Modular Mining, a provider of real-time computer-based mine management solutions, has unveiled its new Customer Experience Centre (CEC). Located in the company’s corporate headquarters in Tucson, Arizona (USA) the CEC’s opening coincides with Modular Mining’s 40th anniversary and celebrates the company’s continued growth and positive trajectory in the mining sector.
The opening and facility tour were attended were local elected and public officials, community leaders, local mining customers, representatives of Modular Mining’s parent company Komatsu, and business partners.
“Our new Customer Experience Centre is designed to showcase how mine management solutions can improve the safety, efficiency, and productivity of mining operations, and help our customers do so sustainably,” said Jorge Mascena, President and CEO, Modular Mining.
“Today’s announcement marks our third major renovation project in 6 years at this facility. Tucson is evolving into a key mining technology hub, and this expansion demonstrates our commitment to leading this transformation as a long-term member of this community,” he concluded.
The expansion of the CEC comes on the successes of other recent company expansions in Tucson. Komatsu’s Autonomous Haulage Systems (AHS) Centre of Excellence (CoE) opened in June 2019, where a cross-functional team of personnel from both Komatsu and Modular Mining work together under the Komatsu umbrella to develop, sell, and support the AHS.
In 2014, Modular Mining expanded its corporate campus to include a building dedicated to the company’s research and development. That same year, Komatsu opened its Arizona Proving Grounds in Sahuarita, Arizona; a 660 acre facility which is also largely used for research and development of Komatsu mining equipment and testing Modular Mining’s technologies.
