Mincom was bought out by ABB in May 2011.
Known for being a pioneer in enterprise software such as Ellipse, Mincom was an industry leader.
Extract from the Australian Mining Journal:
Mincom, the biggest fish in Australian mining software waters and a major player internationally, was recently swallowed by the leviathan ABB Group. Mike Foley spoke with Mincom’s chief strategy officer, Jennifer Tejada, to find out what the future holds.
n 1979 the Mincom story started with its founder David Merson, who went on to hold the chief executive position for the next 21 years. Just like software peer Maptek, Mincom too felt the benevolent touch of the Utah Development Company in its nascent years. Utah provided its first major contract – for facilities management software and services.
Mincom quickly set up shop internationally, first in Atlanta, Georgia in 1985 and then in Santiago, Chile in 1992. Geographic expansion was concurrent with new services that included management and maintenance systems for the defence, infrastructure, energy, oil and gas industries.
