Hydromax USA Acquires Miller Pipetech to Better Serve its Eastern Region Clients
April 11, 2018 by NASTT Staff
EVANSVILLE, IN – March 19, 2018 – Hydromax USA is pleased to announce that it has acquired Miller Pipetech, an environmental services company specializing in pipeline condition assessment for wastewater and natural gas utilities.
The acquisition of Miller Pipetech’s technical service division will enable Hydromax USA to increase its capacity to deliver on its high-demand, suite of service solutions for both critical gas cross bore identification and sewer condition infrastructure assessment programs. Throughout the country, cross bores continue to be a cause of concern as more and more stakeholders are addressing the problem and associated risks. Cross bores, unintended intersections of utilities, pose a threat to public safety and industry workers alike. All types of cross bores can cause damage, however the intersection of natural gas lines in sewer pipes are considered the highest threats. In addition, aging sewer infrastructure coupled with limited financial resources continues to further the need for utilities to understand the current state of buried sewer infrastructure in order to maximize their use of funds on rehabilitation.
This acquisition will strengthen Hydromax USA’s footprint in the Eastern and Midwestern United States, enabling Hydromax to extend the capabilities of its state-of-the-art Louisville Data Center to current clientele of Miller Pipetech. Louisville’s data center provides end client solutions and support to our clientele nationwide, delivering unmatched project quality assurance through our 100% audit approach; key program and infrastructure insights through our web-based business intelligence platforms; management, analysis, and integration of terabytes of program information into client information systems; and technical support of our field operations nationwide.
“The completion of this acquisition opens new opportunities for our clients, our employees and the communities in which we serve,” said Jeff Griffiths, Director, East Region for Hydromax USA. “We are very excited to begin to introduce our enhanced services to the Miller Pipetech client network and we look forward to a smooth transition as we add Miller Pipetech’s technical service assets and experienced personnel to our team.”
