Leica Geosystems Responds to Increasing Demand in North Carolina

Appoints a direct sales representative and establishes an authorized service and repair facility.

(Norcross, Ga., 23 June 2011) In response to sharply increasing demand for comprehensive surveying solutions in North Carolina, Leica Geosystems has appointed Dean Howell as direct sales representative to the state, and established a dealer relationship with Transit and Level Clinic, Inc. (TLC). These new relationships will improve service and support for surveyors, contractors, engineers, and other measurement specialists in North Carolina, and shorten delivery time for new and repaired equipment. “North Carolina is a progressive state, and we’re happy to see the demand for our most sophisticated surveying solutions increasing so rapidly,” said Leica Geosystems general manager Craig Martin, “It’s time for us to strengthen our presence in the Tar Heel State, and Dean and TLC are going to do a great job for us.”

Howell has 20 years experience in land surveying and became a Registered Professional Land Surveyor in North Carolina. In 2001, Howell began working with a local equipment dealer, and developed expertise in sales, technical support, and training. Martin says, “It’s rare to find so much field experience and equipment expertise in one person—our customers are really going to benefit from Dean’s experience!”

“Like most professions, surveying and engineering are affected by today’s rapidly changing technology,” Howell says, “The use of robotics, GPS, and laser scanning can all be a little overwhelming. I always think about the customers who need this technology and their need to be more productive. I’m really happy to be representing Leica Geosystems —no other manufacturer is providing cutting edge technology that works so reliably. I’m excited about the combination of North Carolina’s excellent surveyors and Leica Geosystems’ world class equipment!”

To expand and improve product service and support, Leica Geosystems has also established a relationship with Transit and Level Clinic, Inc. (TLC), a full-service equipment dealer with three offices, two of which are in North Carolina. TLC has been in business calibrating and repairing survey equipment since 1981. The business is family-owned and is headquartered in Cary, with a branch office in Charlotte. Each location is fully stocked with the supplies, equipment, and fully trained repair technicians needed to keep survey and engineering businesses running smoothly.

“We are proud to be part of this strategic partnership with Leica Geosystems in the Carolinas,” said Bucky Lawley, general manager of Transit and Level Clinic, “With our 35 years of service experience and our commitment to industry excellence, we’ll be able to team with Leica Geosystems to offer complete solutions—sales, service, and training—for a full product line including everything from levels to GNSS receivers to robotic total stations.”

“Leica Geosystems has never had a lineup of experts like this in North Carolina,” says Martin, “With dedicated sales support from Dean, and expert service and sales support from TLC, Leica Geosystems is now positioned to be the leading provider of survey and construction equipment in North Carolina.”
