Each year, Premier Pipe USA chooses crews for local, regional and national recognition with the selection process involving a careful review of each installation crew’s performance, safety record and communication.
While Premier Pipe believes every CIPP installation crew is eligible for special awards, only a few select can be named CIPP Crew of the Year. For 2009, Premier Pipe has selected the following crews for the outstanding work they did during the past year:
