Company History and Organization

Codeware was founded in 1983 in Ontario, Canada. We opened our first U.S. office in 1993. We currently have offices in Sarasota, Florida and Austin, Texas. Codeware’s founder, Les M. Bildy, P. Eng., has served as President since 1983.

Engineering is at the core of Codeware. Our philosophy is that very specialized knowledge is needed to properly interpret and program the rules of the ASME Code. That’s why Codeware’s programming team is comprised primarily of Mechanical Engineers who are also Software Developers. It is common to see members of our software development team gathered around a white board debating the engineering merits of an approach before implementing it in COMPRESSINSPECT or Shopfloor.

Codeware’s salaried Account Managers and Sales Engineers, not commission based distributors or sales reps, are ready to assist with your software evaluation and answer any licensing questions. Account Management and Support Team Members work closely with clients to investigate and resolve each question raised. IT Support personnel are here to answer installation and networking questions. Codeware’s experienced Engineers are available to explain our interpretation of the ASME Code rules as implemented in the software. Codeware does not outsource COMPRESS, INSPECT or Shopfloor programming, client support or client services.


Our engineering software is used in various industries including oil and gas, petrochemicals, water treatment, food production, transportation and biofuels. Codeware directly supplies software to Clients in Over 65 Countries.
