A family of entrepreneurial men spanning three generations is bound to have as many shouting matches as it has celebratory beers, but what makes the DocuSite story interesting is where we came from, and where we’re going.
Our story starts with Skip McIntosh, a founding member of Kelly Cable Corporation as well as SiteWise LLC, an excavation and utility field service company, who helped build the company where his father Guy McIntosh also worked. There, he developed a deep, firsthand understanding of the excavation and underground utility industry and the unique challenges it faced. At Kelly, Skip ran the operations, developed best practices and optimized operational efficiencies that moved the company forward until he sold his interest in 2005.
Then, together with Skip’s son Justin McIntosh, he founded Safe Site Inc. - an underground utility field services and locating company that quickly grew to over 300 employees in eight years across the US.
After countless motels, arduous road trips, spirited bids and winging it when we had to, we finally found our stride in the space.
Safety, quality and risk management through proper documentation has always been in the DNA of our family. Skip has been recognized by the Rodney Slater the United States Secretary of Transportation for his work with industry best practices to help keeping America safe by prevent underground utility damages.
So in 2013, when Skip and Justin found themselves fresh off the successful sale of SafeSite Inc, they decided to try to make a real impact on the industry that gave them so much.
DocuSite was created to help bring other small, medium and family-owned underground construction businesses to the table with the big players.
