Topcon Positioning Group announced the acquisition DynaRoad Oy, a construction software company in Finland. Topcon also announced the establishment of the Topcon Helsinki Technology Center in conjunction with the acquisition.

As a result of the acquisition, the DynaRoad products will be available through Topcon dealers worldwide. 

With the new Helsinki Technology Center, Topcon now has seven technology centers around the globe, including ones in Japan, Australia, Italy and Russia, plus two in the United States (Ohio and California). 

In 2011, Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) acquired a significant share of DynaRoad, a company that develops project management software specifically designed for large-scale construction projects—highway, tunnel, railway, area development and harbor.

Now Topcon has acquired 100 percent of DynaRoad. “Contractors and designers who are looking to cut construction costs through design optimization and better task management now have a strong central source for production management with DynaRoad being integrated to other Topcon systems,” Topcon president and CEO Ray O’Connor said. “The new technology center in Helsinki has a strong foundation as the team has already worked with Topcon for approximately four years. We look forward to releasing new world-class products with them.”
