It’s National Surveyors Week!

The history of surveying in America begins in our own back yard. Everyone knows that George Washington was both a founding father of our country and a founding surveyor of Virginia. But did you know that his youngest brother, Charles, had surveying skills of his own and even mapped out the town that took his name? Charles Town (in what is now West Virginia) is a stone’s throw down the pike from Schonstedt’s Kearneysville headquarters, where we continue to develop new surveying tools and technology that the Washington brothers could only dream of.

A Salute to Vets

The men and women of the US military are the most disciplined, dedicated, and diverse workforce on earth. You won’t find them in the ranks of “the top 1 percent”. They don’t think of camouflage as streetwear. They don’t think of themselves as heroes, they just don’t want to be forgotten. So today, locate a veteran in your place of work and just say Thanks!

Dubai Exhibition a Great Success

In early October, Schonstedt proudly partnered with Glosys Electronics to attend the Water, Energy, Technology, and Environmental Exhibition (WETEX) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The event attracted 1,900 exhibitors from 46 countries, and over 22,600 people attended the event from 65 countries. We showcased our Magnetic and Pipe/Cable Locators and discussed issues related to water conservation and building a sustainable environment.
