nonprofit organizations in their communities across the country to their zero-landfill production plant, they are proud to say that Subaru is More Than a Car Company. Subaru America has its US design office based in Tustin, CA. This studio got the green light from their parent company in Japan to add more design resources, get training, acquire contractors to do CAS modeling with Alias and generally double in size by September but didn't know with whom the should entrust to get this done.
    Linkage Supports Waymo's Autonomous Car Ongoing Design
    All Google divisions were new to using Autodesk Alias and VRED when we first started working with them in 2014 so Linkage worked with all the users to present the merits and values of using these tools in pre-sales meetings, working with the Autodesk Named Account Rep and his team. Specifically, the Waymo division needed to be up-and-running ASAP. Linkage provided a complete package of software, training and services to fast-track their use of these tools.
    Linkage Provides Complete Design Solution for Rivian Automotive
    Linkage has been working with Rivian Automotive for the past four (4) years by providing product design and transportation software and services that include Autodesk's Alias and VRED solutions for 3D digital content creation and digital visualization. Initially, Rivian was a startup so they were challenged by not having enough available funds to purchase the Autodesk subscriptions they needed to get their work done.
    Fast Design Launch for Nikola Motors
    Nikola Motors was in a truly unique situation as they had only two people on staff when they launched in 2015: their founder, Trevor Milton and a designer, Steve Jennes. I supported Steve 15 years ago when he worked at Isuzu Motors so he knew to call me to ask for our help. Steve had to design and digitally build the initial electric semi-truck concept in less than 30 days. He was very nervous about taking on these responsibilities as his Alias 3D modeling skills were rusty.
