About us

Where we have come from, and where we are going.

Our Story

Welcome to Modena Technologies – your trusted design technology partner.

Modena Technologies, along with the other member companies of the Modena Group, is a family-owned and run enterprise. Our roots lie in Modena, the Northern Italian town (and our family name) famous for its food culture, its balsamic vinegar and of course, for being the birthplace of Enzo Ferrari, the founder of the racing and sport car manufacturer – Ferrari.

By contrast, our offices, the Modena Design Centre, nestle quietly in the magnificent Constantia valley outside of Cape Town, South Africa. A wine-making region since 1685, the valley is known for its excellent viniculture, in particular for its Grand Constance sweet wine, so much a favourite of Napolean Bonaparte, that he maintained a standing order of 30 bottles a month. As a company we draw inspiration from both locations.

What we do

We at Modena Technologies provide consulting services, hardware and software in the Architecture Engineering and Construction (AEC); as well as the Product Design, Manufacturing and Mining Industries.

You’re welcome to take a moment to read more about our full range of services, consulting and training offerings, as well as hardware and software products available for purchase.

How we do it

As Autodesk’s largest partner on the African continent, with more than 70 highly-skilled personnel across branches, Modena Technologies has the combined expertise and experience to analyse needs, then recommend, implement and support the world’s leading design technology solutions. We have been serving our clients throughout the Western Cape, and along with our other Modena branches, the rest of Southern Africa for over 20 years.

Being an Autodesk Gold partner, means that we maintain and exceed a global level standard of excellence and are proud recipients of multiple Autodesk Platinum Club Awards.

Why we do it

We are passionate about technology and people. We look toward the future and see opportunities in all challenges ahead. But more than that, we delight in helping our customers grow their opportunities, win more deals and ultimately succeed; because we know that their success is our success too.

What about COVID-19?

It’s a strange new world we live in. Even before the pandemic, we had ambitious plans to expand our services abroad. This meant that our focus on virtual training and consulting allowed us to seamlessly transition to servicing all our clients during the tragic COVID-19 pandemic with very little disruption to operations following the onset of the current pandemic.


International Business

We find that that our fees are very competitive, and believe that companies looking for cost-savings going forward should give them and Modena their consideration.  We believe that we can afford to offer competitive rates as our basic cost base is lower, and as the UK/SA, Pound/Rand exchange rate favours UK operators. Thus, we can (and have) been offering our virtual services at local (South African) rates across the world.

Sadly, we can’t host you at our beautiful training facility at this time, but we’ll keep you posted when things change.

Looking Ahead

We look forward to the future, to the challenges and opportunities that it presents.  Most of all we look forward to helping our clients win more bids, grow their operations, and to succeed, as their success is ultimately ours as well.

Are you ready?

Let’s begin our journey.
