CAE Mining opens new office in Mexico to be closer to customers

Brisbane, Australia - March 5, 2013  - CAE Mining opened a new office this week in Zacatecas, Mexico to be closer to its local customers. It is the 13th CAE Mining location worldwide and the first in Mexico.

CAE Mining President Damian McKay stated, "This office extends our commitment to Mexico where we have a strong customer base. This strategy of being close to the customers wherever they may be globally has secured CAE's reputation for strong client relationships and quality service."

CAE Mining provides software, simulation and training solutions for geology, mine planning and operations. The company offers a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for each phase of the mine planning cycle, all of which are engineered, implemented and supported by specialist teams of mining professionals. The range of core offerings, which are based on mine optimization software tools and include simulation and modelling, are integrated with adjacent offerings in consulting and training.

With a rich history in mining, Mexico continues to stand as one of the world's largest producers of minerals. An increasing number of companies in this region are adopting new and innovative technologies to improve mine site safety conditions and significantly increase efficiency and productivity. This reality coupled with CAE Mining's expanding customer base in Mexico, prompted the company to establish its presence in Zacatecas, with support staff located in Torreon.

CAE has been doing business in Mexico for 35 years. In 2012, CAE opened the first business jet training centre in Mexico, offering simulation-based training.
