Building a World of Sustainable Communities
Corix designs, supplies, builds, installs, finances, and operates local utility infrastructure on behalf of municipal, institutional, military, and private-sector customers.
Inspired by our vision to build a world of sustainable communities, Corix is recognized as a community-focused provider of the essential utility products and services necessary to ensure the long-term viability of the communities and customers we serve.
We differentiate ourselves from traditional utility service providers through our broad expertise in water, wastewater, and energy utilities and our ability to leverage that scope of expertise to structure tailored solutions that meet the requirements of small and medium-sized communities.
A new way of thinking
Corix harnesses economies of scope and long-term partnerships to provide essential utility infrastructure, products and services at the local community level. Our target markets are the small to medium-sized North American communities whose unique needs are not addressed by the traditional economies of scale model. Corix's strategy is based on the belief that:
- The traditional approach of applying a standardized system of rates, products, or services across different customer groups, markets, cost structures, and regulatory jurisdictions increases regulatory and business risks.
- Treating all customers the same fails to meet the unique requirements of separate customers and communities such as residential developments, military bases, resorts, and university campuses.
- A multi-utility approach is the most cost-effective way to serve customers and communities where economies of scale are not achievable.
