The Brandt Group of Companies has opened its new positioning technology facility to help simplify tech integration.

The new Brandt Positioning Technology Centre of Excellence opened on April 26 at 2 Castleview Drive in Brampton, Ontario.

The facility is the only one of its kind in Canada and represents the result of Brandt’s continued investment in the Canadian survey, engineering and construction industries.

In combination with Brandt’s pre-existing positioning technology footprint, the Brandt Positioning Technology Centre will deliver a combination of parts, equipment, service and support for its customers.

“We’re really excited about all that this new facility has to offer and all of the new ways it’s going to allow us to serve our customers in the GTA and beyond,”

said Dan Hendriks, vice president of Brandt Positioning Technology. “The goal is always to set our customers up for success and to help make sure they get the most out of their equipment. The Centre of Excellence goes a long way to help us achieve that.”

The new facility will offer the largest parts and equipment inventory in Canada, as well as provide services, products and support for all Brandt’s geospatial and construction technology offerings, which currently includes the full suite of Topcon and Sokkia products.

As well, the Centre of Excellence will feature in-house product demonstrations, training, and an expert support team.

In July of 2020, Brandt acquired the assets of GeoShack Canada Company and the Canadian assets of INTEQ Distributors.

The acquisition, which relates to the Ontario and Quebec markets, makes Brandt the exclusive dealer for Topcon Positioning Systems and other complimentary tools and technology for the entire Canadian market.

Last year, Brandt also acquired Sokkia Canada. The acquisition makes Brandt the exclusive dealer for Sokkia optical survey instruments, accessories and parts for the entire Canadian market. The acquisition consolidated Sokkia distribution for the first time under one banner.
