New Jersey based trenchless services contractor will expand Vortex geographical and service footprint to include mid-Atlantic region

The Vortex Companies, LLC, announced that it has acquired North American Pipeline Services, LLC (NAP), in a deal that will significantly expand its trenchless infrastructure service capabilities in the Mid-Atlantic Region, according to Mike Vellano, CEO, the Vortex Companies, reported Vortex Companies in the press release.

"This completion of this acquisition is a big step toward our vision of providing trenchless services in this region where the need for infrastructure rehabilitation has never been greater," said Vellano in the press release.

Originally based in Lakewood, New Jersey, NAP was founded in 1974 where the three-person company focused on underground utilities before Tom Mullen purchased the company in 2012.

Through his guidance, the company began offering CCTV inspection and trenchless rehabilitation services. NAP presently employs 55 people and is considered one of the largest pipe rehabilitation contractors in the tri-state area.

"We've had great working relationship with Vortex Companies over the years and share the same vision of delivering high-level service and permanent repair solutions through our trenchless products and applications," said Tom Mullen, owner and managing partner at NAP, according to the press release. "As part of Vortex, we will have added resources and experience that will allow us to further expand our service offerings to support our commercial and municipal customers' needs."
