While our roots may exist in horizontal boring, early on we recognized a need for more complete solutions to the growing complexity of utility issues and became one of the first companies in the nation to combine engineering and directional drilling. Many of our projects still include boring, but we now offer a full suite of progressive programs for natural gas and electric distribution, communications, water/wastewater utilities and more.
VPI has a long history in electric distribution infrastructure. As we’ve grown, however, so have our capabilities. Today, the team is made up of a broad range of personnel to help clients map out projects from inception to completion. They include specialized engineers, excavation and directional drilling crews, field engineers, and our project managers who merge all of these skillsets into one cohesive unit.
