Innovative mining software developer, Maptek, has established an office in New Delhi to service the Indian mining market.

India has a wealth of natural resources for internal consumption and export, with significant areas yet to be fully explored. The current challenge for the mining industry is to assess their potential to meet the demand for growth.

"Maptek products can help meet the demand by miners for better technical capability. And since we always deliver support and supplier interaction where it’s needed, this is a great opportunity for Maptek to expand into India," said Maptek general manager, Peter Johnson.

Experienced Indian staff have undertaken intensive training in Australia to become familiar with Maptek products and service delivery standards.

"Maptek has the best products, and we are committed to delivering the best technical support and services for our customers in all regions," said Johnson.

"Considering the industrial growth and urbanisation of India, we know this is a favourable time to offer our solutions. We can do that better with a local presence."

Maptek develops Vulcan mine planning and geological modelling software, I-Site 3D laser imaging systems and MineSuite production management information systems. Dedicated product support and expert consulting services ensure companies get value for their investment.

Maptek’s new office, inaugurated during the company’s 30th anniversary year, builds on a global network in Australasia, North and South America, Africa and Europe.
