Topcon Partners With Operators Union

Dec. 9, 2022

Topcon has announced a partnership with the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) that will provide the IUOE's International Training & Education Center (ITEC) with a variety of Topcon equipment, training, and other services.

As part of the agreement, Topcon will provide, install, and support dozer, grader, and excavator machine control solutions, GNSS base and rover kits, lasers and receivers, as well as regular field service, training and consulting, repairs, extended warranties, access to Topcon eLearning resources through myTopcon, the myTopcon NOW! app, and more.

Topcon will also offer substantial standardized discounts on construction positioning products for all local IUOE unions, including machine control solutions, lasers, GNSS receivers, and optical equipment.

“As part of this new managed services program, Topcon will offer educational opportunities to ensure that all IUOE members and ITEC trainees are comfortable and experienced when using our precision positioning solutions out on today’s connected job site,” said Brian Juroff, SVP, Topcon Positioning Systems. “We’re proud to support the IUOE with a full range of tools and services to assist operating engineers in training.”

“We have always valued our industry partnership with Topcon, so the IUOE is excited about this new opportunity—we feel that this is just the next logical step to continue our partnership,” said Chris Treml, executive director, IUOE National Training Fund. “This program is not only important to the IUOE trainees at the International Training & Education Center in Crosby, Texas, but it also brings a huge bonus to our local unions around North America when purchasing GPS equipment for their training needs.”
