Sudbury’s role as a significant hub for mining expertise and technology just got bigger.
Commit Works, an Australian mining software company, has announced it is expanding into North America by opening new offices in Sudbury.
“Commit Works chose Sudbury for its vital role as a technology and innovation hub for the global mining industry. With more than a dozen mines within a 250km radius, Sudbury is less than four hours from Toronto, which is home to some of largest mining companies’ headquarters. With the international mining industry undergoing significant technological transformation, Sudbury is poised to become the centre of digital development in mining,” said a company news release.
The company said CEO Paul Moynagh sees the expansion as an opportunity to create positive impacts abroad, as Commit Works looks to grow its team and recruit North American experts.
“We’re excited to share our journey with some of the brightest minds in technology and mining, and we welcome the opportunity to develop the economy in the area by working with the local community,” said Moynagh.
The announcement follows two new appointments in the region: Joseph Gladu joins Commit Works as Vice President for North America and Derek Polano steps into the role of Adoption and Results Manager.
