Auckland-based Optical Services, Wellington-based Trig Instruments and Christchurch-based Position Partners have formed a strategic alliance to offer a broader range of solutions and local expertise to New Zealand industries.
The alliance will see the three companies combine their product lines to offer exclusive distribution of Sokkia surveying instruments, Carlson machine control for mining and landfill applications, MAVinci and Ascending Technologies Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) for aerial mapping, and US Radar Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). Additional solutions include a range of construction lasers and C.Scope cable locators, plus software platforms including Autodesk, MAGNET and Carlson SurvCE.
All products are available for purchase or hire, with the exception of UAS which cannot be hired as they require specialist training for safe operation. Service, training and calibration across all product lines are provided locally by each branch.
“This alliance is great news for New Zealand industries,” said Bob Bent, New Zealand manager for Position Partners. “A greater product range will mean easier access to the latest technology throughout the country, with the added peace of mind that comes with dealing with a local supplier who is on hand to help with support and training.”
Kevin Stevens, managing director for Trig Instruments, added: “What’s really exciting about our strategic alliance is that it allows us to offer new technologies in which each company specialises. Our group buying power results in better pricing, faster delivery, and detailed product knowledge across a number of industries. This enables us to supply everything our customers need, with an unparalleled support network.”
“Supporting customers throughout the North and South Islands is a challenge for any business, no matter where you are based,” said Alex Felgate, Director of Optical Services. “This alliance enables us to provide comprehensive sales, hire, service and calibration support to customers anywhere in New Zealand.”
