Today, we are excited to announce that Snowden has been acquired by Datamine, a wholly owned subsidiary of Vela Software, an operating group of Constellation Software (TSX: CSU).
We are pleased to share that the Snowden brand will be retained. We are dedicated to maintaining consistent high levels of expertise and support that you have come to expect from Snowden. Please continue to use the same communications channels to connect with the team.
Being part of the Datamine group will provide long term benefits for Snowden, 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 deep software expertise.
“Snowden has a proud 33 year history, evolving from a geological consulting company to a diversified advisory consulting, software and training business,” said Tarrant Elkington, Global Manager, Snowden. “This acquisition marks the next step on our growth journey. I am pleased that the Snowden brand will continue. The software expertise and global footprint of Datamine offers tremendous opportunities for the growth of our business and to improve the experience of our clients. For example, we will now be able to offer in-country support to our Supervisor clients in South America. And we can easily, and cost-effectively expand our consulting business to other countries. This is a great day for our business, and our people, and we look forward to exploring the synergies that Datamine offer.”
John Bailey, Executive General Manager at Datamine, said “We are excited to acquire the Snowden business which aligns closely with our existing offering to the mining industry. Snowden has a strong, expert brand with a wealth of experience, and has developed industry-leading products that complement Datamine’s software portfolio”.
We look forward to sharing more exciting developments with you over the coming months.
