Subsite Electronics, a Charles Machine Works Company, has acquired the assets of R.S. Technical Services Inc. (RST), an innovator in the design and manufacture of closed-circuit television remote inspection and monitoring cameras. The deal adds proven camera inspection capabilities to Subsite’s robust line of “Underground Awareness” solutions.
“This acquisition adds a significant offering for lining contractors and municipalities in the rehab and replacement market, broadening our solutions in the life cycle of the pipe,” said Rick Johnson, CEO of Charles Machine Works. “It will also help support our current HDD customers, who are diversifying into areas like cross bore inspection work.”
RST camera systems feature single conductor technology, which accommodates all power feed and return functions in a single cable. Past RST innovations include the first true pan-tilt camera with tracking lights from a U.S. manufacturer, the first steerable storm drain tractor or large pipeline tractor, the first single conductor laser and sonar profiling systems, and many more.
Subsite provides underground construction professionals a comprehensive suite of electronic products, including utility locators, horizontal directional drilling (HDD) guidance equipment and equipment machine controls.
