Formed in Helena, MT in 1993 the company began installing Cured-in-Place Manhole (CIPM) lining systems in 1997.  We’ve solved infrastructure problems in Florida, Georgia, Virginia, Alabama, Texas, Colorado, Nevada, California, Arizona, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Alaska, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, Alberta, and Ontario.


We have extensive experience with unique and diverse situations, including but not limited to manholes, square structures, deep wetwells and lift stations, culverts, remote installations and heavy infiltration and deterioration problems.  One of our projects was featured in the June 2003 edition of Trenchless Technology magazine -- titled “City of Ottawa, Ontario Uses Cured-In-Place Lining to Rehabilitate Sanitary Sewer Access Structures”.  Other accomplishments include completing very environmentally sensitive projects for the National Park Service in Yellowstone National Park as well as the Lake Mead and Lake Mohave National Recreation Areas in Nevada and Arizona and at the bottom of the cave in Carlsbad Caverns National Park.  As a result of those projects, we are the preferred method and installer of choice with the Park Service in those areas for future sewer rehabilitation.


Over the past quarter century we’ve successfully completed projects from Key West, FL to Barrow, Alaska and from the Vegas Strip to the Jersey Shore and countless places in between with the toughest, most permanent cured-in-place fiberglass liners.
