Hydro excavation contractors are experiencing great demand and competition right now, according to Richard Young, President and owner of Hydro Spy LLC.
Young founded Hydro Spy LLC in 2009 with business partner Jose Santos, vice-president of field operations. The company specializes in the surgical use of pressurized water in combination with a truck-mounted vacuum system to safely excavate underground utilities.
“When we first started, we were not very centralized,” says Young. “Dispatching was a constant feat. The acquisition of the Tatum Partners LTD facility is a huge step forward, allowing us to better serve our clients and employees by being more organized and efficient.”
Hydro Spy LLC closed the deal with Tatum Partners LTD in January 2012. The new property sits on 1.5 acres of secured, stabilized land with a 3,200-sq ft building.
“This is home-base for our hydrovac fleet. We are in a great place, close to the plants, refineries and pipeline right of ways that keep us busy. We look forward to another record year of growth and expansion, as we continue to increase our fleet of hydro excavators. This will obviously lead to more employment opportunities for the local economy. It’s always great to impact the community that way.”
Hydro Spy provides hydro excavation services throughout the continental United States and expects to hire as many as 10 new employees this year.
