A&L Underground, Inc. has always taken pride in “thinking outside the box”. This attitude led to several key technology developments and now to a fast growing International Projects group. We are now dedicated to serving customers outside the US with the same focus and expertise our US customers have grown to expect over 30 years.
A&L International began this International venture with its Directional Drilling Division installing gas and oil pipelines under rivers in Mexico fifteen years ago. We have been involved in telecommunication installation, electric power transmission, and environmental remediation as well as pipeline construction throughout Mexico, Virgin Islands, Canada, Bangladesh, Venezuela and Iraq.
A&L has developed relationships in Turkey, Jordan, Mexico, Venezuela, India, Bangladesh, Iraq and Nigeria. We have substantial equipment and US trained foreign nationals and expatriates in several countries. They have extensive open cut, directional drilling, gas transmission, gas distribution and telecommunication design and construction training and experience.
A&L Underground, Inc. was founded in 1977 by the President, Alex Lowe. Beginning with the purchase of a single ditching machine, A&L Underground, Inc. focused on construction of gas distribution projects in a three-state region that consisted of Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri in the United States. As A&L's service area expanded in the 1980's into the South, Southeast and Rocky Mountains regions of the United States, A&L continued to develop new technologies and combined that with growing capability.
Out of the gas distribution projects developed a demand for growth into Municipal utilities and telecommunications markets. Upon the development and manufacturing of mid-range horizontal directional drilling rigs in the mid 1980's, A&L Underground, Inc. quickly established a new division dedicated to Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD).
During the same period another division began to emerge dedicated to the ever-expanding gas and liquids transmission pipeline market. The Pipeline Division evolved into a dedicated department dealing with various diameters of steel pipeline projects.
All of this gained A&L Underground, Inc. recognition and we were named to the 1997 Kansas Technology Fast 50 Awards for demonstrating leadership in technology and exceptional sales growth.
Today, A&L Underground, Inc. encompasses four distinct yet common divisions: Pipeline Construction & Maintenance, Utility & Gas Distribution, Horizontal Directional Drilling and Water Distribution. These divisions are represented geographically with offices in the following areas:
The most recent division added by A&L Underground, Inc. is its International Projects group. This fast expanding division is based on long term success in Mexico and South American where A&L has performed both HDD, facility and pipeline projects for a wide variety of privet and Governmental customers.
