Getmapping Acquires Promap Civil Engineering

Jul 22, 2014 -- As part of its continued expansion into Africa, Getmapping has acquired Promap Civil Engineering Surveys (Pty) Ltd, based in Pretoria. Promap is a leading supplier of aerial and ground survey services across Southern Africa.

 

The acquisition complements Getmapping’s existing wholly owned African subsidiary, Geosense, by increasing the aerial LiDAR survey capacity within the group. The acquisition of Promap also adds a fixed-wing survey aircraft plus large format LiDAR and an established ground survey team to the group’s capabilities. 
 
Under the new arrangements, Geosense’s offices in Centurion will be expanded to accommodate additional production and sales resources. The acquisition increases the number of employees based in Centurion to 19. The Centurion office will remain Geosense’s centre of helicopter-based flight operations and the focus of the company’s extensive LiDAR processing capability. All fixed wing operations and the ground survey team will continue to work out of Pretoria as Promap Civil Engineering Surveys. 
 
The Getmapping Group now has four offices in Africa - Cape Town, Centurion, Pretoria and Nairobi. 
 
“The acquisition of Promap considerably increases our capacity and reach across Africa,” said Dave Horner, Managing Director of Getmapping. “Promap has been operating since 1996 and has extensive experience in Southern Africa, which will help us to expand our market reach. It also adds fixed wing aerial and ground survey services to our in-house capabilities. We now provide a complete survey solution with a mix of helicopter, fixed wing and ground survey, and this acquisition increases both our capability and capacity. We now have a large and experienced team in place to take our South African operations to the next level,” continued Horner.
