CIS Ionic rebranded as Variant Mining Technologies

By: Northern Ontario Business staff

CIS Ionic Mining Systems, the joint venture company formed by Carrier Industrial Supply (CIS) and Ionic Engineering, has been formally rebranded as Variant Mining Technologies.

Variant Mining Technologies manufactures mining material handling solutions for the world’s leading mining operations. The customer list includes Vale, Xstrata, Kirkland Lake Gold, Aurico, Lac Des Isles and DeBeers. The company has been in operation for seven years and has facilities in Chelmsford, just outside of Sudbury. The product line includes a range of chutes, arc gates as well as measuring boxes and vibratory feeding systems.

The rebranding was a result of the company’s growth in the marketplace. Its ability to stand alone as an entity is a result of the company’s reputation of exceeding customers’ expectations and innovative designs. The company also specializes in engineering and manufacturing customized solutions to meet customer requirements.

"We are delighted to have our own identity,” said Ryan Karns, operations manager of Variant, in a news release. “We look forward to building our brand to create a leading Canadian mining material handling technology company. I am very proud of our success and the exceptional value proposition we have created for our customers."
