About Us

ABOUT OUR COMPANYLarry Smith Inc was incorporated in 2011 in the State of Ohio.   In late 1999 and early 2000, as the benefits of Trenchless technology were becoming well known all over North America, two enterprising entrepreneurs, named Larry Smith, being successful owner of large deep sewer and water line company, became extremely interested in this growing technology. They liked the idea that it was proving to be a faster and more productive rehabilitation for underground utility systems, with minimal aboveground disruption.  Hence, Larry Smith was named President and successfully completed the transition from the “old” Larry Smith Contractors Inc to the “new” Larry Smith Inc.

Shortly thereafter, Larry Smith Contractors Inc. established its operational office in Cleves, Ohio.  Larry Smith, who has 40-plus years experience in the underground utility rehabilitation business. Our exceptionally well-qualified and experienced project manager, Dave Johnson -- together with our estimator Kelly Simpson, are able to provide effective onsite management of our projects.  Their oversight, together with the persistent and conscientious efforts of our experienced foremen and crew members, work to ensure a successful and timely completion of our projects.  Resumes can be provided upon request.
