PRESS RELEASE: The company stated that 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 centre. The company noted that 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 centre's features, which employ hands-on hardware and software to fully immerse visitors into the modern operation. The space includes a training centre and event facility with full broadcast capabilities.

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

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

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