ARANZ Geo has a new Christchurch headquarters two years and two months after a series of earthquakes hit the city.

The new R&D centre, the fifth move for the company since the quakes, was officially opened by Science and Innovation Minister Hon Steven Joyce last week.

The company, who design and develop their Leapfrog 3D geological modelling solutions for the mining, hydrogeology and geothermal industries, says the move is a significant step for the company.

“Today is a very special day for the company," Shaun Maloney, chief executive ARANZ Geo said at the time.

"I’m tremendously proud of the way the team has continued to focus on delivering fantastic products to customers around the world despite some challenging conditions.

"It’s terrific to finally have a new permanent base and for the team to be together once again.

“Through the earthquakes we continued to develop our Leapfrog software for clients worldwide.

"We’ve also managed to attract some really skilled people including PhD graduates, mathematicians and software engineers. We need to keep building the team as we’re growing quickly.”

With a 50-strong Christchurch based team, ARANZ Geo has a further 35 staff located across a network of local support offices including Canada, United States of America, Peru, Chile, United Kingdom, Denmark, Turkey, South Africa, and Australia.
