LIVERMORE, Calif. – Topcon Positioning Systems’ (TPS) dealer, Position Partners – Australia’s largest distributor of precision positioning systems – has opened its new national headquarters in Melbourne.

The company’s new facilities at 7 Transit Drive, Campbellfield, Victoria were opened by Nobuo Ichiki, Topcon Corporation’s senior manager Positioning Business Unit, and Mark Contino, TPS vice president of product marketing.

“Our new national headquarters are the culmination of a process that began over 18 months ago, when Australia’s independent Topcon dealers decided to join forces and form Position Partners,” said Brian McLoughlin, a founding director of the company.

“As a result of that decision, we now have Australia’s largest and most experienced supplier of precision positioning systems – and we are the world’s second largest distributor of Topcon products.

“We are recognized by our customers as providing the industry’s best – bar none – levels of service, support and product knowledge, backing up their investment in Topcon products and systems – the world’s leading supplier and developer of advanced positioning and machine management systems,” he said.

Position Partners offers:

-- Full sales, service and support operations in every Australian mainland state capital;
-- Industry-leading network of mobile service vehicles;
-- Accredited Topcon service facilities in every branch; and
-- Product knowledge and experience in fitting, servicing and advising on machine control, survey systems, laser products and machine management systems.

“Despite the downturn in the industry, we are continuing to expand our business, offering our customers the opportunity to reduce their costs and increase productivity with innovative new products and services,” said McLoughlin.

“At the same time as we opened our new Campbellfield headquarters, we also launched the new Topcon Tierra equipment management system in Australia and we see enormous potential for this product offering over the next few years.

“Our aim is to be partners in productivity with all our customers – and we are well on track to achieving this core vision for the industry,” he said.
