3D Laser Mapping and GeoSLAM Merge as One Company

Leading UK laser scanning and monitoring companies 3D Laser Mapping Ltd and GeoSLAM Ltd have merged to create one mobile mapping and monitoring technology provider.

3D Laser Mapping is a world-leading geospatial technology supplier and innovator that works alongside Working governments, universities, blue-chip firms and operators of highways, power lines and railways. They help their customers to capture and understand the world in 3D.

GeoSLAM is a global market leader in 3D handheld mobile mapping technology solutions. Their “go-anywhere” technology is adaptable to all environments especially spaces that are indoor, underground or difficult to access, providing accurate 3D mobile mapping without the need for GPS.

Graham Hunter, the founder of 3D Laser Mapping said, “This merger will combine the best of the two organisations with strong global coverage. They both have very different skill sets with GeoSLAM specialising in global sales, marketing and distribution, whilst 3D Laser Mapping bringing advanced R&D capabilities. This will enable the new organisation to supply next generation leading products worldwide. The contribution of CSIRO since the formation of GeoSLAM in 2012, has been significant in creating the market for handheld mobile mapping and I look forward to strengthening our relationship through this merger”.

Shareholders agreed to merge the businesses to take advantage of new world market opportunities, increased R&D capability and ensure greater market reach. Shareholders include Graham Hunter, the founder of 3D Laser Mapping and CSIRO’s Data61, Australia’s data innovation network, part of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, Australia’s national science agency.

Adrian Turner, CEO of CSIRO’s Data61, said, “The merger with 3D Laser Mapping will accelerate the business into the geospatial data analytics domain, which has potential to reinvent industries worldwide.”

The newly merged companies will trade as GeoSLAM Ltd, leveraging its global brand that has been developed over the past years.

David Burton, CFO of GeoSLAM commented, “The combined resources of these businesses will help us to exceed our level of service and support to global customers and dealers. We will continue working with our customers and dealers in the same way as we do now, but look forward to enhancing their experience by bringing together two innovative and ambitious organisations.”

The new GeoSLAM has offices located in the UK, USA, Netherlands, Australia and South Africa.
