UK laser scanning and monitoring companies 3D Laser Mapping Ltd. and GeoSLAM Ltd. merged to take advantage of new world market opportunities and increased R&D capability as well as ensure greater market reach. The newly merged companies will trade as GeoSLAM Ltd.
“This merger will combine the best of two leading organizations with strong global coverage,” said Graham Hunter, the founder of 3D Laser Mapping. “They both have very different skill sets, with GeoSLAM specializing in global sales, marketing and distribution, whilst 3D Laser Mapping bringing advanced R&D capabilities. The contribution of CSIRO, since the formation of GeoSLAM in 2012, has been significant in creating the market for handheld mobile mapping, and I look forward to strengthening our relationship through this merger.”
The new GeoSLAM has offices in the UK, United States, Netherlands, Australia and South Africa.
