Epiroc has agreed to acquire Yieldpoint Inc., a Canadian company that provides ground support solutions that strengthen safety for mining and civil engineering applications.

Yieldpoint is based in Kingston, Ontario, and has about 10 employees. The company designs, manufactures, and sells digital geotechnical instruments, and has customers worldwide. The products, which include ground movement sensors and telemetry solutions, are primarily used for underground mining, tunnelling, and civil construction applications. Yieldpoint's solutions help digitalize the ground support and create a safer working environment.

"Proper ground support is crucial to safe mining and infrastructure operations. Yieldpoint's smart and robust monitoring solutions complement our ground support offering well, and expand our portfolio of digital solutions," says Helena Hedblom, Epiroc's president and CEO. "Together we will offer high-tech ground support solutions that allow customers to operate in a safer environment and spend more time focusing on their operations. We look forward to welcoming the experienced and professional Yieldpoint team to Epiroc."

The acquisition is expected to be completed towards the end of the second quarter of 2024.
