State Pipe Services Inc., a Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania-based sewer infrastructure inspection and rehabilitation contractor, announced that its founding owner, Frank M. Burns was retiring after 47 years in the business.
According to the press release, Burns and his wife Marylin intend to take it easy and “travel with the wind to spend time with their friends, children, grandchildren and their ever growing brood of great-grandchildren.”
In 1971 starting with no more than a vision, a strong back, some second-hand equipment and one paying customer, Burns saw and acted on the opportunity to provide pipe inspection, pipe cleaning and new pipe installations. He also introduced trenchless rehabilitation to the antiquated and growing Western Pennsylvania municipal sanitary sewer infrastructure.
Today State Pipe Services Inc. continues to be a leader in the municipal sewer infrastructure inspection and rehabilitation industry. The company is a member of both NASSCO and NUCA and has more than 60 dedicated and well-seasoned employees. The company operates a fleet of state of the art CCTV inspection and sewer cleaning trucks, HDPE pipe bursting equipment, and a forte of trenchless installations.
State Pipe Services will now be led into the future by Burns’ trusted friend and business colleague Tom Morris and his three children Scott Burns, Dave Burns and Amy Orr.
The press release closes, “Frank, thank you for your dedication to your community, employees, suppliers and valued customers and may you have a long and enjoyable retirement.”
