The Vortex Companies LLC announced its acquisition of North American Pipeline Services LLC (NAP). The deal will significantly expand its trenchless infrastructure service capabilities in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
“This completion of this acquisition is a big step toward our vision of providing trenchless services in this region where the need for infrastructure rehabilitation has never been greater,” said Mike Vellano, CEO, Vortex Companies.
Originally based in Lakewood, New Jersey, NAP was founded in 1974 where the three-person company focused on underground utilities before Tom Mullen purchased the company in 2012. Through his guidance, the company began offering CCTV inspection and trenchless rehabilitation services. NAP presently employs 55 people and is considered one of the largest pipe rehabilitation contractors in the tri-state area.
“We’ve had great working relationship with Vortex Companies over the years and share the same vision of delivering high-level service and permanent repair solutions through our trenchless products and applications,” said Mullen, owner and managing partner at NAP. “As part of Vortex, we will have added resources and experience that will allow us to further expand our service offerings to support our commercial and municipal customers’ needs.”
Now located in Freehold, New Jersey, NAP is the tri-state area’s premier water and sewer service provider for both the private and public sectors. NAP now covers the full spectrum of pipework from traditional sewer and stormwater maintenance programs to a full range of trenchless services including CCTV inspection and cleaning, pipe bursting, manhole rehabilitation, CIPP lining and large diameter geopolymer pipe to deliver cost-effective long-term solutions. NAP also offers hydro-excavation, open excavation site work, pipe and structure repairs and installations.
