Müller-Elektronik merges with Trimble Inc.
Extending Precision Agriculture Capabilities from the Vehicle to the Implement
Müller-Elektronik recently announced a merger with Trimble Inc., one of the world’s leading companies for GPS technologies. This merger provides global perspectives for the development and marketing of innovative ISOBUS solutions for manufacturers and the retrofit market.
Müller is a key contributor in the development of the ISOBUS communication protocol, which allows one terminal to control several implements and machines, regardless of manufacturer. ISOBUS standardizes the control settings, reduces downtime and minimizes installation and interface challenges, simplifying data exchange and machine control. The implement control solutions developed by Müller have now become widely adopted by leading agriculture OEMs and aftermarket channels.
Combining the technology and strengths of Trimble and Müller will enable the development of new and exciting solutions for farmers worldwide, who often struggle to integrate and use disparate hardware and software products across various brands of agricultural equipment. The addition of Müller-Elektronik will enable the creation of an ecosystem where farmers, advisors and retailers can easily build field prescriptions and transfer that prescription to the implement, enabling farmers to more easily adopt precision agriculture solutions.
“Trimble is a leading provider of precision agriculture hardware and farm management software. Bringing Trimble together with Müller’s leading ISOBUS solutions will create an industry-changing opportunity to deliver a system- wide integration that is uniquely available through the combination of the companies,” said Christian Müller, managing director for Müller-Elektronik.
