A Note from the President's Desk
The consolidation in our industry has accelerated over the years, reducing competition and choice. Considering just robotic total station companies, you once had the choice of Geodimeter (Sweden), Zeiss (Germany), Topcon (Japan), Sokkia (Japan), Trimble (US) and Leica (Switzerland, owned by Hexagon based in Sweden). Geodimeter and Zeiss are now consolidated inside Trimble, and Topcon purchased Sokkia, leaving only Trimble, Hexago n and T opcon. Even Nikon (Japan), which never produced a robotic total station, is now part of Trimble.

Too Busy to Learn?
by Doug Aaberg
It’s July, which means companies are, hopefully, head down working on deadlines with little time to think about much of anything else, especially learning something new.

I know for myself that even profits were not something I could really spend much time thinking about when everyone was working countless hours and there was a mad rush to the Fed-Ex drop box to get a set of plans out almost daily. So thinking about learning anything new was not in the cards and the idea of training me or my employees was put off until winter. A perfectly logical statement therefore is “We’re too busy to learn.”
