RDO Integrated Controls Continues Growth of TopNETlive in Minnesota
FARGO, ND RDO Integrated Controls, a division of RDO Equipment Co., completed its fourth Topcon TopNETlive network station in the Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, area, increasing coverage to 80 percent of the Twin Cities metro area. Additionally, RDO Integrated Controls has expanded the network to Duluth, International Falls, Mankato, Marshall, Moorhead, Rochester, and Virginia, Minnesota.
Since the initial expansion of the TopNETlive Network into Minnesota earlier this year, RDO Integrated Controls has added and activated 15 network stations across the state. Adam Gilbertson, RDO Integrated Controls General Manager, says he's proud of his team's efforts to grow the network and offer customers access to the largest, most reliable network in the country.
"There isn't another network out there with the national coverage, reliability, and accuracy in machine control as offered with TopNETlive," Gilbertson said. "We're continuing our expansion to provide customers real-time network coverage for machine control across Minnesota."
TopNETlive is a network cooperative managed by Topcon Positioning Systems and its global dealer network. The unique nature of this cooperative enables clients and users the opportunity to invest in the network. Those who choose to do so receive benefits from the cooperative that enable them to recoup their initial investment in less than three years, and maintain the benefits as long as their reference stations are active in the network.
"Our goal is to continue growth and expansion in Minnesota, and have 100 percent of the Twin Cities metro area covered by spring 2017," Gilbertson said. "We welcome all customers interested in joining the network and expanding the co-op opportunity to."
