Jon Taylor – President and CEO

Jon Taylor relocated from the UK after managing a project that involved mapping the plan and profile of 998 miles of fiber-optic cable between Philadelphia, Washington DC, and Chicago. He is proud to provide the best and most accurate data from underground inspections as possible, and is adding to our growing vacuum excavation potholing division and now presenting utility line drawings in 3-D.

Jon has had a vast experience in locating underground pipes and cables. He possesses the ability to conduct thorough fieldwork and to communicate findings to associates and clients, which ensures that project goals are met in a complete and timely fashion. Since Subtronic acquired its Vac’ n Dig 3000 System, Jon has supervised the confirmation of more than seven hundred utilities.
