Our History

Located in Ottawa, IL, LMK Technologies was founded in 1993. For more than a decade, LMK has been designing and producing trenchless systems and solutions. The need for lateral renewal and sealing has been a major focus of LMK’s research and development through innovative and unique cured in-place pipe (CIPP) products.

LMK Technologies has pioneered CIPP lateral renewal technology and has driven the industry forward with new products and technologies to facilitate the rehabilitation of sewers for 20 years. In its relatively small lifespan as a company, LMK has invested time and resources on research and development; continually improving upon existing technology. As a manufacturer and technology provider, we offer contractors everything they need to succeed in the trenchless CIPP rehabilitation business. With our dedication to research and development of cutting-edge technology we also serve as one the most comprehensive sources of education and information in the industry.

Any product with the LMK name is indeed a trusted choice with the added value of constant support from the LMK team.
