    Welcome to the vine. I haven't heard of them before but by looking at their website it looks like they are a private utility locator.

    On a related note after looking at their website I never realized how much it irritates me when people call EM locating "radio detection locating"

    FYI... there are over 450 employers registered at locatorjobs.com. All of them employ locators. That is a requirement for employers to post for free on my job site. You have to employ utility locators directly. Their might be a few that slipped by but the point i'm trying to make is that there are hundreds of companies out there that employ locators. I couldn't tell you exactly how many but I'm sure not all of them are signed up on the job site.

    Encompass has only been around for 3yrs. They are a private locating company based in Arizona. They have techs in several other states including California, Illinois, and Texas. I would say utility locating is about 35-40% of their business.
