Hexagon aims to change mining view

The technology displays in Hexagon’s ‘Zone’ at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas offered tantalising glimpses at the future of industries such as agriculture, construction, power generation and manufacturing. Mining sat, geospatially speaking, in the heart of this year’s display. Business segment leaders hope it can become the star of the show.

A Swedish IT enterprise with a market value this week of about US$13.3 billion, Hexagon has been a busy gatherer accumulator of companies under the leadership of Ola Rollén over the past six years.
