In The Beginning

One day, while working on a construction site in rural Bainbridge Island, WA, Larry, the founder and former president, was inspired to find a simple and efficient solution to a common problem: “Where is my septic tank?” This was a question he would often hear during construction. With the help of Charlie, the engineer, and a few key contributors, they developed the AR-1 or Ardy receiver and the AT-12 flushable transmitter. Since then, their product line has expanded to cater to various areas of the locating industry. first locating
