ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

An Israeli company announced a plan to expand into St. Louis Friday.

Guy Weitzman, the head Atomation says his company will be monitoring utility poles for Ameren with small remote sensors. The sensors will alert them is the poles are failing or damaged.

The hope is to create a few dozen jobs.

Weitzman says the idea is that the company targets agriculture, industrial, medical supply chains and utility companies for ways to connect objects to the internet.

“St. Louis is one of the leading territories that has a lot of potential and many kinds of businesses dealing in these kind of segments,” said Weitzman.

Weitzman said his company chose St. Louis because of Global STL, which is part of Bio STL. Bio STL acts as a go-between to connect business with decision makers in the St. Louis.
