Topcon Unit Hones in on Construction

September 28, 2010

A new business unit at Topcon Positioning Systems is focused exclusively on construction. The TPS Construction Business Unit “encompasses every aspect of our operations from product development straight through the operations to serving the needs of the customers,” says TPS president and CEO Ray O'Connor. Topcon's survey instrument division also becomes a separate business unit.

“We are taking the two premier brands in the survey global marketplace – Topcon and Sokkia – and building an organization to maximize our opportunities in every segment of the survey business,” O'Connor says in a Topcon company release.

Jamie Williamson, formerly senior vice president and general manager of the TPS Survey and Construction Business Unit, will head up the TPS Construction Business Unit, which offers such products as machine control systems, lasers, and construction total stations via a dealer network throughout the United States, Canada and South America.
