About Us

Fluids & C°

Fluids & C° was founded in 2015 by Vincent Soumoy on the idea of helping North American companies in their simulation.

Canadian Permanent Resident but Franco-Belgian nationality physicist, specialized in fluid mechanics, Diploma Course of the Von Karman Institute in 1987, Vincent worked since more than 25 years in the simulation domain, namely in fluids (CFD).

Based in Montreal, we are providing services and distributing software in various area, namely CAE (FEA, CFD, MBD…) but also Process and Data Management, Artificial Intelligence and Customer Relationship Management (CRM).

Our team is made up entirely of specialists with more than 25 years of experience for some of them.
Fluids & C° is willing to apply ethical rules for any business practice.

President Fluids & C°

Franco-Belgian nationality physicist, specialized in fluid mechanics, Diploma Course of the Von Karman Institute in 1987, Vincent worked since more than 25 years in the simulation domain, namely in CFD.

Initially Research and Application Engineer in the industry, he wrote theoretical & empirical bibliographies, set up a multiphase flow software, validated results with experiments, and drew conclusions in an industrial pollutants study or in coating phenomena. He collaborated with international laboratories and participated in seminars and congresses.

He later moved to various software editors, as account manager, following SME and main accounts in Europe from cold calling and prospection, to standard and specific proposal elaboration.

He finally became Sales Manager of companies, the first one in Europe and the second in North America, set up the whole sales activity (markets sectors, new products, CRM…). Covered end-to-end sales processes from analyzing client needs, creating tailored proposals, to managing sales/marketing/quality teams. He was also in charge of channel partner networks.

Vincent was to music and more particularly vocals interested, he sang and conducted various chords, with concerts in Europe and North America.

Astrid Soumoy

Polytechnique Student and Administrator Fluids & Co

Even if quite young, Astrid already has some experience in Artificial Intelligence and simulation.

Student in Software engineering at Polytechnique Montreal, she is also laboratory teacher in computers microarchitecture.

She was honored in 2018 by the prize for the best realization of a functional robot, built and programmed with her team. She is developing this year an interactive web application.

She participated in 2017 to a summer school on artificial intelligence (SUMMERIA) in Lyon (FR), and early in 2019 to a programming competition about smart city (Hackatown).

This summer 2019, she worked as a trainee with our partner Esteco in Trieste. Being part of the Research and Development team during 4 months, she participated to the development of a mobile application for a European project and to the programmation of a visualization and data management web application. Her team obtained the first place of the Venture Days, Coding a basketball mobile application, during a three-day competition.

NAFEMS is the International Association for the Engineering Modelling, Analysis and Simulation Community. They are a not-for-profit organisation which was established in 1983.

They focus on the practical application of numerical engineering simulation techniques such the Finite Element Method for Structural Analysis, Computational Fluid Dynamics, and Multibody Simulation. In addition to end users from all industry sectors, our stakeholders include technology providers, researchers and academics.

The Computational Fluid Dynamics Working Group was founded in 1995 with the objective to promote the safe and reliable use of Computational Fluid Dynamics and to provide guidance and information for CFD users of all levels. The work of the group is aimed at encouraging and supporting the increasing application of Computational Fluid Dynamics in industry and the expansion of applications and situations to which it is applied.

Vincent Soumoy is member of the NAFEMS CFD Working Group since 2009.


Promotes networking and business development between different organizations, professional associations, business people and companies with links and commercial or economic interests with Belgium, Quebec and Canada.

The CABQ makes its know-how available to its members its know-how, its competences and its network. What for? To inform and support Quebec and Belgian companies that have made the choice to leave their borders.

The CABQ was established in Quebec in 2005. It works to promote economic relations between Belgium and Quebec and contribute to the development of actions supported mostly by Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT), the Walloon Agency for export and foreign investment in Montreal (AWEX), Brussels Invest & Export and the Quebec Ministry of economy, science and innovation (MEI).

The Cercle d'affaires Belgique-Québec has another mission to facilitate the integration and development of Belgian companies wishing to settle in Quebec. and more broadly, in Canada.
