Trimble Expands Smart Water Capabilities With Telog Acquisition
Trimble has acquired privately-held Telog Instruments Inc., based in Victor, N.Y. Telog specializes in wireless water infrastructure monitoring and management solutions. The acquisition extends Trimble’s smart water strategy by adding advanced water management technology and productivity solutions to the portfolio. Financial terms were not disclosed.
“Trimble remains focused on offering industry-leading technology solutions for the water industry,” says Marcus McCarthy, general manager for Trimble’s Water Division. “The acquisition of Telog enables us to expand our portfolio of hardware and software products with industry-leading real-time wireless sensors and monitoring solutions. The management of data in real time will provide value to customers facing a growing number of water supply, environmental and regulatory challenges.”
Applications for Telog solutions include remote monitoring of flow rates, reservoir and tank levels, water quality, well and groundwater levels, pump station performance, hydrant and valve pressure, and sewer overflows. The solutions can also be combined with automated metering infrastructure to provide smart water networks that improve sustainability and water conservation, and reduce leakage and non-revenue water. Customers can benefit through improved drinking water quality, lower water loss and leakage, reduced wastewater and storm water overflows and spills, and enhanced regulatory compliance.
“We are very excited to join Trimble. In addition to the continued focus on supporting our current customers and our core North American market, the acquisition will enable us to grow Telog’s suite of products and expand our global footprint,” says Barry Ceci, founder, president and CEO of Telog. “This is an exciting time for Telog and our customers, who can also benefit from Trimble’s comprehensive portfolio of smart water management solutions.”
