Trimble has selected Maschmedt & Associates to work with outdoor retailers in 17 western states to sell a new retail line of off-the-grid mapping products for the outdoors market.
The new products include statewide Topo Maps on SD cards and the Trimble Outdoors Elite subscription service. Both products allow users to view topo maps, public and private land boundaries, and other helpful map layers without a cellular or data connection.
“Maschmedt brings decades of retail knowledge to the table. Their experience and relationships with retailers—both large and small—will help us grow our retail footprint, build strong merchandising programs and train retail associates on the floor,” said Kris Wagner, marketing director for Trimble Outdoors.
Based in Renton, Washington, Maschmedt & Associates will act as an independent sales representative for Trimble Outdoors’ off-the-grid mapping products in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. They will focus on specialty retail shops in addition to outdoor chain stores.
“We are really excited about our new relationship with Trimble,” said Don Maschmedt of Maschmedt & Associates. “Trimble provides a great new technology that changes the way outdoor enthusiasts use mobile phones and tablets as GPS devices. It’s exactly the type of innovative products that we look for in a new partner and we are excited to help Trimble bring them to the outdoor market.”
