US: In a bid to meet customer requirements holistically, Topcon Positioning Group is opening up Topcon Solutions Stores in the United States. These outlets will serve the market with product sales, service and support for the construction, surveying, mapping and related industries. But, it should be noted that Topcon will continue to market its products through its independent distribution channels as well.
The Topcon Solutions Stores will consist of current Topcon-owned distributors Positioning Solutions Company (PSC), Bunce Positioning, Mid-Atlantic Positioning Systems (MAPS), New England Positioning (NEPS), and Productivity Products and Services (PPS) as well as their branch locations. The ten Topcon Solutions stores will be located in Berlin, Conn., Carol Stream, Ill., Indianapolis, Ind., Annapolis Junction, Md., Stow, Mass., Niles, Mich., St. Louis, Mo., Concord, N.H., Saxonburg, Pa., and Waukesha, Wis.
“With the tremendous advancement in positioning technology and the accelerated rate of adoption of enterprise-wide solutions throughout the construction and surveying industries, it is time for us to take the lead in providing a truly holistic approach for meeting the needs of our customers,” said Jim Paetz, Topcon executive vice president for retail operations.
“It is our desire to make it easy for our customers — whether they need an instrument such as a laser or total station, or fleet-wide automation and telematics solutions — to find a local partner that can meet all of their positioning needs,” he said. “We believe that is the only way to ensure the seamless integration and to maximize the benefits of investing in positioning technology.”
Jerry Bickner, president of Positioning Solutions Company, added, “We have always been dedicated to providing the very best experience for our customers. Now, as part of Topcon Solutions, we have enhanced abilities to serve the needs of our customers across all phases of a project over a much wider geographic area.”
