RIEGL now has direct representation throughout the UK and Ireland with its new office in York, England, offering support to its existing RIEGL customers and access to the full range of RIEGL products.
RIEGL UK Ltd will have a primary focus on the terrestrial and UAV sectors, while providing initial point of contact for airborne and mobile products into various industries in the market, the laser measurement system company said.
The new RIEGL UK office is helmed by David Foster, who serves as the Managing Director of the organisation, alongside Bernhard Kurzbauer, who is Commercial Director.
Foster said: “The laser scanning market in this region has grown from strength to strength in recent years. With a highly respected and extremely professional forensic investigations sector, including a large number of Forensic Collision Investigations Units across the country, it made perfect sense to be able to support this sector directly.
“Additionally, there has been a large increase in research of earth sciences, carbon capture and other green applications drawing on RIEGL’s unique waveform capabilities across all products, with a great many educational establishments utilising RIEGL products. And, of course, not forgetting the growth in infrastructure development and construction, spatial data consumption has never been greater.”
Johannes Riegl Jr, President of RIEGL International, the RIEGL division responsible for worldwide expansion of the RIEGL group, said: “We are very excited to further increase our dedicated RIEGL presence by opening our new office in the UK. I offer congratulations and all the best to Dave Foster for his new responsibility and for growing RIEGL in the UK and Ireland to new levels.”
The new subsidiary is joining the existing network of RIEGL offices in Austria (headquarters), the US, Japan, China, Australia, and Canada as well as numerous worldwide distributors.
