Rajant Corporation, a leading provider of wireless mining solutions, announce that it has entered into a reseller agreement with Utah-based Wheeler Machinery Co. (Wheeler) to distribute and support its BreadCrumb® wireless mesh communications product line.
“We are very excited to partner with a member of the Caterpillar dealer network. We believe this agreement will offer Rajant the opportunity to reach many new mining and construction customers while providing Wheeler’s world-class support,” said Gary Anderson, Senior Vice President of Mining for Rajant. “Wheeler is an institution built from a history of experience, product knowledge, and an intense desire to serve its customers. It is obvious that customer satisfaction is the most important aspect of their business philosophy.”
In business more than fifty-seven years and headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, Wheeler has thirteen regional branch offices serving all of Utah and regions of Arizona, Nevada and Wyoming. As a member of the exclusive Caterpillar worldwide dealer network, Wheeler will be a key partner in the sales, delivery, installation, training and support of Rajant BreadCrumb® networks. Primary customers will include both mining and construction companies.
The Rajant network is composed of BreadCrumb® devices that form a wireless, meshed, self -healing network for fleet management, health monitoring and other critical mining and construction applications such as Caterpillar’s Vital Information Management System (VIMS), asset management, condition monitoring, operator communication and dispatch. Many vehicles and workers that require wireless communications are constantly on the move throughout the mining network. The Rajant network’s BreadCrumb® nodes can rapidly adapt to any changes in the network topology, assuring that IP traffic uptime and bandwidth are maximized. Operators of mining and construction companies directly benefit from the Rajant network by an increase in operational efficiency and lower operating costs, saving them money.
“Wheeler is very proud to be an authorized Rajant reseller,” said Todd Rigby, General Manager, Equipment Management Division, of Wheeler Machinery Co. “The Rajant BreadCrumb® solution has helped mining and construction companies become safer and much more efficient with their operations. We are excited about the opportunity to utilize Rajant’s BreadCrumbs as part of technology solutions we offer to our customers. We believe this technology will prove to be a true competitive advantage to those companies who choose to implement it.”
