June 11, 2013

Trimble has acquired privately held Actronic Holdings Ltd. of Auckland, New Zealand. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Actronic Technologies produces the industry leading Loadrite weighing system for wheel loaders, excavators, conveyors and waste collection vehicles.

Loadrite extends Trimble’s Connected Site portfolio by adding weight as an element of information collected at the machine. This extended capability will better enable contractors to use the Trimble Connected Site to achieve comprehensive real-time intelligence on asset and site productivity for the contractors mixed fleet. Trimble’s Connected Site is an extensive information architecture that optimizes and integrates operations across the construction site and the office, thereby enabling improved planning, more advanced monitoring, and significantly greater productivity.

“The Loadrite system is widely recognized as setting the standard for our industry, a result of over 30 years industry expertise gained by working closely with machine owners and operators,” said Gottfried Pausch, general manager for Actronic Technologies. “I believe the addition of the Loadrite system to Trimble’s leading portfolio of positioning and automation technology solutions extend our collective ability to deliver more powerful and robust solutions designed to improve operational efficiency and reporting and allow our customers to maximize their profits.”
