Press Release

CADLock Is Closing

Apple Creek, Ohio, November 18, 2015 -- CADLock, Inc. is closing most business operations by the end of 2015. New software sales have stopped effective November 15. The CADLock web site at and minimal email customer support will remain operational for an undertermined amount of time.

It has been almost exactly 20 years since we formed in 1996. In that time, our CADVault source code has evolved over hundreds of thousands of man hours and no small amount of blood, sweat, and tears. The result is a product that includes many innovative, unique, and advanced technologies that demands increasing resources to manage, market, and support.

In addition, our engineering and support teams maintain active commercial AutoCAD licenses for all versions of AutoCAD that we support. These internal software license expenses have been rising steadily. Unfortunately, our sales have not. Therefore we've decided to cease further software development immediately, while we continue for the foreseeable future to maintain a minimal support presence.

We would like to thank our customers and partners for their loyalty and business over the past 20 years. Thank you, and farewell!
