Last week, Leica Geosystems’ parent company Hexagon announced an agreement to acquire the Spatial Systems division of Loyola Enterprises Inc., the segment of the company that sells and services Leica HDS 3D laser scanners and software. Headquartered in Richmond, Va., Loyola’s Spatial Systems division distributes and services the states of Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C. The division also operates its own GPS Reference Station Network, RTK-Net, providing high-precision differential correction services to a wide range of users and applications. In a statement, Ken Mooyman, CEO and president of Leica Geosystems, NAFTA, said Loyola Spatial Systems’ operational infrastructure will be consolidated into Allen Precision Equipment (APE) in Duluth, Ga., which Leica acquired in May 2007.
