S&N President and CEO Allen Powell shares a message about where we’ve come, where we’re headed and getting it right.
Over the last five years, S&N has experienced amazing growth. Whether it’s in the number of locates we do each month (560,000+), the number of miles we travel each year (24,097,715) or the number of vehicles we have out on the road (1,179 at any given time), the outlook remains positive for our continued upward trajectory.
S&N has grown from a splicing company to a premiere, national construction and utility-locating company. We build huge fiber networks, wireless networks and towers, and provide locating services for some of the biggest and best technology and infrastructure companies in the nation. Five short years ago, we worked in only a few eastern states; today we’re working in 39 states. All of this, and we’re still delivering what we promise, getting it right.
It’s easy to lose track of how far we’ve travelled, especially when we have our nose to the grindstone, churning out work to meet deadlines. Which is why I want to pause for a moment to acknowledge how far we’ve come. Yes, there is always work to be done and areas for improvement. But, when I hear from clients that our people are setting the “gold standard” for operational excellence, I know we’re on the right track.
S&N has grown to become a nationally recognized leader in wired and wireless infrastructure construction and utility locating. As we move forward in overcoming internal and external challenges, and in bettering our understanding of how each part of our company works together, I continue to hope for, and expect, great things for our future.
And thanks to our customers for trusting us to get the job done right.
