Topcon Positioning Group has acquired DynaRoad Oy, a construction software company in Helsinki, Finland. Topcon also established the Topcon Helsinki Technology Center in conjunction with the acquisition.
Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) acquired a significant share of DynaRoad in 2011. DynaRoad develops project management software specifically designed for large-scale construction projects.
“The new technology center in Helsinki has a strong foundation as the team has already worked with Topcon for approximately four years. We look forward to releasing new world-class products with them,” said Ray O’Connor, TPS president and CEO.
As a result of the acquisition, the DynaRoad products will be available through Topcon dealers worldwide.
Juuso Makinen, CEO of DynaRoad, said the acquisition “finalizes the close working relationship the two companies have had for years. This is a natural step to take as the integration of machine control and planning software enables us to automate many aspects of production management.”
With the new Helsinki Technology Center, Topcon now has seven technology centers around the globe, including in Japan, Australia, Italy and Russia, plus two in the United States (Ohio and California).
