Optron-Geofix Appointed Leica Geosystems Construction Positioning Dealer for Southern Quebec

Optron-Geofix, a construction and land surveying equipment dealer, has been appointed as a Leica Geosystems dealer for GPS, robotics, and total stations in Southern Quebec. “Many of our customers use Leica land surveying equipment to measure bridges, tunnels, and other big structures,” says Optron-Geofix President Bob Beaudin.

According to Peter Hettstedt general manager - Leica Geosystems, Canada, “Optron-Geofix has always had an excellent reputation for service and support, and these are some of the key attributes we look for with our business partners. This is what sets us apart from our competitors and builds a high-degree of customer satisfaction and loyalty to the Leica Geosystems brand. We are therefore excited to be working with the team at Optron-Geofix.”

Optron-Geofix, located in Laval, Quebec near Montreal, chose Leica Geosystems because of its reputation for precision optics as well as the demand for its total stations, GPS, and robotics from Optron’s existing customers.

“In the winter, the temperature in Quebec can reach minus 20 degrees,” says Beaudin. “But Leica can withstand that, and the extreme cold does not affect the precision of the instruments.” Another advantage is that Leica systems are available in both English and French versions; and Quebec is mostly French speaking.

Beaudin concluded, “With its Swiss-made, high-end optical tooling, Leica Geosystems is the Mercedes Benz of total stations and robotics. Some other brands of instruments are not as precise and can be as much as a centimeter off; you don’t get that with Leica. And nobody comes close to Leica Geosystems for dealer support; your call is returned in minutes instead of hours or days. They are the best organization I have seen in my 27 years in this business.”
