Under the new strategic partnership, A-Plant hire centres will offer Topcon’s machine control systems as well as site surveying equipment.
A-Plant has been providing Topcon survey kits from its Survey Hire Express division for the past 18 months. With addition of Topcon’s machine control systems, customers can now use A-Plant as a single supply source for site survey, setting out and machine control instrumentation.
Topcon channel development manager Simon Crowhen said: “It’s a logical progression for A-Plant’s customers to be able to hire our survey and machine control instruments from one place. This includes our 3D GPS machine control for dozers and excavators, as well as base station hire. As the partnership grows, more will be added to the range available via
Ashley Mills, business development manager for A-Plant’s Survey Hire Express, said: “We’ve invested heavily in establishing first a survey division and then extending this to include machine control systems. Topcon is a very well established name in site instrumentation equipment; highly regarded for the quality of its products and for the level of site support the company provides. It made perfect sense to establish a strategic partnership with Topcon.”
