Caelynx serves leading innovators in automotive, aerospace, life sciences and other industries. Our mission is to develop long term relationships with our customers by sharing our expertise and providing excellent service.



Caelynx was founded in 2005 by President and Chief Engineer, Joe Formicola. We’re passionate about applying our expertise in Computer Aided Engineering (CAE), using advanced Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methods to predict product performance. Caelynx has particular expertise in developing and applying advanced analysis methodologies in automotive, aerospace, life science and other industries. We are skilled at material characterization and correlation with physical testing.

In 2008 we opened our European office in Craiova, Romania. Our managing partner in Romania, Stephan Castravete, completed his Ph.D. in at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. After working at our HQ in Ann Arbor for a couple of years, Stefan returned home to continue the Caelynx reputation for excellent engineering on another continent.

In 2011, Caelynx became a reseller of Dassault Systemès software and FEMFAT fatigue software. Since that time, we have helped dozens of customers across many different industries successfully implement simulation capability in-house. Most of these implementations included some combination of: sizing and configuration; installation; training; mentoring; technology transfer and ongoing support.

In 2014, we moved into our current home across from the train station in Ann Arbor.
