Largest U.S. aerial data solution provider now has local presence in Cincinnati, Dayton & Columbus markets

CINCINNATI, OH (November 14, 2017) –Measure, the largest U.S. provider of drone services for enterprise customers, has expanded its local presence to Ohio with a new franchise location serving the Cincinnati, Dayton and Columbus markets. Headquartered in Loveland, the local Measure office provides businesses in the construction, real estate, telecommunications and energy industries with drone-based infrastructure inspections that are faster, safer and less expensive than manned solutions.“We felt that the Ohio market lacked options when it came to commercial drone services, especially as it pertains to inspections for enterprise organizations that want to improve their processes and reduce risk to their workforce,” said Carrie Seddon, Vice President of Measure Ohio. “We saw a gap and are excited to fill it for our community through the Measure franchise.”Key services available from Measure Ohio include:

  • Pre-construction surveys of new sites, monitoring of construction progress, and stockpile and earthworks measurements at a fraction of the cost of traditional survey methods
  • Commercial roof and window inspections using infrared cameras to identify moisture intrusion and air leaks
  • Aerial inspections of cell tower structures and wireless carrier equipment installed on them, providing a 360-degree view not available with physical tower climbs
  • Volumetric analysis to measure raw material stockpiles in coal-fired power plants for inventory management purposes

Each industry-specific solution was developed by Measure’s corporate team, proven through thousands of completed missions, and standardized to ensure safe, legal and insured flights as well as accurate data capture. The Ohio franchise utilizes all of the parent company’s processes and procedures as well as its best-in-class drone technology, giving businesses in south and central Ohio local access to the expertise of the leading national drone services team.“Part of my background includes infrared inspections of commercial rooftops for moisture issues. When I discovered that infrared cameras could be attached to drones and eliminate the risks of climbing roofs at night, I knew it was a game changer that could also benefit other kinds of businesses,” said Joel Lundeen, President and Chief Pilot of Measure Ohio, who holds both sUAS Level I Thermographer and FAA sUAS Part 107 remote pilot certificates. “Partnering with Measure gives me the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of an industry that is fundamentally changing the optimization of certain kinds of business processes.”“Our franchise program is designed to bring our national drone services capabilities to key geographic markets that have a critical mass of businesses in need of improved infrastructure inspection strategies,” said Dan Rothfeld, Measure Senior Vice President of Franchising. “Joel and Carrie give us an important beachhead in south and central Ohio, advancing our efforts to build a nationwide franchise network that can build face-to-face relationships with local businesses needing our services.”To contact Measure Ohio, visit www.measure.com/oh or call (513) 516-7574.
