Reduct was founded in 2001 by a group of internet-boom entrepreneurs who recognized the need for a mapping solution for non-metallic underground pipes and ducts. In the second half of the 1990s, vast and rapidly deployed small-diameter HDPE data duct networks were installed. However, the accuracy of as-built data was poor. To provide a solution for this pipeline management challenge, Reduct launched the DuctRunner.
Over the years, Reduct recognized that positional data quality is a key pipeline management issue for all underground utility pipes and ducts and developed a series of innovative gyroscope-based mapping solutions for virtually all types of sub-surface pipe and duct infrastructures.
Today, Reduct is recognized as a global innovator in the field of underground utility network management and detection. Dedicated staff, skilled distributors, excellent customer service and a loyal customer base drive us daily to continue the quest to make underground pipelines more visible and accessible.
