Leica, GOMACO Sign Reseller Agreement

January 19, 2011

Leica Geosystems says it has entered into a definitive OEM value added reseller agreement with GOMACO.

Over the last 12 years, the relationship between Leica and GOMACO has brought the industry a 3D stringless paving technology solution, getting it to the point of acceptance it is today. This new business relationship will enable further collaboration: Concrete paving contractors will benefit from continued technological innovations.

Under the terms of the agreement, GOMACO Corporation will sell, install, and support Leica Geosystems’ Concrete Paving System. These services will be extended to existing and/or new customers using GOMACO equipment. The agreement started in January 1, 2011.

Leica Geosystems will continue to sell, service and support the concrete paving market with 3D stringless technology for all other manufacturers of paving machines through its direct and dealer channels.

“This agreement marks a natural evolution of an already highly successful relationship with GOMACO. By leveraging the unique strengths of Leica Geosystems and GOMACO, this agreement will accelerate the growth and adoption of 3D stringless paving technology in the concrete paving industry,” said Ken Mooyman, president of Hexagon Geosystems.

Kent Godbersen, GOMACO vice president of worldwide sales and marketing said, “GOMACO made a commitment to stringless paving over a decade ago and together, we have invested in the development of 3D paving for the industry. This announcement with Leica Geosystems is evidence of our commitment to our customers in not only getting them the latest technology available, but also supporting that technology throughout the paving process."

Last week, GOMACO announced an internal machine-control division.
