Trimble’s core businesses are Building Construction and Operations, Civil Construction, Geospatial, Agriculture, and Transportation and Logistics. Trimble provides system solutions such as GNSS receivers, optical devices and machine guidance systems, as well as widely-used software and service solutions. Trimble’s interests are always found at the intersection of customer domain problems and technology.

Trimble provides information, insights and innovative technology to the companies that are reshaping the world—leveraging deep roots in geospatial positioning to collaborate with customers in multiple industries, delivering solutions for their complex problems. Trimble optimizes productivity, expands opportunity and enhances safety while preserving the environment. Trimble serves as a high-tech interpreter for multiple industries and diverse markets—inspired by the challenge of making the world a better place to work and live.

Building and Civil Construction and Operations

Trimble aims to connect construction projects - from design to build to operate, and across the many stakeholders that are involved. Areas of interest include project management, cost and progress estimation, BIM, site layout, architectural design, structural design, road and surface design, energy modeling, building performance analysis and facilities management. Trimble is focused on transforming the industry—increasing productivity, reducing waste and optimizing schedules, budgets and real estate portfolios—with powerful solutions that streamline communication and collaboration. These targeted solutions enable architects, engineers, contractors, owners, and occupiers to realize greater agility, efficiency and insight.  Some of the highlight centers for Europe include Espoo (near Helsinki) Finland where Tekla Structures is developed, Stuttgart Germany and Paris France for image analysis and photogrammetry, Oslo Norway for civil design, Leeds England for structural analysis and London, England for facilities management and energy use analysis.

The Geospatial business combines technologies from surveying, mapping and GIS, aerial data capture, UAS and mobile mapping, enabling workflows from field collection to finished deliverable. Hardware products range from GNSS, Total Stations, Laser Scanning, Rugged field computers to complex systems combining many sensors for airborne and mobile data capture. Whilst often recognized for field devices in this domain, Trimble has invested significantly in processing and analysis software and workflows that facilitate a complete solution with an emphasis on productivity and collaboration. Major centers for Trimble in this field include, Sunnyvale California (GNSS engineering), Danderyd Sweden (optical and imaging), Paris France (laser scanning & office software), Christchurch New Zealand (field and office software), Jena Germany (optical), Munich and Stuttgart (image processing software and photogrammetry), Biberach Germany (airborne and mobile systems), Westminster Colorado (Product Management and software engineering).
