Jim Gregory, company president explains, “With the addition of the extensive laser product line, Accupoint is now a full Trimble dealer. “We have the answers for anyone who asks a positioning question–– from the guy hanging sheetrock to the contractor controlling heavy equipment to the company requiring software to map the ocean’s bottom. “These products cover all aspects of construction and surveying as well as the marine industry.” He continues, “I chose the Trimble line based on the company’s leading-edge technology, position in the marketplace, and focus on the future.”
At age 14, Jim got his first job in the business cutting wooden stakes. Since then he has worked in all areas of distribution forming Artic Survey Instruments with his vice president, Otto Staengle in 1986. The company’s name was changed to Accupoint in 1994.
Accupoint is a factory authorized, Trimble repair facility and employs two certified machine control system technicians for on-site installations.
