Trimble acquires Amtech Group

Published:  14 November, 2014

Amtech Group Ltd has been acquired by Trimble, a building construction solutions provider based in Sunnyvale, California.

Amtech, based in Milton Keynes, United Kingdom, provides software solutions for specification, design, estimating, procurement, construction management and operation for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing sectors. The company's products include LUCKINSlive.com, Enterprise Estimating, ProDesign, NES and ArtrA.

The integration of Amtech's software solutions with Trimble's office and field solutions will enable what the companies have described as a compelling set of dedicated MEP workflows and productivity solutions for MEP contractors and engineers.

Trimble's focus is on the deployment of integrated solutions for the construction and engineering community from initial engineering and bidding projects to construction and project completion. Trimble's Design-Build-Operate (DBO) vision extends the concept from estimating and design to project management and field solutions for installation.

The financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

"With the addition of Amtech, Trimble continues to reinforce its goal of providing a complete portfolio of building construction solutions while strengthening our commitment to meet the unique needs of the European MEP market," said Pat Bohle, general manager of Trimble's MEP Division. "Amtech's strength lies in its ability to offer localized content and pricing information combined with construction software while providing users with intuitive work processes for optimal efficiency and productivity in the office. In addition, Amtech provides Trimble the ability to expand its distribution channel in Europe to offer MEP contractor solutions."

Tim Holland, chief financial officer of Amtech, added: "Amtech's solutions are dedicated to improving the productivity of the building contractor and engineer. By combining Amtech's office solutions with Trimble's depth of worksite productivity solutions—including field layout, scanning, mobility and more—we are excited to provide an even greater integrated office workflow for the building contractor and engineer."

The Amtech business will be reported as part of Trimble's Engineering and Construction Segment.
