Sudbury-based mining technology company SHYFTinc has appointed a new president to help launch a global expansion.
Tyler Samson, an experienced principal electrical engineer and former manager of mergers and acquisitions at BESTECH (a sister company of SHYFTinc), has been working closely with SHYFTinc founding president Trang Tran-Valade through the transition.
Samson's mandate is to continue building the company, which was founded in May 2018 as a developer of innovative technologies and services for the mining industry. SHYFTinc has assumed responsibility for the projects, services, and offerings already developed by BESTECH, and is working towards the commercialization of new solutions.
Samson said that he will build on the company's success with sales of software licences and support for NRG1-ECO, an energy optimization and ventilation control solution. By supporting new and existing parnterships, he hopes to encourage international growth.
“We have strong relationships with three of the world’s top-10 global mining clients, and we're grateful for their support and feedback on our software and services,” Samson said in a press release.
“True innovation requires collaboration and communication, and with the experience we have gained within Canadian mining operations, we’re preparing to offer support and services in South America.”
SHYFTinc CEO Marc Boudreau said that Samson is a great choice because of his knowledge and expertise in business and mining.
“As SHYFTinc continues to develop and implement industry-leading solutions for the mining industry, Tyler will keep quality and innovation at the forefront,” he said.
Tran-Valade remains with BESTECH as director of strategic innovations. She is also developing a new business and leading technology development through ADMMIT, a fully autonomous inventory management system for the mining industry.
