History of Subsite Electronics

In 1989, the Ditch Witch organization entered the horizontal directional drill market with the Jet Trac®. And while the big orange machine got most of the press, it wouldn’t have been possible without Subsite® Electronics.  A year earlier, Subsite Electronics had been formed with one mission - to develop HDD guidance systems needed for the current and future Ditch Witch Jet Trac drills.  And within three years, that mission had expanded to include development of a new utility locating product line.  By 1991, Subsite Electronics had introduced a comprehensive line of innovative and reliable HDD guidance and utility locating products to the underground construction marketplace.  

Over the next 20+ years, Subsite's business and product offerings continued to expand and diversify, to eventually include Ground Penetrating Radar and a wide variety of equipment machine controls.  Today, as an independent company within Charles Machine Works, Subsite Electronics continues to utilize state-of-art electronic technologies to provide underground construction professionals innovative, productive and reliable electronic products to facilitate the installation and maintenance of buried pipe and cable.
