Building a Strong Infrastructure for More Than 25 Years

Hoffman Southwest Corp., a California Corporation headquartered in Mission Viejo, California, was established in 1946 and incorporated in 1972. Twenty years later, in 1992, Hoffman Southwest began operating Professional Pipe Services (Pro-Pipe) as a “DBA” of Hoffman Southwest Corp. Today, in addition to Pro-Pipe, Hoffman Southwest owns and operates Tri-State, specializing in cured in place pipe lining and Accumark, specializing in utility locating. Hoffman Southwest has 11 offices in 8 states, with the ability to provide both regional and national pipeline infrastructure services and programs. 

Since its beginning, Pro-Pipe has provided video inspection, cleaning and rehabilitation of pipelines in a variety of sizes. We have grown to become one of the largest CCTV inspection companies in the nation, and the trusted leader of natural gas companies for the identification of cross bores in lateral lines. Pro-Pipe is focused on the long-term commitment to quality services provided to utility owners, government agencies and municipalities, engineering firms, and infrastructure construction firms.

Striving to Meet Our Goal of an Injury-Free Workplace and Safe Pipelines in our Communities

Pro-Pipe is driven by a strong safety culture with thoroughly planned processes, safety policies and programs to comply with state, federal and OSHA requirements. Our processes include certified personnel training; developing job safety analyses; driver training and fleet management programs; OSHA 10-hour and 40-hour federal courses; Cal/OSHA construction training; and creating and developing safety programs required for Pro-Pipe to establish a safe working environment for employees, the public and all entities where work is performed.

The company takes safety very seriously. We convene quarterly, monthly and daily safety meetings. The quarterly meetings are held at the executive leadership level to review trends, incident claims, incident cause/prevention, and what can be implemented from a policy and procedural process to further improve the safety culture. Senior managers (who comprise our corporate safety committee) meet monthly for planning and implementation of initiatives uncovered during the executive meetings. Each branch gathers monthly and daily for safety meetings. When you work with Pro-Pipe, you can be confident that you’re partnering with a company that puts safety first.
