Advanced Lasers, headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, is a leading provider of machine control and surveying products for measuring professionals in Indiana, Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky. Technologies such as reference station networks, robotics, GPS and machine control systems are the core business of this market leading organization.

The acquisition of Advanced Lasers is part of our execution plan within Leica Geosystems’ overall NAFTA growth strategy. Even as there continues to be challenges in the economy this year, we will execute our growth strategy and invest in the precision measurement market space as specific opportunities arise,” says Ken Mooyman, President and CEO of Leica Geosystems, Inc.

Joining with Allen Precision Equipment and utilizing APE’s infrastructure will allow us to continue to grow our business at a rapid rate while increasing the level of our service and support to our customers.”
