Topcon Corporation of Tokyo has announced the acquisition of U.S.-based Voxis Inc. The acquisition of Voxis of Point Richmond, Calif. culminates a development relationship with Topcon of more than two years, which resulted in the recent announcement of the company’s GLS-1000 laser scanner.

“The Voxis agreement will strengthen the extremely positive working relationship we have had with the company for the past three years,” said Norio (Nick) Uchida, general manager of Topcon Corporation’s Positioning Business Unit. “Jerry Dimsdale (president) and Joe West (vice president of engineering) have assembled a great team of research and development engineers.”
