Symboticware Inc., a supplier of standardized information-based technology designed to enhance productivity, profitability and safety through data management solutions, has announced the opening of its Tucson, Ariz.-based U.S./Mexico headquarters.
Justin Johnsen, VP North America, will lead the team from the Tucson offices, as they focus on collaborating with regional customers on asset reliability services to include criticality analysis, failure mode analysis, condition-based maintenance and performance metrics.
The company said it plans to grow the office rapidly with the hiring of 20 high-tech professionals over the next five years.
“As a key regional mining corridor, Tucson, Arizona, is what Sudbury is to Ontario,” said Kirk Petroski, president and CEO of Symboticware, based in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. “When our first offices opened there in 2008, our focus has been on the development and advancement of technology for the mining industry. We are proud to expand our services into the United States and Mexico through our Tucson office.”
The company joins several mining technology firms that have recently decided to call Tucson home, including Caterpillar, Modular Mining Systems and Hexagon Mining.
