Arizona Governor Doug Ducey and Mritunjay Singh, CEO and Executive Director of AXISCADES, one of India’s leading technology solutions providers, today announced the company’s expansion into Tucson, Arizona, where it will create hundreds of jobs primarily in mechanical and electrical engineering.The new Tucson operation will expand the company’s ability to provide engineering services to U.S.-based manufacturers, particularly, mining clients in Southern Arizona.
The company has leased office space at 177 North Church Avenue in downtown Tucson. AXISCADES joins name brands such as Caterpillar, Hexagon Mining, Ernst & Young, Tucson Electric Power and Madden Media and others that have expanded operations in Tucson’s core. The company plans to work closely with University of Arizona and ASU in recruiting and training graduates. Key project partners include Arizona Commerce Authority, Pima County, City of Tucson, Tucson Electric Power and Sun Corridor Inc.
“This is a big win for Tucson and the entire region,” said Governor Doug Ducey. “Two years ago, we welcomed Caterpillar’s surface mining and technology division to Southern Arizona. Since then, Caterpillar's significant investment has created a ripple effect throughout the community and the state. This is evidenced by the expansion of one of their key suppliers, AXISCADES. The AXISCADES expansion will bring new opportunity and jobs for our citizens."
"This is another important benefit of Caterpillar's coming to Tucson: one of its major vendors is moving here, too,” said Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild. “Both Caterpillar and AXISCADES add depth and breadth--and well-paying jobs--to Tucson's mining technology industry sector. We look forward to making the folks at AXISCADES welcome in Tucson."
“The hits just keep on coming. With AXISCADES joining Caterpillar and Hexagon downtown, along with other firms like Modular Mining Systems in town, plus the UA’s exceptional mining engineering college, we may have to change Tucson’s nickname from the Old Pueblo to the Mining Technology Capital of the World,” said Pima County Supervisor Sharon Bronson. “I’m thrilled to welcome AXISCADES to town and wish them great success.”
"The expansion of AXISCADES creates new opportunities for engineers in Southern Arizona, high-paying positions which are key to growing Arizona's economy," said Sandra Watson, President & CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. "We welcome AXISCADES to Tucson and thank them for choosing Arizona. We also thank the City of Tucson, Pima County and Sun Corridor Inc. who have all been excellent partners in making this expansion possible." About AXISCADES:
