Leica Geosystems Mining
Leica Geosystems Mining is a division of Leica Geosystems, and part of Hexagon. Leica Geosystems Mining opened a global technical center in 2004 located in Brisbane, Australia. The company's products provide positioning technology that measures, monitors and models every phase of the mine life cycle. Its customers span over 100 mines, in 20 countries around the world.
The company is best known as a provider of fleet management and high precision machine guidance; however, now they have created a reputation for being a one-point-of-call for all measurement technology, incorporating all the capabilities and offerings from Leica Geosystems and Hexagon's companies.
Leica Geosystems Mining and Locata Corporation Pty Ltd formed an exclusive partnership to provide the mining industry with the world’s only high-precision radio positioning system that is not reliant on GPS.
Leica Geosystems has been providing measurement technology since 1819.
Leica Geosystems in 2003 announced that it acquired Tritronics Pty Ltd, a leading supplier of integrated machine automation and site management solutions for the mining industry.
Leica Geosystems Mining opened in Brisbane, Australia, in 2004.
Leica Geosystems was acquired by Hexagon AB in 2005.
In 2007, Hexagon AB acquired Jigsaw Technologies and integrated Leica Geosystems Mining products to create the next generation of the Leica Jigsaw platform.
In October 2013, Hexagon AB expanded its mining footprint with the acquisition of Devex.
