GeoSam Oy Wins Ashtech Machine Control, GIS, GNSS Contract

April 19, 2011

GeoSam Oy, a newly-formed Finnish distributor of global positioning and surveying equipment, has been selected to represent Ashtech machine control, GIS, GNSS and GPS products.

GeoSam Oy has teamed with Ashtech “because the Ashtech brand and its heritage, Magellan and Thales, are well-known and respected in Finland,” said Jukka Lindstrom, GeoSam Oy Manager and Director. “The Finnish user is very sophisticated, and the market has a large number of network RTK customers, which is a good fit for Ashtech solutions,” Lindstrom noted.

“GeoSam Oy personnel are highly experienced in machine control solutions, land survey and construction markets,” said Ashtech EMEA sales director, Jean-Marc Ferre. “We expect that GeoSam’s strong expertise and their commitment to fielding a dedicated Ashtech sales and support team will very soon make GeoSam Oy and Ashtech a strong leader in the Finnish market,” Ferre added.

GeoSam Oy will market the Ashtech MobileMapper 100, the ProMark 100/200/500 series and the ProFlex product series.
