Our Mission Statement

Kodiak Measurement Services Inc. provides high precision industrial metrology services to a wide range of industries in Western Canada.


With over 30 years of experience in the precision measurement field, we are proud to be considered one of the premier providers of high accuracy 3-dimensional metrology solutions.


Using state-of-the-art portable 3-dimensional measurement tools such as laser trackers, laser scanners and imaging total stations, we gather large volumes of data that is presented graphically on 3-D metrology software for in-process analysis and reporting of the alignment conditions enabling real time corrections to be made without the need for further offsite treatment of the data.

About Us

Robert Simmerling P.Eng. formed Kodiak Measurement Services Inc. in February 1995 to provide professional industrial metrology services to all types of industries using state-of-the-art, optical and laser alignment systems. Kodiak owns a full compliment of Leica industrial surveying equipment, which combined with Spatial Analyzer software forms a mobile, intelligent, industrial 3D measuring system. In 2006 Kodiak expanded to become one of the first companies in Western Canada to provide terrestrial scanning. Today with the advent of imaging total stations the company can combine conventional measurements and laser scanning to produce accurate geometric models of complex and difficult shapes to see how they conform to design. Some of the companies Kodiak provides precision alignment services to include: BC Hydro, LNS Services, Weyerhaeuser, BC Ferries, Teck Metals, Teck Resources, Alberta Newsprint, Victoria Shipyards, Dept. of National Defence, RCMP, Canfor, Manitoba Hydro, Kruger Products, FortisBC, Rolls Royce Energy Systems, TOLKO, Ramsay Machine Works, Klohn Crippen, Peter Kiewit Sons, GE Voith Hydro, SNC-Lavalin, Vancouver Ship Yards, Victoria Shipyards, Pacific Coast Terminals, Westshore Terminals, Neptune Terminals and Brymark. Kodiak prides itself in providing timely, accurate dimensioning services which often requires custom targeting and novel measuring techniques to yield the necessary results our customers demand. We operate under the principle that the job comes first with the theory that “fast is fine, but accuracy is everything”. Safety is paramount, we take it seriously and are members of multiple pre-qualification companies including ComplyWorks, ISNetworld and Avetta.

What People Are Saying

Thank you for the timely response to our recent shaft alignments and shiploader surveying. As always, a pleasure to have you on our site and provide quality, professional work to see our projects are successful.

Shawn MorganManager of Maintenance - Neptune Terminals

Just wanted to thank you guys. We installed the second tank today and they both fit great. I don’t think we could have done it without your help.

Myles ShafferSenior Chargehand - Victoria Shipyards

Many thanks for the effort from you and your team on our recent shutdown. The success we were able to achieve with the trunnion bases and so many in-field modifications are thanks to your team working so well with Riteway.
