JOHNSTON, R.I. (AP) - Dassault Systemes has officially opened its new offices in Johnston after relocating from Providence.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1wyF3iR ) that about 345 people will be employed at Dassault Systemes SIMULIA, which moved into the former FM Global building on Atwood Avenue. The building is undergoing a $60 million reconstruction into a multi-tenant office complex.

SIMULIA, a part of Dassault Systemes that delivers simulation applications to businesses, is the first tenant. The newspaper reports it has 90,000 square feet of space in the approximately 340,000-square-foot building.

It had operated previously out of offices in the Olneyville section of Providence. Its parent is the French software company Dassault.

Company officials and Gov. Lincoln Chafee marked the opening on Tuesday.
