ON THE MARK LOCATORS PRIVATE LOCATING PROSPERS WITH DEPENDABLE EQUIPMENT, LOYAL TEAM

Utility locating work runs deep in Jake Mason’s blood. Now the President of Indiana-based, On The Mark Locators, Jake Mason has been surrounded by this type of work since he was a child.
Started private utility locating company, Blood Hound, and owned it for more than 20 years before selling it in fall of 2016. Jake followed in his father’s footsteps, working alongside him for years before deciding to venture out on his own.
We took a job selling the equipment he had been using for many years—as Envirosight product specialist at Best Equipment Company.
But We quickly saw an opportunity to take his experience, knowledge, and the equipment he so heavily advocated for, with him to start something of his own.
“While I was working at Best, I still had a lot of contacts and old customers in the utility world who would call and ask if I could come and do their utility locating or sewer inspections,” Mason says. “I kept saying ‘No, no I’m out of that world’ but it came to the point where too many people were asking and it was too good of an opportunity to pass up. They just needed a reliable and experienced partner like they had in the past.”

A New Pursuit

In the fall of 2019, he opened On The Mark Locators Private Locating—which offers private utility locating, utility mapping, ground penetrating radar, concrete scanning, subsurface utility engineering, vacuum excavation and sewer inspection/cross-bore mitigation services. Several of Mason’s family members and former employees from their previous company jumped on board, too.
“When starting this company, I knew I had to have Envirosight equipment,” Mason says. “We bought one inspection truck with the ROVVER X and SAT system right away, and we have the new SAT II system on the way. At our old company, we had 12 SAT trucks, 8 of which we bought within a year.” The Envirosight camera systems help Mason and his crew more accurately locate utilities in less time, he says. “To me, the Envirosight products are the best tools on the market,” Mason says. “I think Envirosight is state of the art. When you compare them to the other camera systems, and we’ve demoed all of them, you really want to make sure you’re getting the most out of your money.”
