FOUR RETAIL LOCATIONS TO SERVE YOU
Oklahoma City, OK
Construction "GPS Technology down to earth..."
Next time you wish upon a star in the nighttime sky, you might consider the impact of Ozark Laser & Shoring, a seven year old company that has emerged as a national leader in Laser and Global Positioning technologies.
Already one of the top five dealers in both North and South America for Topcon Positioning Systems, Ozark Laser & Shoring sells, rents, and services the equipment contractors use to meet precise specifications on the jobsite. Relying on 24 U.S. satellites and 20 Russian satellites to establish location on the ground, Ozark Laser can position contractors for success with pinpoint accuracy. This technology helps determine reference points to within fractions of an inch. Ozark Laser and Shoring has supplied Topcon equipment used in such landmark projects as Hammons Field, home of the Springfield Cardinals, where a perfectly flat field was made possible by installing an intricate drainage system using laser-guided machine control automation.
Ozarks Laser also equipped contractors building the $350 million Branson Landing development project as well as Branson Hills Parkway, connecting U.S. 65 with Highway 248. Many of the Ozarks' latest and largest developments have used the accuracy and time savings made possible by GPS and laser equipment.
Ozark Laser & Shoring has earned the designation as master dealer for Topcon Positioning Systems serving Southwest Missouri, Northwest Arkansas, Southeast Kansas, and Oklahoma.
Company President Ryan Zweerink, a Willard native and 1994 graduate of Missouri State University, quickly recognized the potential of Lasers, GPS and machine control automation in construction. Ryan and his partner started their company to maximize their impact on the development boom throughout much of the Ozarks. The company has grown from two to 26 employees.
Today Ozark Laser has five facilities, including Springfield, Missouri; Springdale, Arkansas; and three more in Oklahoma, including Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and a one-of-a-kind training facility in nearby Meeker. Utilizing Ozark Laser's hands-on outdoor training facility, customers eliminate wasted time and money by learning the GPS and machine control systems at their facility, instead of on the job.
The "stakless site" easily eliminates time waiting for surveyors to stake out a project, therefore, construction moves along much more rapidly. Self-performing developers can also advance their construction timelines through GPS technology. Excavators using laser-leveling systems can determine precisely their earth-moving alternatives and trenching assignments, thereby taking on more work.
Customers often ask us, why should we buy from you?
The answer is not that we represent the number one product in the world or that we have five locations to serve you. The fact is that we do one thing better than our competitors and that is training. We know that the quickest way for our business partners to get their return on investment, is to educate and empower your crews with the knowledge to get the job done. That's the Ozark Laser difference! When we put our business model together over seven years ago, we made significant investments in our training programs. Today, we are recognized as one of the top three dealers in all of North and South America for Topcon Positioning Systems. We were able to achieve our goals by investing in our own state-of-the-art training facility complete with a real jobsite that simulates what your crews face everyday. We purchased our own motor grader with complete automation including 2D sonic and laser controls, as well as all 3D-GPS systems and hardware.
And now, take a look at our sister company, U.S. Photonics, Inc., offering state-of-the-art laser solutions in nanotechnology research and development for the biomedical and defense industries.
Shield Step ladder is a patented, OSHA approved design to safely getting in and out of trench shields and excavations. No longer take a chance to have a ladder slip along a shield wall or tilt unexpectedly on an uneven muddy footing. The Shield Step hangs over the side of the trench shield wall and uses the weight of the worker climbing on it to secure it into place. Not only does the Shield Step ladder adjust to fit over trench shields of different thicknesses (up to 8in thick!), but with 48 inch, 36 inch, 24 inch, and 12 inch extensions you can adjust Shield Step to just the right depth.
