RIEGL capitalises on North America LiDAR tech demand with new regional HQ

RIEGL USA has relocated to a new state-of-the-art, RIEGL group financed North America headquarters and training center in Winter Garden, Florida.

This investment was made possible by the continued success and growth of RIEGL in North America, the excellent and determined teamwork of the RIEGL USA team, and by the strong confidence that the RIEGL headquarters in Austria, Europe, is placing in the North American market, RIEGL said.

RIEGL USA’s new 1,719 sq.m facility is located on its own ground of approximately 7.7 ha at 14707 West Colonial Drive, Winter Garden, just west of Orlando, Florida.

The multi-million-dollar headquarters and training facility features modern training rooms and service areas including climate chambers and laser test ranges for equipment testing and calibration, a customer support centre, a distribution hub, and sales and administration offices.

RIEGL USA President, Johannes Riegl Jr, said: “Over the last couple of years, we have continuously grown our business here in North America and this new facility resembles that continued growth. The support of our headquarters in Austria has been critical to the development of this amazing building we are now in.”

Due to current COVID-19 travel restrictions, the official Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will be delayed and take place in 2021 after restrictions are lifted.

The new facility has been constructed by DPR Construction company, which has used RIEGL LiDAR terrestrial scanners and UAV-based technologies throughout the construction process to document and monitor the progress of the construction.
