Marubeni-Komatsu link up with Topcon
Partnership agreement to provide cutting-edge machine-control technology across the UK
TOPCON Positioning GB and Ireland are partnering with Marubeni-Komatsu, the sole UK distributors of Komatsu construction and mining equipment, to provide machine control technology.
The deal means Marubeni-Komatsu customers will now have access to the full range of Topcon machine-control systems, which feature sophisticated technology to allow for a more efficient workflow across retrofitted systems – including excavators and dozers.
The Topcon 3D Machine Control platform has been designed to provide superior control capabilities and acts as a productivity tool by simplifying construction processes and giving operators the opportunity to reduce waste and improve safety.
Jeremy Nugent, sales director at Marubeni-Komatsu, said: ‘Customer demand for intelligent machine control is a rapidly growing part of our business as big efficiency and productivity gains are being realized on projects up and down the country. This agreement with Topcon gives us an enhanced ability to provide our customers with the most cutting-edge job-site solutions.’
Dave Bennett, managing director at Topcon Positioning GB and Ireland, said: ‘It’s great to be working with such a forward-thinking business to be able to provide the best-possible equipment for construction and mining professionals. We’re looking forward to developing our relationship with Marubeni-Komatsu Ltd and their customers to truly increase efficiency on job sites across the UK.’
