The offices in Detroit and Lansing will add to the existing geospatial offices Seiler operates in St. Louis, Kansas City, Omaha, Milwaukee and Indianapolis.

Tom Seiler, Executive Vice President, along with Jim Driftmyer, have worked to ensure a smooth transition of the Michigan Surveyors Supply team for customers and staff.

“Both companies and families have benefited and achieved success through our legacies of hard work, honest and ethical treatment of our customers and employees,” Driftmyer said.
