Datamine announces acquisition of Flairbase
Strategic acquisition continues to strengthen Datamine’s short term planning and production management solution.
Following a successful partnership to distribute the Amine short term mine planning solution, Datamine has today announced the acquisition of Flairbase Inc. The acquisition will allow Datamine to further integrate Amine into its underground planning suite, and commence the distribution of the Flairbase SIMS production planning and reporting system globally.
Based in Montreal, Canada, Flairbase has been providing its flagship software solutions to customers in the Americas since 1993.
Amine is an established, world-leading solution for detailed design, short term planning and survey. Its user-friendly visual interface allows you to manage your drawings, design layouts, evaluate resources, work in 3D or with 2D sections, perform automated surveys, and much more.
The SIMS solution is a mine production management system that keeps track of all your mining activities, equipment, locations, people, and consumables, allowing you to take control of your costs and your resources. Real time transparency and reporting provides mine operators with the essential tools to make informed decisions to optimise short term operational performance.
“We are excited to further strengthen Datamine’s software portfolio for short term planning and operations management. Through our previous distribution partnership, we know that Flairbase has a high quality, committed team. We are excited that the entire team including the founders Gaetan Leonard and James Leung have decided to stay with the business and work even more closely with Datamine to take the Flairbase technology to our global customer base of more than 2000 sites,” said Dylan Webb, Technology and M&A Director at Datamine.
