Norman, OK – September 1, 2016 — Global weather risk and analytics leader Weather Decision Technologies, Inc.® (WDT) announces completion of its acquisition of Frontier Weather, Inc.®, based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Frontier Weather, established in 2003, is a leading long-range weather data provider and analytics visualization company with deep ties to the energy and utilities industry as well as agriculture, among other disciplines.
“We are pleased with the acquisition of Frontier Weather, to further complement our SkyWise® weather data and WeatherOps® decision support system offerings. In Frontier Weather, we saw an experienced management team with deep domain expertise and a robust technology background validated by many customers of theirs in the Fortune 500,” says Mike Eilts, President & CEO at WDT.
The Standard & Poor Global 100 Index reports that 90 percent of companies identify extreme weather and climate change as a current or future business risk. WDT meets this challenge head-on. Already at the forefront of weather risk mitigation, the addition of Frontier Weather means both company’s clients will be rewarded with longer lead-times and more actionable information.
Frontier Weather owner Stephen Strum shared his thoughts on the acquisition: “We are excited to join the WDT family.
