Revolution Mining Software in Sudbury has been acquired by RPMGlobal, a Brisbane, Australia-headquartered firm that provides mining software solutions, advisory services, and professional development to the mining industry.
RPMGlobal announced the acquisition in a July 9 news release.
Revolution Mining’s flagship product is its Schedule Optimization Tool (SOT), software that helps mining companies with mining plan development, strategy and evaluation in the long-term planning of mines.
The tool, designed to improve a mine’s productivity and profitability, was originally developed from research undertaken by the Mining Innovation, Rehabilitation and Applied Research Corporation (MIRARCO) at Laurentian University.
“The entire Revolution Mining team is so passionate about the solutions we are delivering to the industry, so it was important to us that RPMGlobal also shared our vision and passion, which they clearly do,” said Lorrie Fava, Revolution Mining’s president, in the release.
“To be able to be a part of a company with RPMGlobal’s pedigree and history is a very exciting prospect for the team at Revolution Mining.
“We look forward to joining the RPMGlobal team and are convinced that the Revolution Mining Software product suite will benefit from increased investment and the sales and marketing support that RPMGlobal can offer these products right around the world.”
RPMGlobal said all of Revolution Mining’s employees would be retained with the acquisition.
