Lim Geomatics Inc. goes west with a new office in Calgary

 

April 10, 2018, Calgary, AB – As part of the company’s 12‐year evolution and strategic growth plan, Lim Geomatics Inc. is heading west to Calgary, Alberta.

“We have been doing business in Alberta and British Columbia for a number of years, with some of our key clients in the area,” says Dr. Kevin Lim, President and CTO, Lim Geomatics. “The decision to open a physical presence in Western Canada makes absolute sense with our growth plan.”

Lim Geomatics works on projects and with clients across the two provinces in the agriculture, forestry and oil and gas industries. With this expansion, the technology firm will create a software development group based in Calgary that will work in tandem with the rest of the team at the company’s head office in Ottawa, Ontario.

“This is a very exciting time for us,” says Dr. Lim. “We are looking forward to continue working with our current clients and bringing on additional projects in new business verticals.”

Alberta and British Columbia share a rich history of responsible resource development, whether that’s in farming, forestry or oil and gas extraction. Lim Geomatics has unrivalled experience and expertise in creating decision‐support tools for the natural resources sector. The firm has developed a suite of sought‐after web, mobile and desktop applications that introduce powerful geospatial capability into every stage of forestry operations, from strategic planning to harvesting to hauling wood to the mill.

Lim Geomatics is also a trusted advisor and ally for companies working in diverse fields and anticipates tapping into the inherent entrepreneurial spirit of Canada’s western provinces. With this new office in Calgary, Lim Geomatics looks forward to fostering new relationships with organizations curious about the transformative potential of geospatial technology.
