This move comes close to a year after the company opened an office in Christchurch, New Zealand.

There is increasing demand in the region for new technologies Position Partners managing director Martin Nix says, adding: "By opening an office in South East Asia we will be able to offer a range of solutions for the mining, engineering and construction industries."

Nix says Position Partners’ Southeast Asian office would offer sales and hire services across a range of positioning technologies, including Topcon Machine Control for civil construction, MAVinci and AscTec Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), and Carlson machine guidance for mining.

Business development manager Evan Stead will manage the new branch. He joined Position Partners two years ago, after working for Thiess Queensland as an engineering manager.

"I see this as a great opportunity to increase efficiencies and productivity within the region’s mining and construction industry," Stead says. "I am looking forward to demonstrating how our technologies can improve customer’s bottom line.

"Position Partners’ Southeast Asia team is confident of success thanks to the backing of Position Partners’ extensive resources in Australia," he adds.
