Epiroc has relocated its U.S. headquarters in Colorado from Commerce City to Broomfield. Located within the Denver metropolitan area, the company will be in a tech corridor known as the Rocky Mountain Silicon Valley.
The company said the move to a technology hub is a natural one as it is a global firm that provides drill rigs, rock excavation and construction equipment and tools, along with service products and solutions. It focuses on delivering technology solutions for automation and interoperability.
Broomfield is situated halfway between downtown Denver and Boulder in the U.S. Highway 36 technology corridor of the northwest Denver metro area. The new location is alongside notable neighbors from the technology, manufacturing and packaging sectors.
The company said it expects the relocation to help with employee recruitment, provide better access to amenities, and offer transportation efficiency for more than 70 people who work at the location.
“The city of Broomfield is a perfect fit for Epiroc,” said Jon Torpy, president and general manager of Epiroc USA LLC. “While our company dedicates efforts to innovation and new developments in autonomous mining, teleremote drilling and interoperability, it is ideal for us to join a community that embodies growth and collaboration. The move will only help us become a better partner for our customers.”
