HiQ lands new contract and ramps up partnership with Epiroc

HiQ lands new contract to develop new software for global mining and infrastructure machinery manufacturer Epiroc.
"We're really excited about this deal. Epiroc is a world-leading manufacturer for the mining industry and like us, innovation is at the top of their agenda. We're very familiar with this kind of software development, it's a core part of our business. But I think our work with Epiroc clearly boosts Sweden's competitive edges for heavy industry," says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.

At the same time, like all industries in the Nordics, the challenge is to increase efficiency both sustainably and safely. New technologies like autonomous vehicles, remote control and battery operation are important to future development. Swedish company Epiroc is a leading global productivity partner to the mining and infrastructure industry, developing drilling rigs, and mining and construction equipment with a strong focus on innovation and digital development.

“We’ve been working with Epiroc for many years, and I’m both happy and proud that we’re now increasing our collaboration further. It’s proof that we deliver high quality,” says Anders Nilsson, Managing Director of HiQ Mälardalen.

Epiroc and HiQ are now increasing their software development collaboration. In addition to previous undertakings, HiQ is delivering two complete development teams to Epiroc’s development site in Örebro. The teams will focus on developing software for embedded systems in mining machines used both above and below ground.

“I’m really pleased about this collaboration. HiQ’s ability to quickly deliver two entire development teams was crucial to this deal and will enable us to maintain our high pace of development. It will help us take advantage of today’s rapid technology development,” says Jörgen Appelgren, VP of Automation & Technology Products at Epiroc.
