October 30, 2020 – Ultara Holdings completed the sale of it’s Precise Machinery Business Unit to Mr. Billy Tucker, a 25+ year industry veteran and long-standing team member of Ultara Holdings and GeoShack.
Billy is retiring from Ultara Holdings today: October 30, 2020, and will now be the sole proprietor of Precise Machinery Company.
Billy started his laser/GPS/machine control career in the mid-nineties, first with Topcon, then starting a Topcon dealership in North Texas. Southwest Laser and Machine Control was formed in January of 1998 with his longtime friend and business partner, Lowell Holder. Southwest Laser and Machine Control was then acquired by GeoShack in October of 2004, as part of GeoShack’s transition from Trimble to Topcon.
Most recently, Billy has served as the General Manager for Ultara’s Precise Machinery brand, which he started for Ultara Holdings over a year ago, as the exclusive distributor of the ABI Force, and he sees the value in the brand. As Mr. Tucker moves to the next chapter of his life, he and his wife Karen, are acquiring Precise Machinery Company from Ultara Holdings and will take the company private. He looks forward to leading PMC to bigger and better things as a new venture for the entire Tucker family. PMC will remain associated with INTEQ distributors and GeoShack to distribute Topcon 3DMC and Futtura 2DMC to the sports field markets in Texas.
