Leica Geosystems and Geomatic Resources Donate to Aid Oklahoma Tornado Victims Print E-mail
Written by Leica Geosystems   
Thursday, 23 May 2013

Companies hope to inspire others in surveying, engineering and construction to assist with the recovery efforts.

(Norcross, Ga., 24 May 2013) In the wake of the devastating tornado that tore through Moore, Okla., and surrounding neighborhoods on May 20, the Oklahoma Society of Land Surveyors (OSLS) issued a request for its members to support relief efforts. Leica Geosystems quickly responded by sending in a monetary donation through its regional dealer in Texas, Geomatic Resources, where Rodney Walsh, president and CEO was already working closely with his Oklahoma field representatives and customers to try to identify the most urgent needs.

“We are deeply saddened by the tragedy in Oklahoma and want to do what we can to help,” Walsh said. “We encourage all surveying, engineering and construction companies to donate and assist in the cleanup and recovery efforts.”

Ken Mooyman, president of Leica Geosystems Inc., agreed and said he hoped the leadership of OSLS, Geomatic Resources and Leica Geosystems would inspire other organizations to get involved.

“We are overwhelmed by the devastation caused by the tornado,” he said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who suffered loss of life and property as a result of this tragic event.”

A list of organizations that are accepting donations to assist the victims can be found on the OSLS website at http://www.osls.org/displaycommon.cfm?an=1&subarticlenbr=51.
