Who We Are
Brotherton Pipeline, Inc. has been qualified in the field of installation of gas transmission lines, distribution lines, plastic services, and installation of all underground utilities for over three decades. We have more than thirty years of experience in directional drilling, jack & bore, and auger casing bores.
Our company has installed waterlines, communications cable, sewer pipe, storm drains and natural gas transmission and distribution lines in municipalities both large and small. Tough jobs are our specialty – we’ll tackle projects that other pipeline companies don’t want to handle.
We are active members of National Utility Contractors of America (NUCA), Distribution Contractors Association (DCA), Midwest Energy Association (MEA), ISNetworld (ISN), Avetta (PICS), American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP), Associated General Contractors (AGC), Pipeline Testing Consortium (PTC) and Veriforce.
We are currently licensed to do business in the states of California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Colorado and Minnesota. We are a registered minority contractor.
Jim Brotherton and key employees of Brotherton Pipeline, Inc. were instrumental in the design and development of many of our original drill machines. Brotherton Pipeline, Inc. currently uses Ditch Witch, American Auger, and Vermeer drill machines. We also maintain a full-time machine and welding shop, which redesigns and upgrades directional drill heads and reams. A rock hammer system designed and developed by Jim Brotherton was patented in 1991.
Our company has its roots in Sage Pipeline, which was formed in Gold Hill, Oregon in 1965 by Warren Brotherton. He established a legacy of integrity, pride in workmanship, quality and professionalism that is continued by his son, Jim Brotherton, who created Brotherton Pipeline, Inc. in 1984.
Building on a family commitment to excellence, Jim Brotherton has engineered the growth of his company into a leader in the underground utilities services industry. His sons, Matt and Israel, have learned the business literally from the ground up and have become experts at directional drilling. Several valuable employees have been with the firm since the Sage Pipeline days. Collectively, they carry forward the kind of business values and ethics so often missing in today’s impersonal construction climate.
