The Wightman story of land survey excellence stretches back to our founding in 1946. Over more than 70 years, we have built a legacy of precision work that has shaped decades of residential, commercial, utility, and industrial land development throughout southwest Michigan and northern Indiana for our neighbors and friends. Our surveyors are among the most respected in the region, licensed to perform your survey work in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Texas. We are also pre-qualified by the Michigan Department of Transportation for road design survey work.
