December 2012 – Stakemill has achieved the status of being SECO and Crains Second Biggest dealer in the Americas this year. We order more product in a thirty-day period than both of our Florida competition does in a 90 days period combined. How do we know that? Our rep and their boss call us and inform us of these accomplishments. Not bad for someone who was supposed to be a temporary swelling about four years ago, not only were we able to land the sales but to also sustain the business as well for years. Stakemill is Floridas oldest survey stake producer.

2012 STAKEMILL is the Top Dealer for Sokkia Survey Supplies in Florida, we are in the Top 10 of all Dealers in the US. As one of Florida’s newest Sokkia dealers we are proud of that fact, so much that with other dealers resting on their laurels from 10 and 20 years ago we were able to concentrate on what customers want today and move to the front of the list. We are excited these other dealers have taken their eye off the ball and are not catering to their customers needs, this once again shows their poor management skills in an ever-changing industry.
STAKEMILL has chosen Spectra Precision for our Total Stations, Robotics, GPS, GIS, Optical Levels, Transits, Theodolites and Rotary Lasers. The simple fact Stakemill sells more products under the Trimble umbrella such as Nikon, Seco, Crain, Apache, Spectra Precision and Visual Statements it was the wise choice for two strong leaders in the survey industry and Florida market to team up.
