Scottsdale, AZ, USA – April 13, 2016 – Hemisphere GNSS is pleased to announce a significant expansion of their strategic partnership with CPAC Systems, Gothenburg, Sweden (CPAC), owned by the Volvo Group. After signing a large contract, Hemisphere will now be the sole source of GNSS positioning and heading systems to CPAC Systems.
Hemisphere’s technology is being used in the recently announced Co-Pilot series for Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) as part of Volvo CE’s industry-changing machine control solutions.
“We were extremely pleased to be chosen by CPAC for use of our GNSS technology,” said Chuck Joseph, Hemisphere GNSS President and CEO. “We are proud of the relationship we have developed with CPAC over the years. It is one of the most innovative companies in the industry and this latest, deeply integrated solution proves how well we collaborate to create value together. It is the very nature of this agreement that defines Hemisphere GNSS as a company, willing to work with and for our strategic partners. We see it as our responsibility to make certain we align ourselves and our business strategy with our OEM and integrator partners like CPAC.”
Initially offering its GNSS positioning and heading technology to CPAC to be used in marine applications, Hemisphere’s diverse cross-platform technology portfolio allows it to be applied in other areas where high-precision, high-accuracy GNSS is required.
“Over the years, Hemisphere GNSS has provided our company with top tier innovation, technology, and service,” said Richard Berkling, President of CPAC Systems. “Hemisphere GNSS’ long term strategy and awareness of their value-added contribution to our customer’s solutions are in perfect alignment with ours which is why we chose them as a partner for the GNSS technology. We look forward to executing this next major phase of our partnership with them.”
