The capabilities of a big company. 

The "hands-on" service of a small firm.  


Custom Underground, Inc. is a certified Female Business Enterprise (State of Illinois CMS Business Enterprise Program)


Founded in 1977, we've been family-owned and operated for 38 years and are woman-owned and managed.The Company's initial focus was on landscaping, excavating and concrete work.  By the mid-1980s, we'd expanded to a work force of about 50 employees and a fully-equipped construction yard in Bartonville, Illinois. 

The Company was one of the first in Central Illinois to take advantage of new technology and machinery for underground directional drilling, which opened up opportunities for work in the utility industry.  We were able to secure contracts with major telecoms and experienced significant growth as demand for underground utility construction expanded. 

In 1996, we incorporated and changed our name to Custom Underground, Inc.  By this time, the range of services we were able to offer had also increased. 

Today, we can provide a complete range of design-build and construction services, including:

  • Aerial
  • Undergournd
  • Directional Boring
  • Buried & Drops
  • Splicing - Copper & Fiber
  • Manhole Installation
  • Excavation
  • Hydrovac
  • Tree Trimming
  • Geothermal Installation
  • Wind Installation 

Our focus is in the Midwest including Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, and Wisconsin, servicing these areas with three permanent and fully-equipped construction yards.  Our workforce of 100 to 200 employees is fully mobile.

We've succeeded by entertaining a wide range of opportunties, both big and small.  We have been fortunate to have had great customers with innovative outlooks and progressive management.  We're proud to be a part of the competitive utility  industry, and its ever-changing and ever-challenging technological and business environment. 

In short, we're proud of our past, and excited about the future!
