Our story

We are Stake Center Locating℠, a locating powerhouse with extensive resources and decades of experience.

Stake Center Locating℠ dates back to 1997 when we performed our first locating job in Utah at the request of a customer looking for an alternative to meet their needs. We quickly found our place as one of the nation’s fastest growing companies, receiving a spot on the “Inc. 500” list in 1999.

Beginning in 2002, this honor was followed by three consecutive years on the “Utah 100” list, as one of the most rapidly growing companies in the state, as well as another Inc. 500 appearance in 2003.

When we secured two back-to-back nationwide fiber contracts in 2008 and 2009, our footprint grew from four states to 37.

In 2012 the company was acquired by Sun Capital Partners, providing the financial resources to invest and grow the business.

As our locating operations continued to grow, 2019 marked the year where Stake Center Locating℠ completed the recapitalization of the company’s capital with Sun Capital Partners, creating a solid foundation for long-term growth.

Also in 2019 and 2021, we were named one of the 5,000 fastest growing companies in the United States, according to the “Inc. 5000.”

We are a company that cares. A company that operates with a small, hometown feel because relationships and collaboration are at the heart of how we do business. We understand what’s at stake for our employees, our customers, and our customers’ customers. That’s why we continually invest in our people, equipment and technology. Because to us, being safe, accurate and timely are never to be taken for granted—they’re personal.
