Wachendorff Elektronik to become Topcon Electronics


Wachendorff Elektronik is to become Topcon Electronics & Co. from April 1, 2017.

Apart from the name change and a renaming of its website to www.topcon-electronics.com, everything concerning the company’s business, including its legal status, the value-added tax number, bank details and contact information, will all remain unchanged.

Wachendorff Elektronik is a manufacturer of in-cabin mounted consoles for the industrial vehicle market in the agricultural and construction industries. The company was established in 1985 and Peter Wachendorff, president and CEO of Wachendorff Elektronik and Wachendorff Electronics, said, “We are happy to have the opportunity to join the Topcon family — this will help us expand the offering of products to our customers.

“Nothing will change in our core capabilities with this name change. We will remain true on our products, markets and strategic orientation.”
