Auckland-based Actronic produces the Loadrite weighing system for wheel loaders, excavators, conveyors and waste collection vehicles.

Loadrite extends Trimble’s Connected Site portfolio by adding information about weight as well as positioning and usage data.

“The acquisition of Actronic Technologies empowers machine operators, foremen, supervisors and project managers to understand machine performance and progress across the entire site within the aggregate, construction, mining and waste industries,” said Roz Buick, vice president and general manager of Trimble’s Heavy Civil Construction Division. “Loadrite weighing systems expand the richness of the Connected Site information we collect from machines and complement the productivity and reporting capabilities we already provide our customers.”

The price paid by Trimble for the privately held company was not disclosed.
