Is there a dealer group in any sector with the momentum of the SITECH Technology Dealer network?
In its third dealer news release this week alone, Trimble today announced the establishment of two SITECH Technology Dealers serving markets in Alabama, Florida and Georgia. SITECH North and Central Florida will serve heavy civil construction contractors in the central and northern area of Florida, including counties east of and including Franklin, Liberty and Gadsden, and those north of and including Sarasota, DeSota, Highlands, Osceola and Brevard. SITECH South will serve heavy civil construction contractors in the states of Alabama, Georgia, and Florida in counties west of and including Gulf, Calhoun and Jackson, and counties south of and including Charlotte, Glades, Indian River and Okeechobee.
Earlier this week, SITECH Dakotas and SITECH Myanmar were introduced in announcements on back-to-back days. Just two weeks prior, Trimble announced the establishment of SITECH New Zealand. They join the network of SITECH dealerships — described by Trimble as “the first fully dedicated global distribution network offering the most comprehensive portfolio of construction technology systems available to the heavy and highway contractor.” Along with Trimble’s portfolio of Connected Site solutions including site positioning systems and site communications infrastructure, SITECH Technology Dealers represent Trimble and Caterpillar machine control systems for the contractor’s entire fleet of heavy equipment, regardless of machine brand.
Both SITECH South and SITECH North and Central Florida will serve heavy civil construction contractors involved in a range of earthmoving applications, as well as site prep for large commercial, industrial and residential projects. As Trimble has been establishing a SITECH Technology Dealer network throughout various parts of the world, these new U.S. South organizations join a distribution network offering consultative advice on construction technology solutions, customized training, data services, installation, service and technical support.
The experienced construction professionals at each SITECH dealership can advise contractors on the appropriate construction technology solutions to utilize, and can provide high-quality local customer service, personalized training and technical support, says Trimble. As authorized dealers for Trimble site-wide solutions and Caterpillar’s machine control systems, SITECH Technology Dealers understand how to apply innovative construction technology to help solve a variety of contractors’ construction challenges. Leveraging technology, contractors can gain greater insight into their operations, enabling them to lower operating costs and improve accuracy, safety and productivity, the company says. Through the adoption of construction technology, contractors can experience new levels of productivity that enable more competitive bidding on projects.
Trimble’s Heavy Civil Construction Division provides productivity solutions for the heavy and highway contractor, leveraging a variety of technologies including GPS, construction lasers, total stations, wireless data communications, the Internet and application software. As part of the Trimble Connected Site strategy, these solutions provide a high-level of process and workflow integration from the design phase through to the finished project — delivering significant improvements in productivity throughout the construction lifecycle.
Headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif., parent Trimble applies technology to make field and mobile workers in businesses and government significantly more productive. Solutions are focused on applications requiring position or location, including surveying, construction, agriculture, fleet and asset management, public safety and mapping. In addition to utilizing positioning technologies such as GPS, lasers and optics, Trimble solutions may include software content specific to the needs of the user, efficiently delivered via wireless technologies.
