Topcon Acquires DynaRoad, Opens New Technology Center Print E-mail
Written by Topcon Positioning Group   
Tuesday, 12 November 2013

Livermore, Calif., USA/ Capelle a/d Ijssel, The Netherlands – November 12, 2013 – Topcon Positioning Group announces the acquisition of DynaRoad Oy, a construction software company in Helsinki, Finland. Topcon also announced the establishment of the Topcon Helsinki Technology Center in conjunction with the acquisition.

In 2011, Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) acquired a significant share of DynaRoad, a company that develops project management software specifically designed for large-scale construction projects – highway, tunnel, railway, area development and harbor.

Ray O’Connor, TPS president and CEO, said by acquiring 100 percent of DynaRoad, “Contractors and designers who are looking to cut construction costs through design optimization and better task management now have a strong central source for production management with DynaRoad being integrated to other Topcon systems.

“The new technology center in Helsinki has a strong foundation as the team has already worked with Topcon for approximately four years. We look forward to releasing new world-class products with them.”

The DynaRoad software combined with Topcon’s Sitelink3D Enterprise, a real-time task management tool, O’Connor said, creates “an integrated machine control solution for all phases of earthworks projects, from pre-planning to construction.”

Juuso Makinen, CEO of DynaRoad, said the acquisition “finalizes the close working relationship the two companies have had for years. This is a natural step to take as the integration of machine control and planning software enables us to automate many aspects of production management. Automating manual repetitive tasks such as task progress monitoring means our customers will have a better understanding of their site’s status and more time to spend on optimizing production.”

Ivan Di Federico, TPS chief strategy officer, said, “DynaRoad is a perfect fit to the Topcon organization. The focus of their software and services is on construction economics – namely time and cost optimization. These products and experiences, together with Topcon’s machine automation and real-time communication, will bring our customers to the next level of productivity.”

As a result of the acquisition, the DynaRoad products will be available through Topcon dealers worldwide.

With the new Helsinki Technology Center, Topcon now has seven technology centers around the globe, including in Japan, Australia, Italy and Russia, plus two in the United States (Ohio and California).
