Houston – Measurement Devices Limited introduced their new Technical Services Division with the addition of several laser scanning veterans to serve the U.S., Central, and South American markets. The company announced that Jonathan White joined the company to spearhead the Americas division of the new division. It was created to empower customers by providing access to MDL technology and expertise through hardware and software support, as well as through knowledge transfer. White’s primary role will be to manage product technical support, training and integrated consulting operations.
White is a well-known 3D laser scanning veteran with more
than a decade of experience in project management, hardware and software
development and workflow implementation. His early years in the industry were
spent testing hemispherical scanning systems and user interface applications as
well as training customers in field data capture and post processing
operations. He has also consulted for numerous large scale contracts across the
globe and managed hundreds of laser scanning projects across multiple
industries including oil and gas, nuclear, architectural, civil Infrastructure,
mining and historical preservation.
As head of technical services, White will provide technical
expertise to support the firm's existing core business as an equipment
manufacturer, and in its new direction, as a complete support solutions
provider of equipment rentals, consultation and training. White says, “We’re
really just aiming to strengthen the capabilities of our customers and the
LiDAR industry as a whole by narrowing the knowledge gap for end users.
Practical experience is the best way to gain an understanding of the strengths
and limitations of laser measurement technology, and we’re assembling a team of
what we believe to be the best and brightest in this business. Many firms out
there don’t share best practices with others in the industry, but we see that
as a hindrance to industry growth which would ultimately benefit us all.
Customers come to us for a no-nonsense approach to knowledge transfer and we’re
happy to provide those services.”
Also joining MDL’s Technical Services Division in the Americas
are Product Specialists Joshua Feemster and Phil Barker. Both professionals
carry an extensive background in terrestrial 3D laser scanning across a broad
range of industries including oil and gas, civil infrastructure, architecture,
construction management, topographic surveys, nuclear, mining, BIM and
historical preservation. Feemster and Barker will bolster the MDL product line
through enhanced technical support, training and consultation services while
also drawing from their terrestrial scanning background to help MDL extend its
global support network into new and emerging markets.
Chief Operating Officer Travis Reinke stated, “We are very
excited to have Jonathan, Josh and Phil join our firm. I have a great deal of
respect for these gentlemen and their knowledge of the industry. Our goal is to
boost MDL’s technical capabilities by building a team of LiDAR industry experts
that can provide added value to our customers and partners. We are looking to
employ the best of the best… and this is a great start.”
