Located in Corvallis, OR, the company was originally founded as Tripod Data Systems in 1987 to develop products for the Survey industry. Acquired by Trimble Navigation in 2000, we were re-named Trimble MCS in 2009. Our manufacturing process was ISO 9001 certified in 2008.
Trimble MCS is an innovation leader. Our products include the first rugged computer with Windows CE (the Ranger, in 2000), and the smallest rugged handheld (the Recon, in 2003). We continue to provide industry-leading technology applications with the new smartphone inspired Juno T41 (released in August, 2012).
At Trimble MCS, our vision is simple: meet market needs through technology. We continue to build on our strengths in positioning, sensing and measuring, and display and power consumption, emphasizing smart industrial design, an enhanced user experience and continually improving interfaces.
