GeoSLAM, the global market leader in “go-anywhere” 3D mobile mapping technology, has bolstered its presence in Asia by securing two new distributors in China.
The UK-based firm, which works across a range of industries including surveying, engineering and construction, has announced partnerships with Beijing Onrol Technology Co. Ltd and Beijing MAG Tianhong Science & Technology Development Co. Ltd.
GeoSLAM’s award-winning technology enables the real-time 3D mobile mapping of indoor, underground and hard-to-access places – and now the Beijing distributors are set to take it out to China’s growing markets.
Onrol, headquartered in the Chaoyang District of Beijing, is a 3D scanning technology specialist, operating in sectors such as heritage, public safety and building. It will be focusing its efforts in the North and North East of China.
Located in the Shijingshan District, Beijing MAG also supplies mapping solutions, including 3D laser scanners and BIM systems. Its focus will be eight central Chinese provinces, along with Shanghai.
The latest deals mean that GeoSLAM, best known for its ZEB-REVO handheld mobile mapping devices, now works with 49 distributors in 40 territories around the world.
John Allan, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, said:
“China remains one of the world’s fastest growing economies with high investment in infrastructure development and construction. Our cutting-edge handheld 3D laser scanning technology enables companies working in these areas to plan, build and monitor their development projects much more efficiently than before. The GeoSLAM products will significantly expand the offerings that Beijing MAG and Beijing Onrol already supply into these markets.”
GeoSLAM was established in 2012 as a joint venture between CSIRO (Australia’s National Science Agency and the inventors of Wi-Fi) and UK investors. As well as China, its Asian distribution network includes Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
