Following the theft confirmation of a £50K Komatsu excavator this morning, we triggered the Automatrics tracking unit into alarm to confirm a GPS position near Scunthorpe. Humberside police were directed to an Automatrics GPS tracker reporting location at the back of a storage yard. The machine was successfully located and returned back to the contractors site by 1pm.


The digger was also fitted with a Komtrax Telematics tracker which was disabled at the theft site. This Automatrics recovery clearly demonstrates key differences in the Automatrics and the Komtrax theft recovery performance.  Our customer understood these key differences in tracking technology for security needs so wisely invested in the Automatrics Police Approved and Thatcham Certified tracking system...     We await further updates on possible arrests.
