Lieca changes name to project a unified voice.

Effective May 6, 2002, Laser Alignment Inc. is officially known as Leica Geosystems GR LLC.

Acquired in January 2001 by Leica Geosystems of Heerbrugg, Switzerland, Laser Alignment became a part of the parent company’s Construction business segment. This name change is a long-planned outgrowth of Leica Geosystems' desire to project a unified voice for its construction business segment to the entire surveying and construction industry.

Together with its other product lines, Leica Geosystems offers one of the largest geomatics related product baskets, providing customers highly flexible data-flow capabilities between construction site and office. This product basket also includes a full range of laser products, such as the new Rugby rotating laser, as well as automated 2D and 3D machine control systems.
