We lay the foundation our customers grow on!
In 1983, in the middle of Houston’s worst economic downturn, Russ Lundemo saw an opportunity to start a different kind of company. RL Utilities, Inc. was founded with the determination to be a company that was diversified enough to handle large and small projects that were unique and challenging. Russ’s past experience with municipal rehab projects led him primarily into the rehab of existing sewer systems through pipe slip lining and large point repairs, which were out of reach for the average Municipal Utility District. As Houston’s economy improved in the late 80’s and early 90’s and the pace of building increased, Russ found another opportunity to expand his business. He began working with plumbers, general contractors, and developers to install new site underground utilities. At that same time government restrictions on storm flow were becoming more stringent, expanding the demand for the installation of onsite underground storm water runoff systems, which became a large part of RL Utilities’ core business today as it transitioned from a rehab company to new construction company.
As customer demand grew for RL Utilities’ services, they eagerly met those needs and began the transition to a full site work contractor. In 2020 the transition was complete and RL Utilities rebranded to RL Siteworx. While a new name was created to encompass the new breadth of services, the same values of quality, gritty “can do” attitude, super human productivity, teamwork, and family still ring throughout all RL does.
