If we had to pick one word to describe 2014, it would be this word: GROWTH.
Our acquisition of Stake Center Locating, an ideal pairing, had much to do with our growth.
As our national footprint has grown, the depth of services we’re able to offer our customers has expanded. Buried and aerial cable/fiber installation. Nationwide utility locating. Wireless construction, maintenance and deployment. And much, much more.
We’re not just growing—our work is being noticed. In November, S&N’s CEO, David Allen Powell, was inducted into the Virginia Cable Telecommunications Association Hall of Fame. Big deal? You bet.
While we’re proud of our 2014, there’s still more to accomplish in 2015. The coming year will see an explosion of fiber growth with more and smaller fiber companies choosing to own their fiber versus leasing out connections from larger companies. Demand is so great, even fiber-to-cell towers that were completed just a few years ago will require upgrading. Add in that Virginia is one of the first of what will likely be many states looking to convert aerial power lines to buried to avoid the costs and downtime associated with storms and natural disasters, and guess what? Sounds like we’ve got our work cut out for us.
S&N is ready to rise to the challenge. Bring it on, 2015!
