Helsinki, Finland: Ashtech teamed up with GeoSam Oy, a newly-formed Finnish distributor of global positioning and surveying equipment, to represent Ashtech machine control, GIS, GNSS and GPS products. Through this Finnish partner, Ashtech aims to build a strong distribution channel in the Scandinavian countries.
“GeoSam Oy has teamed with Ashtech because the Ashtech brand and its heritage, Magellan and Thales, are well-known and respected in Finland,” said Jukka Lindstrom, GeoSam Oy Manager and Director. “The Finnish user is very sophisticated, and the market has a large number of network RTK customers, which is a good fit for Ashtech solutions,” Lindstrom noted.
“GeoSam Oy personnel are highly experienced in machine control solutions, land survey and construction markets,” said Ashtech EMEA Sales Director, Jean-Marc Ferre. “We expect that GeoSam’s strong expertise and their commitment to fielding a dedicated Ashtech sales and support team will very soon make GeoSam Oy and Ashtech a strong leader in the Finnish market,” Ferre added.
GeoSam Oy will market the Ashtech MobileMapper 100, the ProMark 100/200/500 series and the ProFlex product series.
