In Fiscal 2006, the Sunnyvale, California–based positioning technology company reported revenues of $940.2 million and net income of $103.7 million.

“Trimble achieved a number of milestones in 2007, including that of becoming a billion dollar revenue company,” said Steven Berglund, Trimble’s chief executive officer. “Our future success remains centered on continuous innovation, aggressive expansion into international markets, and executing at a world class level for our users.”

Despite a slower U.S. construction market, Berglund predicted that Trimble could grow revenue by 14 to 17 percent in 2008 based on continued strength in international markets, a strong agriculture market, and “achieving the potential within our Mobile Solutions segment.”

As usual, the company’s engineering and construction business led the growth, with revenues of $743.3 million, up 17 percent compared to 2006. Trimble’s field solutions business produced 2007 revenue of $200.6 million, up approximately 44 percent; mobile solutions revenue was $157.7 million, and advanced devices revenue, $120.7 million, up approximately 17 percent.
