Since 1984, R.S. Technical Services, Inc. (rstechserv.com) has been a leader in the design and manufacture of robotic video inspection equipment used to monitor and repair municipal water and wastewater collection and conveyance systems, mainly pipelines too small to allow man entry. Its systems are designed around a unique technology that incorporates all power and control functions into a single conductor, making its equipment more reliable and safer to use than competing solutions.

Subsite Electronics (subsite.com), a Charles Machine Works company, manufacturers utility locators and horizontal directional drilling (HDD) guidance systems. The RST acquisition adds proven remote video inspection capabilities to Subsite’s line of underground awareness solutions. Employee-owned Charles Machine Works, founded in 1902 in Perry, Oklahoma, has several brands and divisions, and is perhaps best known for its Ditch Witch brand of HDD and trenching equipment.
