According to Craig Martin, General Manager, US East at Leica Geosystems, "From paint and flagging, safety supplies, total stations and GPS systems for surveying, construction lasers and building layout systems, we are here to fulfill our customers everyday needs with outstanding service and support. At the Leica Geosystems Solutions Center in Duluth, knowledgeable salespeople are available to help customers learn about the latest technology from Leica Geosystems and test-drive any of the current Leica Geosystems products. I am confident our first store is going to be a favorite destination for members of the construction and surveying community in Georgia".

Ken Mooyman, President, says "The Leica Geosystems Solutions Center concept was created with the local customer’s needs in mind.

Across North America, our Solutions Centers will combine with our powerful independent Leica Geosystems distributors and direct sales people to covering most major local markets and surrounding areas. The Allen Precision Equipment catalog will continue to reach thousands of customers across America who may not have a local distributor nearby. These four channels give our customers full access to all our services and products no matter where they are located".
