Global mining technology services giant, Swedish Hexagon AB, has outed itself as a potential purchaser of local mining innovators, backing it up with a commitment to lease 1,200sqm in Primewest’s Australia Place.
Hexagon, a global information technology provider, has a Perth presence at 61 King Street, levels one and two, in the WD&HO Wills building on the corner of Milligan and Murray streets and in West Leederville. Hexagon-Mining General Manager Perth; Phil Edmiston said the three leases were scheduled to expire within months.
Sheffield Property’s Roly Egerton-Warburton said Hexagon Mining, which plans to move into its new space on level six of Australia Place, at 15-17 William Street in March, was attracted by the fact that the space was ready to go. It has signed a seven-year lease. Primewest, which owns the building, had fitted out the floor in advance.
“This is a drawcard for tenants, as it allows them to focus on their business rather than be distracted (by a fitout).” Mr Egerton-Warburton said.
