Officially opened in March 2019, this new facility allows SITECH Chesapeake to better serve its customers from a central location, while also providing the company access to dedicated warehouse space, a modern workshop and plenty of space for educational seminars. Growth has been so robust for SITECH Chesapeake over the past year that the company is looking to hire additional staff over the next couple of months.
During the event, technology took center stage. SITECH Chesapeake displayed Trimble Status Drone Software, Trimble Business Center, Fleet Management Systems, Lasers, Trimble Earthworks and Site Positioning Systems. New technology can be daunting for many people, so SITECH Chesapeake ensured any and all questions would be answered by making available product management teams and senior management from Trimble, dealer representatives from Alban Cat, as well as SITECH's own expert representatives.
Michael Carris, software representative of Trimble, explained the Trimble Stratus software, which helps civil contractors use drones to map, measure and share accurate information about their worksites and assets.
"If you are on the ground, locating poles, fences or wetland areas, they are location devices. We all think of this as a control for moving material, to help grade the sites. That same technology can be used as a map site for grading," he said.
