Centric Mining Systems acquired by Datamine

Centric Mining Systems has been acquired by Datamine, the wholly owned subsidiary of Vela Software, an operating group of Constellation Software. Centric Mining Systems will remain as an independent business under the Datamine umbrella and retain the Centric brand. Centric stated: “We will continue to work closely with our customers maintaining the consistent high levels of expertise and service that you have come to expect from us. Please continue to use the same communication channels to connect with the team.”

The company said that being part of the Datamine group “will provide long-term benefits for Centric, our staff and customers. We will have the opportunity to strengthen and grow our business by leveraging resources including an office network across 20 countries, and profound software and mining expertise.”

“Centric and Datamine share a common vision to provide the mining industry with best-in-class technology that pushes them to the forefront of digital innovation” said Chris Novak, CEO of Centric Mining Systems. “We look forward to joining forces and with access to Datamine’s’ resources, we will have the opportunity to expand our geographic footprint while continuing to provide our customers with industry leading, full-service mine information management solutions. This is a great day for our business, and our people, and we look forward to exploring the synergies that Datamine offer.”

Dylan Webb, CEO at Datamine, said “This acquisition is another exciting addition to the Datamine group. We welcome the Centric team and customer base and look forward to the evolution and innovation in both of our businesses as a result of this acquisition.”

Established in 1998, Centric Mining Systems grew from a 1-person start-up to a global company with customers in over 15 countries and a market presence in 6 continents. “Our collective experience and obsession for mining has driven us to develop smarter systems – ones that shift our industry forward. We saw the need for more effective software that could turn mining data into transformative knowledge; useful information needed to make informed decisions, get measurable results, and sharpen your company’s competitive edge.”
