    Default Olameter

    A company that I am being told is American has come into our region and taken our gas and hydro contracts. I was wondering if anyone has any info on Olameter as now I am torn as to where to go work. I love working with Canadian Locators Inc, but would love to know more on this new company.

    Thanks in advance.

    Olameter has Canadian roots. They own a couple locate and meter reading companies up there. They came from Canada and moved into the US by buying Unibar (now DPG/Damage Prevention Group). They also owned AccuRead meter readers for a long time in the US also

    They also own Teldig which appears to be the first company to make software for utility locating tickets.

    We have heard that very thing from a lot of diff. people all over the US but they have been in business now for more than 10 years locating and such so to me that says something about the company overall.
    wise men talk because they have something to say and fools because they have to say something....plato

    The 10yrs is only because of the contract they have in Wisconsin, which is up this year. The low wages and crappy insurance, since most of their employees are in Canada make this place not worth working for.

    I believe it was Olameter that made, or implemented, the first computer program for the locator's tickets.
