Birmingham-based Command Alkon, a provider of a supplier collaboration platform for heavy construction work, has reached agreement to acquire Trimble’s construction logistics business. The deal is expected to close late this year.
“Command Alkon is committed to delivering solutions that digitize and innovate the heavy work industry, and this transaction delivers on that promise,” said Phil Ramsey, CEO at Command Alkon. “Consistent with our strategy, this acquisition will allow for more robust, lasting solutions and deliver valuable insights that drive increased efficiencies and improved decision-making across our customers’ fleets.”
“As we work on the execution of Trimble’s Connect and Scale 2025 strategy, we are continually evaluating our portfolio of businesses,” said Rob Painter, president and CEO of Trimble, which is based in Sunnyvale, California. “As we refocus our efforts on the company’s core construction capabilities, Command Alkon is an ideal fit for this opportunity with ready mix and aggregates business being key focus areas for their portfolio of offerings.”
Command Alkon provides technology solutions for heavy material suppliers, haulers and contractors in the heavy civil construction space.
Trimble’s construction logistics solutions provide ready-mix and aggregates delivery managers with tools to track, schedule, route and communicate across the fleet for efficient delivery of products, benefitting fleets with automated real-time vehicle location and status, turn-by-turn navigation, monitoring and diagnostics as well as business analytics and reporting.
