news Komatsu dealer teams up with Topcon

Technology firm Topcon has struck an alliance with Marubeni-Komatsu in the British Isles.

Topcon Positioning GB & Ireland is partnering with Marubeni-Komatsu, the sole UK distributor of Komatsu construction and mining equipment, to provide machine control technology.

The deal means Marubeni-Komatsu customers will now have access to Topcon systems, including for retrofitting.

The Topcon 3D Machine Control platform is designed to make excavators and dozers more productive by simplifying construction processes and giving operators the opportunity to reduce waste.

Marubeni-Komatsu sales director Jeremy Nugent said: “Customer demand for intelligent machine control is a rapidly growing part of our business as big efficiency and productivity gains are being realised 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 & Ireland, said: “We’re looking forward to developing our relationship with Marubeni-Komatsu Ltd and its customers to truly increase efficiency on job sites across the UK.”

One of the reasons we became a plant machinery hire company in the first place was because there are very few places you could hire mini, micro diggers, a hi-tip dumper or tracked barrow so we have a selection of plant machinery you can hire for your own projects. So when you’re designing your own project, the hardest thing is to clear the site, so we have made it easy for you.
