We are excited to announce that Centric Mining Systems has been acquired by Datamine, a wholly owned subsidiary of Vela Software, an operating group of Constellation Software (TSX: CSU).

Centric Mining Systems will continue to be led by founder and CEO Chris Novak, who established the business in 1998. In this time the company has grown from a 1-person start-up to a global company with customers in over 15 countries and established a market presence in 6 continents.
