OTM was founded in 2011 by four principals each having over 25 years of experience in the gas & utility industry. The company’s competency foundation was in underground utility locating. We specialized in locating Customer Owned & Maintained (COM) underground utilities such as gas, electric, cable/TV, telephone, fiber optics communications, water, sewer/sanitary/ storm, and more.
We located cable & pipes, empty ducts, metal valve boxes, fuel tanks, conduits, and other buried objects using a variety of state-of-the-art Radio Frequency (RF) based equipment and instruments as well as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR).
Although private utility locating was our start and foundation, we quickly realized that our opportunities for growth and additional value contribution to the community resided in the utility management services. Hence, since 2013, we have expanded our services to include services such as damage prevention program, cathodic protection, damage prevention vehicles, independent utility auditing, damage investigation, and more.
