Ottawa, Ill. – Rick Gage, Vice President of Sales at LMK Technologies, has been named to the board of directors for the Midwest Society for Trenchless Technology (MSTT). The non-profit organization was established in 1998 to promote trenchless technology education and its public benefits in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin.
“MSTT is dedicated to advancing the science and practice of trenchless technology through training, education and field demonstrations,” says Leonard Ingram, MSTT executive director. “Rick will be a wonderful advocate for our society, helping to spread the word and increase the visibility of this eco-friendly and cost-effective approach to repairing broken, cracked or worn out lateral sanitary sewer lines.”
“Many municipalities and industry professionals are still unaware of the value afforded through the latest ‘no dig’ technologies,” adds Gage. “This includes the ability to easily and cleanly repair underground sanitary sewer lines without digging up driveways, landscapes, porches and other outdoor structures. It is truly a pleasure to discuss and promote the benefits of a technology that offers so many environmental and cost-saving advantages.”
Gage was officially named to the MSTT board of directors at the 2016 Annual Membership Meeting held at the NASTT No Dig Show in Dallas Texas on March 20. MSTT is a regional Chapter of the North American Society for Trenchless Technology (NASTT), which is also a regional Chapter of the International Society for Trenchless Technology (ISTT.)
Over the past 10 years at LMK, Gage has actively worked to educate municipal personnel and specifying engineers about trenchless rehabilitation methods. Throughout this time, he has also served as the direct liaison between LMK and the many government entities, contractors and vendors based in North America, Europe, South America and Asia.
