Nottinghamshire 3D mobile mapping technology specialist, GeoSLAM, is on track to achieve its ambitious growth plans in 2018 after relocating to new UK headquarters.
The Nottinghamshire-based firm, which recently celebrated five years in the industry, has moved to Innovation House, a technology hub at Ruddington Business Park just outside the city of Nottingham. The new premises will enable the company to achieve its goal to double in size in the coming year.
GeoSLAM, the global experts in ‘go anywhere’ 3D mobile mapping technology, develops handheld laser scanners that quickly and simply capture geospatial data on complex, indoor or difficult-to-access sites for the creation of 2D floorplans and 3D BIM models.
The success of 2016’s innovative ZEB-REVO handheld scanner, and the recently launched ZEB-REVO RT, have fuelled this growth, as David Burton, CEO, explains:
“Our relocation is not just about taking on new offices. It’s an important milestone in the company’s history and a fitting way to celebrate both a year of successes and five years in the industry.
“2017 has seen an increase in sales of 300% from 2016, a doubling of staff numbers and a growth of our global distribution network. We now serve companies working in multiple industries such as surveying, engineering and facilities management in over 50 countries”
“We attribute this success to the simple yet transformative nature of our products. Our mobile mapping solutions dramatically reduce project costs because teams are now able to identify potential problems before work begins. Compared to traditional survey methods, our scanners allow practically anyone to capture vast quantities of data, quickly, easily, and across a huge range of environments”
GeoSLAM is a joint venture between 3D Laser Mapping in Nottinghamshire and Australia’s national science agency CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation).
