We are a family operated business based in Poulsbo, WA, just west of Seattle on the Olympic Peninsula. We have been innovating and manufacturing underground locating equipment for over 20 years. Our goal at Prototek is to engineer products to aid you to be accurate and efficient on the job site. Whether that includes pumping septics tanks, locating electrical lines or everything in between, Prototek products give you the performance technology, ease of use and durability you want.

Inspired on a construction site one day in rural Bainbridge Island, WA, Larry (President) came up with a simple efficient solution to an age old problem, “Where is my septic tank?”. This was a question he would hear often during construction. So with the expertise of Charlie (Engineer) and a few other contacts, they created their first locating system called the AR-1 or Ardy receiver and the AT-12 flushable transmitter. Since then our product line has expanded to reach many areas of the locating industry.

Larry’s daughter, Meghan, joined the team in 2004, learning the business from the manufacturing side first and has since moved to the front of the house. She will be carrying on Larry’s vision for years to come.

We value our customers business and feedback. We know we are only successful because of customer loyalty and support.

Thank you for your continued business,

Larry Smith & Meghan Smith
