OMI Infrared is an Ohio company founded in 2013 and based in the northwest corner of the state. The main focus of OMI Infrared is infrared inspection for preventive and predictive maintenance for industrial, commercial, utilities and residential use.
The use of an infrared inspection not only helps increase reliability but will also assist in reducing energy and maintenance costs.
As part of our program, we also offer testing for the effects of motor shaft currents. These induced currents greatly reduce the life of your motor bearings.
OMI Infrared, LLC, is owned and operated by Craig Preston, an Infraspection Institute Level III Certified Thermographer. In addition to being a Level III Certified Thermographer, Mr. Preston also possesses an earned degree in Electromechanical Engineering. Over the years I have worked as:

For more than 17 years prior to OMI Infrared I worked with a municipal utility system. My responsibilities included managing a power plant with 4 fossil fuel generators. At this time, my primary focus was the reliability of the generating units that ranged in size from 2.5 megawatts to 19 megawatts.
I was project manager of the rehabilitation of a 5 megawatt hydroelectric plant and the construction of a distribution substation.
During this time I was also the operations manager of the entire utility. Beside power production, the utility consisted of electric distribution, water treatment and distribution and a telecommunications system
It is clear from the above positions which I have held that OMI Infrared is well-suited to providing you with knowledgeable and reliable service.
