ABOUT US

Company History

Omega Liner Company, Inc. was formed in October 2016 by industry veterans Gary Strom, Brandon Strom, and Ken Moulds. Frustrated with the long lead times and lack of reliable performance from material suppliers, they wanted to control their own supply chain so they could ensure fast & efficient response to their customers’ needs. They not only imagined but created a way to streamline, secure and manufacture their own ultraviolet cured-in-place pipe (UV-CIPP) liners to become their own material supplier. 

Omega Liner Company was incorporated in 2017 and is centrally located in Canton, South Dakota. Today, Omega continues to grow and expand its markets, providing premium quality UV-CIPP liner products and installation equipment to contractors who demand only the highest performing materials available. Omega also has expanded into the development of proprietary equipment and process technologies that not only optimize their own liner product performance, but also eases the installation for their contractor customers and provides confidence in the long-term efficiency of the installed product.

They educate potential customers about effective rehabilitation methods that will save time, money and minimize inconvenience for the driving public.
