After working with the mining industry in Arizona for years, we have finally gotten around to joining the two professional groups that work with the industry: Arizona Mining & Industry Get our Support, better known as AMIGOS, and the Arizona Mining Association. We are excited about being able to contribute more to the Arizona mining community through these two groups.
Mining is still a dominant industry in the state, especially copper mining with the state providing 68% of the copper produced in the US in 2011. PADT has supplied software and hardware to both large multinational mining companies, equipment suppliers, and small consultants. We have also provide simulation of mining processes and airflow in mines to several companies. With the addition of Flownex to our product and services offering, our involvement with the industry has grown even more.
But, to be honest, by far and away the coolest part of being involved with mining in all of the states we work in is when we get to go visit a mine, or get to look up close at the huge equipment our customers make. This is some cool engineering. We plan on doing visiting new mines and exploring more equipment as we get more involved with these groups.
