Hexagon opens new mining headquarters in Tucson, Arizona

Office to showcase rich possibilities of a smarter, safer, fully connected mine

     
 

TUCSON, ARIZONA, JULY 12, 2018 - Hexagon‘s Mining division has opened its North American headquarters in the emerging technology hub of downtown Tucson, Arizona. The move from the city’s outskirts to the newly built and designed Hexagon building at City Park, 40 East Congress Street, heralds a new era for the company.

Not only does it solidify plans to add 120 jobs over the next five years, it thrusts the company into a thriving, pedestrian-friendly city center. Bike paths, the street car, hotels and recreation are all steps away. The five-storey building is both contemporary and sleek, including open floor plans, a rooftop patio, restaurants, and coffee shop. Wi-Fi and digital signage feature throughout Hexagon‘s top three floors, which comprise private offices, workspace banks, communal areas to meet and brainstorm, a 400-person auditorium and sound-proof rooms for solo work.

Hexagon brings the digital mine to visitors in its fifth-floor Experience Center, an interactive showcase of life-of-mine solutions. Augmented reality, virtual reality, and truck cabin simulation are just some of the Center’s features, which employ hands-on hardware and software to fully immerse  visitors into the modern operation. The space includes a training center and event facility with full broadcast capabilities.

“Downtown Tucson is the ideal location for a North American headquarters of a global technology company,“ said Mining division President, Josh Weiss. “It’s highly attractive for millennial talent from universities and abroad. Better yet, as a training center for customers, this location allows us to fully expose the rich possibilities of smarter, safer, fully connected mine.“

Tucson Mayor, Jonathan Rothschild, lauded Hexagon’s move: "Bringing a tech company headquarters to a new downtown building is a double win for Tucson," said Rothschild. "Hexagon will be part of Tucson's emerging downtown technology hub."

Today‘s move downtown coincides with the Mining division’s opening of a new state of the art production and research facility near Tucson Airport. The facility will enable Hexagon to expand production capacity, improve product quality and enhance research capabilities.
